Who knew donuts from Donut King would be a hit Mother’s Day treat? The line extended past Times. Now open in Kailua Line kept going past Times
It’s the day after National Donut Day, and I’m one day late celebrating. But when you know someone selling Krispy Kreme as a fundraiser, you end up with this. Don’t mind the missing donut(s).
Here I thought the cronut fad was dying down then I saw that Safeway still sold their renamed Croissant Donut. On top of that, Jack in the Box sells their Croissant Donuts which are supposedly good but messy.
