Getting back to donuts...



This news item from the AP this morning (via Yahoo): Dunkin' Donuts is trying to make a healthier donut by getting rid of as many trans-fats as possible. They have to do this in NYC and Philly, which have banned them in all restaurants. Not to be outdone, Krispy Kreme (which now has a "multigrain" donut) and Starborg's Starbuck's are announcing plans to follow. The inedible Winchell's says nothing.

Why don't they just give up?

Do you know of anywhere in Baltimore to get a good non-chain donut?

Forget about 'em.

Go to The Donut Shack.

Neither Dunkin' Donuts or Krispy Kreme comes close ...

Alex:

Is Donut Shack a chain? I've never heard of it. Or I guess it's just a mom n' pop sort of establishment. Next time I'm down Laurel way I'll try it.

MF: I think Alex might have just answered your question. Problem solved! (If you count Laurel, which at 13 miles away is more of the DC area, as the Baltimore area.)

No sir. There's one of them and one of them only. Family owned and operated. Rumor has it that the owner was the first employee in Maryland's first Dunkin' Donuts a *very* long time ago. Glad he quit, improved on things, and kept things going.

Donut Shack is in Severna Park, at the corner of MD-2 and Robinson Road (on the northbound side).

I'll check it out if I'm down that way. Thanks for the excellent tip.
