Poll! Krispy Kreme or Dunkin?!

  • When I first moved out on my own, DD actually cared about donuts. That first weekend I was starving at 3 in the morning. I left my place, drove to Dunkin' Donuts and grabbed myself a dozen donuts so fresh some of them were still warm when I got home. I've been in love ever since despite the fact they no longer make my favorite donut much less half of what they used to. It's a comfort thing for me.

    My life was forever changed recently by a visit to Duck Donuts... Forever.

    Dunkin...because all Krispy Kremes taste exactly the same to me. Not that they're bad, or that Dunkin is particularly good.

    Krispy Kreme for "regular" donuts, Dunkin for "cake" donuts. KK makes a mean cruller, but it doesn't match Dunkin's.

    Any chance that chain ANYTHING (including doughnuts) suck and local places are usually better? Country Donuts in Boise beats the piss out of any donut I ever tried anywhere ever. Including Voodoo Dougnuts in P-Town, which are good, but are overhyped. Never tried TH, but I'm willing to bet they're a chain like many other chains. The best burger you've eaten was, hopefully, not at a Mcdonald's, Burger King, Carl's, Jr., etc.

    this is a gross oversimplification usually driven more by tribalism and contrarianism than reality.

    Articulate response. Not true in this case. I mean, opinions are opinions, so of course your opinion can't be wrong... but it is. And I am not tribalist. I make fun of the beer in Idaho CONSTANTLY, even though I'm a local. No, sir, I search for truth. California and Oregon beer is far, far superior to anything in Idaho (including their absolute best). Chain donuts are a sad, sad excuse for a donut, and I don't need anything fancy like thyme or lavender on mine. Just a real donut. You know, the kind that make the paper bag see through?

    I had Dunkin donuts over the weekend. It wasn't as satisfying and fulfilling as Krispy Kreme is in my opinion. Plus fresh donuts off the belt? Uh hell yes.

    for actual donuts, Lamars. Old fashioned sour cream with chocolate drizzle to be exact. But I had a pumpkin macchiato at dunkin a few days ago and I am in love.

    I have never been to either of those places...I feel so left out. :'(

    We do have a place here called Holy Donuts and they have all kinds of fancy donuts. Oreo donuts, birthday cake donuts, pumpkin spice donuts, bacon donuts, red velvet donuts...the place is dangerous.

    I'm a krispy kreme person by far! Dunkin is so dense and overrated to me!

    Nothing beats a fresh hot Krispy Kreme donut :yum:

    I vote for Krispy Kreme but I put them in the fridge first. I like the texture of the cold icing.

    Glazed doughnuts taste like nothing. Sourdough doughnuts at either place are an ok alternative. The best cake doughnuts in my area are made fresh at Casey's gas stations. Love the blueberry with light glaze.

    Depends on whether I'm in the mood for a donut or just pure sugar demi-doughnuts. Both are perfect for certain moods

    No preference. I eat maybe one donut a year and I don't drink coffee :-). I have had a few of Dunkins breakfast food offerings and they are ok but not any better than I can easily make at home. We don't have a Krispy Kreme around here but I have been when traveling for work.

    I used to prefer Krispy Kreme but now it's too sweet for me, so DD. Not a big doughnut person though.
