    Now that's an interesting disclaimer, Charlie.
    Don't you think you should add something about the differences between Europe and the US or all continents?
    I f.e. don't know Boston Donuts. Who knows what I miss!

    It's not a fever, btw, but a necessity.


    ETA after posts have been moved: original post (to which the reply below was addressed) was here.

    Steve, if you come back here: I don't understand your problem either. The text doesn't fit with the title ("making twice"??) either, explanation-wise, sorry.

    I've never even seen a doughnut shop in the U.K. Never realised I needed one until now.

    Tesco - 5 sugar covered jam filled donuts for 65p.

    You’re welcome.

    Or, if you’re feeling posh, they have a Krispy Kreme stand, too, 3 for £5.

    Lol, your Tesco must be fancier than mine, N - I can just about get an suspiciously pallid ring doughnut from the bakery in ours. If I get there early.

    argh! you just made me aware we don't have such shops either! I can get them at several shops, but one with nothing but donuts? just several different preparations? wow.
    I know 3: pure, filled with vanilla cream or frosting (splinters? sorry, not what you learn at school) outside.
    Are there more?

    eta: just saw Nevada's post - nope, never seen jam filled with chocolate outside, and w/o it would be called a "Berliner", I guess. Otherwise, more unknown words.

    There used to be a doughnut shop in Leeds called Dunkin Donuts, no idea if it's still there.

    _DD_ if you're talking about these:

    in English they're called sprinkles (or rainbow sprinkles for the multi-coloured ones)

    ha! Thanks, JJ!
    just that the donut was chocolate-covered, and the sprinkles white, probably something with sugar.
    don't think I have seen such a pink one... what is it??

    I think it's just a normal ring doughnut with pink icing (think Americans call it frosting. Zuckerguss??)

    Now you've done it, you've reminded me about Krispy Kreme. I live in a part of the US where there's a Dunkin Donuts every couple of miles, there's 3 in my little town alone. But the closest Krispy Kreme is over 80 miles away. Store-bought Krispy Kremes just don't cut it, you have to go to one of their outlets where they fry them behind glass in full view of their drooling patrons. Then they box them for you as the donuts emerge from the "glaze curtain". All hot and gooey, they never make it all the way home. I feel a quest to Connecticut coming.

    We do not generally distinguish the different types, they're all "donuts" (the older "doughnuts" has fallen out of style). Hole, No Hole, Yeast Batter, Cake Batter, yup, Donuts. Yes, I would call the filled ones "Berliners", filled with Raspberry, Grape, or Blueberry Jelly. Non-traditional fillings include "Cookie Dough" and "Brownie Batter" (yum). Also can be filled with a cream or pudding (lemon is my favorite). The best is a "Boston Crème", it's a donut, it's got chocolate frosting, and it's filled with vanilla cream. It's 3 food groups in each bite. A well rounded breakfast

    We do get a little crazy with the icing and sprinkles. Often holiday themed. Pink icing with sugar hearts for Valentine's Day, Chocolate with Orange sprinkles for Halloween, White frosting with Red and Blue sprinkles for the 4th of July. We even have "Sports themed" ones with icing and sprinkles colored to match the team's uniform colors.

    Time to gas up the truck and head to the coast....

    Zuckerguss sure is right (thanks again! ) I just expect it would taste different(ly) than chocolate (which is the one and only icing/frosting for a donut for me), and was asking what it would taste like, which "fruit" is it, or what

    any idea? or is it really just colo(u)red sugar? but if so, how / colo(u)red with what; does it taste like something except sweet? (i think I must ask Charlie the same, lol)
