Did I miss the memo on Winchells? I don't like Dunkins, and haven't been to a Krispies in several years even though i think they're great but I do eat donuts fairly regularly(about 10 times a year) mainly Winchells Apple fritters, yet nobody mentioned a chain like Winchells so I'm guessing they screwed up somewhere. Botulism? [Snip - luv4u] Once owed by Jerry Farewell? What?

^^ Winchells got bought by Yum Yum Donuts in 2004. Many old Winchells shops have been taken over by independents, but some have stayed open under the Winchells name. I just read they still have 170 shops in 6 states, not bad, although it seems like there used to be 170 Winchells shops in walking distance of my house!

.

I like to support the local businesses, not a huge fan of Dunkins or KK. Both sweeter than they need to be. There's a donut shop every few blocks around LA, most owned by Asians, and most of them are good. Yum Yum isn't bad as chains go - generally a little better than Winchells IMO.

I will say that Dunkin has pretty good breakfast sandwiches. I'll seek it out at the airport, it's decent and affordable.

Didn't know that. I guess the one I frequent is still an original Winchells. It's so squeaky clean when I go in and there are always plenty of donuts and they are good to me so I guess I really don't venture out much. Never been to Yum Yum Donuts, maybe I'll try them and see if they're better.
