    Plain or glazed. I don't like surprises with my donuts.

    I'm partial to Dunkin Donuts, but usually gravitate to Tim Horton's.

    I came home Friday to find 4 donuts waiting. Unfortunately, I had to share. But it was a great surprise as we rarely get donuts at all. And donuts are good.

    I am not a discriminating donut eater. I'll try anything. But I am not a big fan of filled donuts. That may be because of a bad experience I had with some day-old cream filled ones, a day of skiing and an evening of puking all over (including inside) my friend's car... Good times.

    But I chose Bear Claws because, well, they are awesome and bigger than your average donut. I'm always looking for a good value...

    I'm a fan of the ones with chocolate on top, white cream inside. Unfortunately they seem hard to find in the Chicago area. In Buffalo they had them at Dunkin and Tim Horton's, not so here. There is a bakery in Woodstock and Harvard that sells them, but its a little far to go for donuts.

    Apple Fritter. You know it's healthy cause it's got apples in it. Filling, tasty, and enough sugar to induce a coma. [drool on] I'm experiencing a Pavlovian moment just thinking about it.[/drool off]

    It seems that donuts from Ohio help people win super bowls...

    Personally, I like plain glazed donuts. Boring, but so good with coffee.

    Powdered doughnuts! (Not available as a poll option) Been my favorite since I was little.

    Also nothings beats a glazed Krispy Kreme when the Hot & Fresh sign is glowing.

    Of course, you missed the most basic "baked or fried" debate. I prefer mine baked and frosted. There was a time I could eat any donut. Over the years I have gotten to where I only want a good donut and can skip the basic grocery store or Dunkin selection. I mentioned in a previous post that the best donut I have ever eaten was from a former gas station converted to bakery in Thermopolis, Wyoming. Baked, with chocolate frosting.

    I rarely eat donuts; it's probably been 5 years since I've had one. Guess I'm more of a bagel person. But my favorite is lemon-filled.

    I wouldn't put bagels in the same category as doughnuts. Doughnuts are a prelude to diabetic shock. Bagels are healthy.

    I don't eat many donuts, but when I do, I like custard-filled with chocolate glaze, or a chocolate-glazed cruller (is that the correct spelling?).

    When there were Krispy Kreme donut shops in western PA, I loved the fresh, warm glazed donuts.

    I still don't understand how Dunkin Donuts can have a shop on practically every street corner but Krispy Kreme only seems to have two stores in the entire Chicagoland region. They sell them in supermarkets here but they just aren't as fresh.

    I love the Hot and Ready Krispy Kreme's, best .79 ever... I am partial to glazed or a good cake donut, although everytime I have a donut I regret it. A donut is rarely as good as it looks.

    Slightlly OT: For other Texans what is the deal with all the donut shops here? At least in the Houston area it seems there is a donut shop on every corner. I have never lived in a place where donut shops were so prolific.

    I love Dunkin' Donuts. Could probably eat about half-a-dozen most days. But I usually stick to 2 - 4, when I go.

    My favorites are chocolate or vanilla frosted (especially with sprinkles), glazed, glazed chocolate, and jelly-filled. I also like chocolate or vanilla-frosted long johns. And fritters are good too. Not a fan of cream-filled donuts. I'm not a big coffee drinker, but if I'm having donuts, count me in on the coffee for sure! Plain donuts are great with coffee.

    Krispy Kreme seemed like they were emerging in the Chicago area in the early-mid 2000s, and then just kinda gave up. Krispy Kremes are alright, but I prefer DD and their variety.

    I think Krispy Kreme over-extended themselves a few years ago.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Tim Horton's Maple Dip. Its because I hate America and find the Canadian National Anthem as easy to sing as the US one. Its either that or my dad took me to too many Hockey Games growing up.
