Comments That Donut Warrant a Thread

Toasted coconut - the vanilla / plain version, not the chocolate nonsense - is the best one. You're wrong if you disagree but feel free to add your thoughts.

Portland, Maine hipster donut chain (does two stores count as a chain? Maybe not. I think they're opening more) Holy Donut is where it's at. They have an awesome bacon maple one too.

We also have Tony's Donuts, which is an awesome old man, donut shop that Michael J. Fox randomly visited last year.

This place is the shit. Their doughnuts are massive but they're pricey. Toasted coconut and chocolate are the best flavors.

Not sure what the guy does to his donuts to give me severe heartburn, but the biggest local place affects me this way. The wares are across the board tasty, but I always have the worst pains afterwards. None of this hits me at Krispy kreme or any other chain.

The local place is so good people in other locales visit and then post on the FB about the "Best donuts ever." He actually branched out to Baton Rouge near LSU campus. On day one they couldn't keep up with the crowds.

My favorite variety of donut is jelly. The red (strawberry?) kind moreso than the lemon, but I usually get one of each anyway.

Beechwood Doughnuts in Saint Catharines are 100% vegan doughnuts and roughly 11 dollars for a half-dozen.

God. Damn. Are they ever outstanding. I have never been there when the line was less than 20 minutes.

As a fun aside, the Canadian Press stylebook says both "donut" and "doughnut" are acceptable for print. I always prefered "doughnut", but I don't know why.

Oh, and I'm obligated to share this anytime someone talks about doughnuts:

A couple years ago I was in Vegas, and the Fremont casino had/has a Dunkin' Donuts inside.  They had some kind of a peanut butter and chocolate-based cronut, and it was delicious, maybe the best donut I've had.  When I went back last month, I was disappointed to find that they no longer offer it.

I rarely go out of my way to get donuts, but when I do, I don't think you can go wrong with anything fruit-filled, be it raspberry, lemon, etc.  We have a place called Jack's Donuts here in town which briefly offered a key lime-filled donut which was very good.  I've always been a fan of dutch crumb, as well, and later in life have taken a liking to apple fritters.  (I know as you read this paragraph it may seem like I'm contradicting that first sentence, but you have to understand I worked nearly 16 years in a grocery store which had a ready supply of donuts in its bakery section.)
