Power Rings and Coffee

Those aren't donuts.

Those are power rings.

This is how I started my day.

I don't even know where I can get that brand of stickin' power rings here. And to think that I worked next door to one for over a year (at Devon and Western). You never know what you had until it's gone.

Mmmmm. Give me one. Wait, they're full of fat, I better not.

Mob said...

Holy crap, those chocolate ones look as though they've been varnished and polished to a bright sheen.

Bubs said...

mob, you're right. We had to have them shined for inspection.

Dr MVM, you're right. I'll eat like that if I'm going to run, or spend the day doing DT training or something that requires a lot of fuel. I think that, for instance, if you're on Weight Watchers that one DD donut uses up something like a third of your allotted points for one day. Even worse are the "reduced fat" bagels from Panera--those are loaded with fat, and worth nearly half your allotted points for the day.

Mathman, you're probably limited to Krispy Kreme? The problem with Dunkin Donuts is that they don't bake them on-premise anymore. Now they're trucked in from a central bakery, and some shops have way fresher (or more stale) donuts than others.

I put a lot of thought into this.

Dunkin Donuts trucks them in? What's happened to America??

DCup said...

The Dancer and I drove around last weekend looking for a Dunkin Donuts. We were dying for a couple of maple frosteds.

I realize, MathMan, that there is one on HWY 120 as I head into my office. Now I just need to go to the office once in a while....

Mmmmm, thanks, Bub! for the visual.

Beth said...

You're so Belushi.

Bubs said...

Beth, yes, without the talent, fame or raging drug abuse.

D-Cup, you're welcome. Glad you found a DD. Hopefully they're fresh.

Mn, maybe that's just a thing in larger markets like Chicago. I remember it was about 20-25 years ago that they switched over to trucking in their fatbombs from central bakeries.

I just lick lard out of a tin can, Mmmmmmm.

Bubs, you may be right that the whole donut is 1/3 of your daily allotment of points, but only one bite is 2 points in my estimation.

PS r u going to the Birthday party this weekend?

They extend the doughnuts in their hands and the food collides, sending powdered sugar and chocolate everywhere.

They are short hot little bursts of power, but power they are.

I miss donuts. The school makes fresh donuts for tea time a couple days a week, but they're not the same and there are no filled ones.

They actually have a line of bakery products here labeled "Dunkin Donuts" same pink and orange, same font, total trademark infringement. Asia is not big on copyright laws in general.

Just call me Krispy Kreme...

Jealousy has consumed me. I do have a nice cup of coffee in my hand right now though. Mmmmmm. Power rings.

Grant Miller said...

Looks like a party.

Splotchy said...

I just wish those power rings didn't have an unpleasant aftertaste.

Bubs, I know you aren't very fond of Springfield, but if you visit there again you need to check out Mel-O-Cream. Excellent power rings.
