Default Crullers (Dunkin' Donuts)

(dkra) asks:

Someone here (or maybe rec.arts.comics.strips) mentioned that Dunkin'
Donuts recently (a few months ago?) discontinued their crullers.

What exactly are crullers, anyhow? How do they differ from a regular
doughnut?

I've seen several cruller recipes. One of them was a regular doughnut
recipie but specified a particular shaping of the dough. Another recipe
specified a raised yeast dough. Still another consists of a choux paste
(for cream puffs) dough, put through a pastry tube and fried. The first
two of them have a characteristic shape (strips of dough are twisted, with
the ends pressed down).

Will the real cruller please stand up?


cruller [KRUHL-uhr]
A doughnut-style dough (usually LEAVENED with baking powder) that's shaped into
a long twist, fried and sprinkled with granulated sugar or brushed with a sweet
glaze. The extremely light Freedom S French /S cruller is made with CHOUX
PASTRY (cream-puff dough). The word "cruller" comes from the Dutch krulle,
meaning "twisted cake."

Dunkin" Donuts didn't stop making their crullers, they stopped making their
original "Dunkin' Donut' which was a plain round donut with a little extra
piece ( probably a munchkin) attached to it to use as a "handle" so it could be
"dunked".

Heh heh! Staying indoors in front of a fire and watching it snow.


Ahhh, you echoed my thoughts exactly.

I'm not Jack but I spent the first half of my life in
New England and from my POV New Englanders are frozen
in their own inertia. I found that in all but the large
cities (i.e. Boston) the attitude pervades that driving
more than five miles to go out for a special dinner is
"way too far". It is a matter of pride to live all your
life in the same town where you were born, and often in
the same house.

Yes, there's upward mobility, but not lateral....

You may be correct, but living within five miles of Federal Hill in
Providence is not such a bad experience. So much good Italian food in
such a couple of blocks.

And living near a restaurant serving up great littlenecks on the half
shell, along with fried belly clams is not bad either.

Hey... are you saying I might be excessive when I think that
more than 10 blocks is "out of my neighborhood"?

It is a matter of pride to live all your
life in the same town where you were born, and often in
the same house.


That's bad?

.... lateral is the word of today. If you're driven (and
smart), lucky, or inherit a few bucks... then you can be
upwardly mobile, otherwise - NO.

Speaking of Dunkin' Donuts (was I?), I went to a small luncheon today
and wound up by happenstance sitting across from someone who owns a
number of Dunkin' Donut shops. DAMN I just thought of it, he said a
few KFCs TOO! and I didn't ask about the herbs and spices. I cannot
believe it. Well, if I remember, I'll probably be seeing them again
over the spring, so I'll try to remember then. Grrrr.

At any rate, he oddly brought up the Dunkin' Donut, you know, the one
with the handle. They don't make them any more. I was sure I saw
that someone else here mentioned that. He says he complained to the
new (?) owner company (whoever bought out the original) to no avail.
I was like BUT they are Dunkin Donuts! That was my favorite. Nothing
he can do, they won't bring it back.

What else ... he said a company from Canada is coming into the market,
(took me a while to understand, he is from India and I was across the
table from him), Tom something. Very good product. A few seconds I
thought, oh, I read about them on rfc, Tim Horton, like that? Yes.

Were they the ones bought out by Wendy's? I forget.

Krispy Kreme, he thinks they have not expanded rapidly enough. That
surprised me. He's the businessman, not me.

The "dunkin'" Dunkin' Donut is still alive and well in Phoenix.
