Peaceful Donuts

How lovely is it that our local Krispy Kreme donut shop is located on Peace Street? Could there be anything more perfect then a fresh, tasty donut and a rich cup of hot coffee early on a sunny morning, placidly placed on a street named Peace? I would say that's just about as peaceful as it gets! Makes me want plop down below the sign amidst the delicious smells of frying dough and meditate.

The neat thing about this particular Krispy Kreme is that it's one of the main distribution sites, so you can watch the donuts being made. We love watching them travel on the assembly line, evolving really, from just a piece of blobby dough to its final confection.

I have to say that I've always had a struggle deciding between Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts. KK has the delicious glazed creme filled donut while DD has the scrumptious powdered vanilla creme. Difficult decision. But luckily this is not one of my daily obsessions - yes, so many other things to fill my mind with, but sometimes it's just fun. Especially on a bright sunny morning on Peace Street!

Can't beat a great donut once in a while. We are a little spoiled by a local company. We'll drive across town for them.
So glad you stopped by my new blog. Please come by again.
