DailyDirt: Donuts Everywhere!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Who doesn't like a good doughnut (or donut)? Okay, so maybe a significant population around the world doesn't consume doughnuts regularly, but that could change. Doughnuts can be modified to be more savory and less sweet. These circular edibles have even been filled with curry. The possibilities are endless. If you're hungry and interested in these not-just-for-breakfast tidbits, check out these links. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    In Argentina, for example, they don't have donuts; they have facturas, a term that describes a broad class of vaguely similar pastries, much like "donut" does in the US. Most of them are very yummy, particularly those made at a high-quality panaderĂ­a.

      Re:

      i was just going to say, as a semi-fan of 'bizarre foods' show, andrew zimmern often runs across the same 'type' of food in a lot of places he visits across the globe...

      a donut-like food is found in a LOT of cultures...

    Isn't there a donut that truckers use for hemorrhoids?

    Behind the curve as usual.

    The Japanese (among many others) have been filling bread with all kinds of stuff (including curry) for decades. It's about time the US caught onto this.

    What they serve are Dunkin certainly doesn't qualify as donuts.
    You should have covered real donuts such as what they serve at Krispy Kreme.

    DD vanished

    Dunkin Donuts completely vanished from my state many years ago, but to be honest, nobody missed them much. Perhaps because there is a high density of small independent donut shops, most of which produce a better donut anyway.

    Human Rights Watch said it would cause "howls of outrage" if it ran in the US.


    But my question is: is it considered racist in Thailand? The article doesn't really say. Or is this a case of someone outside the culture taking offense on behalf of those inside the culture?

    It is very hard to pass the ``hot now'' sign when it is lighted up. Even if one of those inferior cake donut places got a hot donuts sign, it would not be the same.

    You might run an ordinary red light, but why would you run the lighted ``hot now'' sign? Just inside, that machine is pushing them through the hot oil and then that waterfall glazer.

    I'll trade you two wall-marts if you'll put in a KK instead.

      Re: Re: [billfleming] real donuts

      I've truly never understood the cultish appeal of Krispy Kreme. They do make great donuts, but they're no better than other great donut shops. As near as I can tell, the thing they really have going for them is the sign to tell you when they're just come out of the fryer.
