I am an actual coffee snob. Americans. Butt out.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Are you a snob?
I'm a snob when it comes to horror movies. Actually, movies in general but especially the horror genre. So tired of all this jump scare trash featuring the stereotypical creepy child. Wow... you startled me in a theater by blasting sound at the highest level and throwing a pale face up on the screen. I get the same reaction when my wife sneaks up on me when im on the computer. Whatever happened to that sense of building dread that actually makes me creeped out? Or even some good ole campy horror evil dead style. Bleh.

I don't think I have access to those. I tried the grocery store variery, but they were gross. People say Krispy Kreme is good, but the one I tried from the grocery store was so bad that I just don't feel too motivated to find a good one through trial and error.

I remember when I was first introduced to Krispy Kreme. UGH! Just UGH! When I lived in SC you would have thought that Krispy Kreme donuts were simply the best things on earth. They were nearly a requirement at any business meeting. When I have eaten one I could feel the oil coating the inside of my mouth. Rainbow Vomit

When we moved to TX we were surprised that there is a mom and pop donut place on pretty much every other block. Some of those have really good donuts. Much better than Krispy Kreme even on their worst day.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Trying to cope with the idea that a grown adult, someone who's related to me no less, believes that ghosts are a legitimate excuse for a baby doing baby things. Ugh...

Never give a sucker an even break.

Oh Banjo, my brain immediately heard W C Fields say that line.Tongue

Speaking of which, Fields really did hate children. I guess you could call him a child snob.

My husband is from South Carolina and when he took be back to meet his family for the first time (we met when I was living in California) all he could talk about, besides Myrtle Beach and Shag dancing, was Krispy Kreme donuts. So we went to the original Krispy Kreme donut place and I had a donut. It was ok but I honestly couldn't tell the difference between that and Dunkin Donuts or the donuts one buys at the supermarket bakery section. It was much ado about nothing. I'm not a super taster like some people are though. I think my taste buds are lacking.

RE: Are you a snob?
To certain people I'm a beer snob. But I don't take it anywhere NEAR as far as some of my friends. If I arrive at a function of some kind and the best they have is Sam Adams - I will happily drink it even though I would generally choose something a few notches up the ladder. I drink a Budweiser once a year on the 4th of July and never enjoy it, lol.

Remember W C F's "Bung hole method" for raising children.
"Up to the age of 10 keep them in a barrel and feed them though the bung hole. On their 10th birthday drive in the bung."

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Do you live in an apple-growing region?

Otherwise, some bakeries make their own doughnuts - some good, some not.

No, I don't live in an apple growing region. I'm in orange country. Oh well. I can wait for donuts. My first experience didn't exactly light a fire under my ass to try more any time soon.

I think Krispy Kreme has changed their formula over the years. I'm still mad that they discontinued their "tart donut" which back in the 70s was a glazed donut with chocolate frosting, a tower of cream, and a cherry. One of my relatively few positive memories about my family growing up is going home from evening service on Sundays, and if we kids had behaved, we would stop by the Krispy Kreme, get tarts for everybody, and then go home and eat them in my parents' bedroom, while watching Masterpiece Theater or the Sunday Mystery Movie.

Krispy Kreme came to Massachusetts a while back with a great splash but were run out by Dunkin' Donuts with no difficulty at all. KK donuts tasted too different (worse than I remembered) and if you went to KK, all that was on offer was donuts, while at Dunkin you can also get bagels and breakfast sandwiches.

Out of curiosity I recently tried some "artisanal" donuts from a bakery featured on Food Network that charges $4-5 for a single donut. The donuts tasted fine, but not better than Dunkins.
