    I was so excited when Krispy Kreme ended up near me, as I had heard such great things about their donuts. Then I tried them. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe my feelings.

    Neither. Long's Bakery here in Indy makes the best donuts.

    No Krispy Kreme near me, so Dunkin it is. But 7-11 makes a delicious Snickers brownie donut and key lime donut.

    The 711s by us just sell Krispy Kreme donuts. I'd definitely be interested in a key lime donut!

    Donuts are one of my absolute favorites but I would always prefer the local places. Not because "buy local" necessarily but just because their donuts are a thousand times better than DD or KK.

    For the sake of argument though, I'll say Dunkin just because I prefer their coffee and like their cruellers

    This dyed-in-the-wool Yankee trapped in the Deep South says Dunkin' all the way despite the fact that we pass the lit Krispie Kreme "HOT" sign every time we go anywhere. I like my doughnuts toothsome. Anybody remember the original DD shape with the little knob on the side for holding it while you dunk?

    Neither, since I now have had Neil's Donuts in Wallingford, CT. Insanely good.

    Krispy Kreme for their traditional, although I prefer Dunkin's glazed cake donuts. Both have been my downfall a couple of times since starting this process.

    Krispy Kreme, original glazed fresh off the conveyor. *drools*

    Sadly I'm in the UK where both KK and DD usually come out of a glass fronted cabinet in a supermarket, and not hot from anywhere. (There are a couple of "proper" KKs around London, but unhelpfully far from my work!)

    If it's going to be pimped with sprinkles etc, cream/kreme/goo then basically any brand of doughnut will do.
    Or in fact anything made with doughnut batter - funnel cake, churros, nom nom nom...

    Dunkin is trash. Krispy Kreme is wonderful but if you're really into doughnuts (like I am) I'd suggest looking for smaller specialty shops. Here in NYC we have Doughnut Plant and Dough that are more mainstream but amazing.

    I haven't had either in many years but when Krispy Kreme opened near me, I felt the same way before and after. It didn't stay open very long.

    Krispie Kreme... Whenever I go past the KK display at the grocery store I cry a little bit inside...

    KK FTW! Especially when that Hot & Fresh sign flashes. The drive thru becomes a parking lot.

    I do love me some munchkins though.

    Neither. Tim Horton's donuts.

    bwahaha.. I figured someone from my region had to chime in eventually.

    I'm Canadian but hate Tim's. There's nothing special about their food or drinks.

    We don't have a KK around, but I legit pass 5 Dunkin Donuts on my way to work. Not really a fan.

    Fresh Krispy Kreme just melt in your mouth.

    I grew up with KK but I moved into DD land. I'd take KK over DD just for the nostalgia factor and I think DD has pretty blah donuts.

    We have a donut truck- Beaver's- and they make these little mini donuts. Yummy and portion controlled.

    KK when they are "hot off the press," but what I REALLY love and would throw down against any doughnut anywhere are known in these here parts as "Amish Crack": a yeast doughnut dipped in some sort of caramel glaze and coated in powdered cinnamon sugar. They are of the devil. (Even though they are hand-made by the sweetest, most innocent Amish girls...who are doing the work of Satan himself).
