The Morning Crew Goes Do-Nuts! [PHOTO]

Krispy Kreme Donut

If the KLAW Morning Crew is good for nothing else, we are at least good at building your appetite. This morning I was wandering around Lawton looking for a donut shop, and I started wondering about donut facts (I often do that) and seeing its International Donut Week (yes, that’s a REAL thing) all types of interesting facts and trivia came up instantly just by typing in the word “donut” into my smart phone (I was really just looking for the closest bakery.)

For example, Krispy Kreme has come up with a donut that costs $1700. YES! $1700 for 1 palm sized donut. Sure, the pastry is decorated with gilded leaves, gold dusted Belgian Chocolate flowers and edible diamonds. Its filled with rasberry jelly made with vintage 2002 Dom Perignon Champagne and Chateau d’Yquem Creme which is topped off with a fruit glaze potion, all gilded with edible 24-ct gold leaf and gold-dusted Belgian White Chocolate flowers ┬áto celebrate International Donut Week (I had to repeat that, because I can’t believe there is seven whole days dedicated to crullers, bear claws and jellies).The delicate delicacy ┬átakes three days to prepare and is only available in the UK at the upscale Selfridges Department Store.

Another doughie, gooey fact of glazed goodness that came to my attention is that the place to find donuts the easiest is my former home of Boston, MA, which has the most donut shops per capita of anywhere in America. One per every 2450 people. Explains a lot about the overall “shape” of Bostonians. Did you know that over 10 billion donuts are made in the US every year. That’s 31.5 donuts per year for every man, woman, child and radio personality in America. Mostly for the radio folks. Or that, as of 2011, there were 10 people in the United States with either the first or the last name “Donut” or “Doughnut”. SWEET!

So I stopped and picked up breakfast to the crew and stumbled upon Jeri’s favorite, chocolate bars. Two of those and two of my favorite, buttermilk bars and I was all set. All that and I still had $1696.37 left in my pocket. What is your favorite dough delite?
