Use to stop on the way to work every morning and pick up a dozen. Now, 2 costs the same as the dozen. It was easy to stop eating them. Still love them though.

Enjoy.

I worked in a restaurant/bakery over the summer. About once or twice a week, my shift would end at the time that the bakery was making donuts for the mornings. The baker that always ran the fryer would load us up with the mess ups that were still warm.

Seems like I have the opposite problem of everyone here, instead of gaining weight, I lost ten pounds during the summer. Stick out tongue

A car gets pulled over and the cop walks up to the door.  With the window down the cop askes the driver:  "Do you know why I pulled you over?"

The driver responds:  "Was it because of the doughnut couplns in the back window?"

Funny that you should go there! My son was a cop in Oakland, CA (Yeah, scary!) Anyway, while hauling butt, Code Three (lights and siren) to a motor vehicle accident scene, a delivery van blew through a stop sign and my son T-boned the van. No long term injuries, but he did get a bunch of grief from his fellow officers .  .  . it was a donut truck!!

One day a couple of deputies went smoking by the shop on the highway, at around 80.  Told the co-workers, must be a life or death situation......donut drowning in a cup of coffee

Sometimes, while dunking donuts in my coffee, I think of my ex wife; and I hold it under until the bubbles stop .  .  .  and I smile.

When I was in the A.F. i learned that I could drive and eat almost anything except soup and salad.  You could never tell when the call might come in, mostly when you just sit down to eat after paying for your food that is never there when you get back, and never seen again.

Back then we had these drink holders that you would just slip inbetween the window and door frame and the food I would place in my brief case to keep itin one general area.

Sometimes for breakfast overseas I would get my weapon, equipment, and vehicle assignment and then go to the base defense snack bar for food.  Often I wouild be be something like a water buffalo cheese burger, and a drink if there was time.  Otherwise it was usually a bottle of soda and a few doughnuts.  I also kept a supply of food from the BX in my survival vest, just in case.

If I was lucky I could be driving one of our armored vehicles which gave me some place to put the food if I didn't get a chance to eat it while loading weapons and ammo and waiting for my quick reaction team.  If things were a little quiet I could just hide under a tree and wait for a problem that needed that much firepower.

My 'normal' breakfast as a Navy diver in Hawaii amounted to a can of Pepsi and a pack of those donut gems (mini donuts). Our XO was a female triathelete and was for some reason compelled to try and tell 'her' divers what they should eat, and thus was not appreciative of my usual fare. After several attempts by her to correct my evil ways, I showed up one day with a dozen box of regular, full sized chocolate donuts, and a liter bottle of JOLT Cola.

She never tried to council me on food again. Mission Complete!

Yes, like some ex-smokers or ex-drinkers; they want to convert the whole world to their ways. As for the drinking part, "I ain't going to those meetings, I ain't no quitter!"

I was reading this thread ... and got hungry...

Donughts are part of "Little Timmy's " food pyramid.

Along with Coca- Cola 

I have no idea why the pastry boxes are pink.

 

          

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage"
