The Mark of a Good Donut…

…Is the distance a person will drive in order to buy one.

Studly Doright and I drove about an hour to have donuts at Johnson’s Donuts in Perry, Florida, this morning, but that was nothing. A couple from Gainesville, a two hour drive, came in just because someone told them that Johnson’s donuts were better than Krispy Kreme. They ordered one of everything. We didn’t stick around to see what they thought, but they sure had big smiles on their faces.

Studly and I had donut holes, hot donut holes. Well worth the drive.

Peace, people!

  1. There is a bakery called Sanremos (not a chain) that has the best donuts far and wide. If you’re not in line when the doors open at whatever time (can’t remember) you will have no donuts. I’ve had them, and they are incomparable to any other donuts so yeah, I get it. 🙂

  2. Do you have a Parlor Doughnuts nearby? They are really cronuts–croissants shaped like donuts–and oh my gosh are they delicious! We have Krispy Kreme here but our special treat is Parlor Doughnuts.

  3. Haha, amazing. So what is your verdict? Are they better than Krispy Kremes? We have Krispy Kremes here in the UK but they always taste dry and flavourless. I think it is because they are shipped from somewhere and are never fresh (like they are always sold in a kiosk or a fridge) – there are no Krispy Kreme ‘shops’. But recently in Nantwich, a small town in Cheshire, I found a place called Planet Doughnut. They sell doughnuts as big as your face and full of different flavours. They are so GOOD and I would totally drive an hour for them. I guess driving an hour is fun too as it’s like a road trip? I totally think any doughnuts here would not hold a candle to doughnuts in the US though. My husband went on a 2 week road trip in the US with his friends back in 2017 and he said the food there was way nicer than here and the portions way more generous.

    1. What makes Krispy Kreme’s so good in the US is that they roll off a converter belt so hot they almost melt in your mouth. Cold, they’re just another donut, but hit off the belt they’re amazing.

      1. They are SO good! I can eat an entire box without any trouble. Self-restraint flies out the window. So, I avoid driving past the store. The hot ones are so good that when a new batch is being made, the store’s sign flashes the words “HOT NOW”

      2. lol!!! No way!! I love that, a whole sign signifying when it’s hot!! We have a famous food chain here called Greggs and they sell savoury pies (pasties) and sweet things like custard slices, yum yums (glazed twisted doughnut) etc. It’s always a ‘roulette’ when you go in as you never know when the pasties will be hot and warm and fresh from the oven or cold and … sad. They are not nice when cold. I think the UK should take America’s example and have a ‘hot now’ sign for Greggs 😀
