:lol: Haha!

Once every blue moon, I make "donuts" from packaged buttermilk biscuits and I only make 1 or 2 at a time, dust them with cinnamon and sugar then freeze rest of the biscuits in case I get tempted to make more.

Haha! that's so true. So hard to eat just one.

I've never liked donuts, even as a kid. Give me a box of pastries from an authentic French bakery, though, and I'm off to the races...

One of the things I am forever grateful for is that I hate donuts. :lol:

People are always so surprised: "WHAT YOU DON'T LIKE DONUTS???" Yes, it's possible!

Hahaha, so funny, I don't really like them either!

But that comic was cute, and could certainly apply to mannnny other foods. Hahaha.

Haha that happened to me three weeks ago - I brought in munchkins for my office on a whim and ended up eating about 12 of them myself!!!!

To be honest I don't actually like donuts all that much either . . . unless they're right in front of me, because one will lead to another and another and another . . . :dizzy:

But sugar is my trigger. If I don't buy them, I'm fine, and I've conditioned myself to not even think about them (and other sweets) when I'm at the store. :)

I live RIGHT by a krispy kreme, I went a long time without having ever gone to it. Then, it suddenly became my binge of choice! Ugh, donuts

the achilles heel for me . As you would suspect from my name. I would even make them if I didn't want to venture outdoors to Dunkin Donuts'. I haven't had a good donut in months now, since December . My husband caught **** from me when he brought home a dozen then and I did partake of 2.. non filled though. He hasn't brought any since but... I have smelled it on him, a couple of times when he came home from work, LOL! He's cheating on me!! LOL! I don't begrudge him though. He somtimes has long drives and stops for doughnuts and coffee to stay alert. Besides he doesn't need to lose any weight at all, and He is supporting me by not bringing any home. I must've been too rough on him, because it was the holiday season and there were so many temptaions around. Sometimes, a well meaning client will bring them in and well I can't complain about it. temptation is evrywhere.

Best laugh of the day!! :lol::D

So funny! I go through phases. Sometimes people bring them to work as a nice surprise. I try to stay away the best I can. Just one is hard for me.:sunny:

I love donuts! So glad I don't live near any donut shop! The few times I have gone to krispy kreme was to get a dozen and take to someone else's house so wasn't tempted to eat more than one and ALWAYS leave them! I wouldn never be able to eat a whole dozen, ick....would make me sick.

So funny!

Donuts are yummy. And I have such a sweet tooth. But as long as I stay away from them I don't crave them. But all those calories in a whole dozen, eesh.

I was raised in the hometown of Krispy Kreme. My daddy used to pan toast me a glazed doughnut every morning for breakfast! I know they are a weakness and try to stay far away from the 'Hot Now' signs.

This is sooo odd, cause today my hubby bought some pastries while shopping today. I gave him the ole stink eye for that. I told him, "They are yours & yours alone. If they even get near me, I'll beat you!" (Not really beat him, but I wanted to!!!)
Donuts aren't really my favorite. Their cousin the maple bar is!!! I've loved them since I was a child. They were my reward if I was good when I when grocery shopping with Mom. Know the ad for Klondike Bar? For me, it's what will you do for a maple bar? Sing, dance, almost sell my soul. Gimme a maple bar!!! (only a virtual one please...they are not for me right now, K?)

I think that the donuts call my name. We have a few reps that will bring in donuts and other yummy treats to the office, and I try to put them as far away as possible, but I can hear them calling to me from the kitchen!!!

02-19-2013, 06:03 PM
Loved this thread!!

And donut holes have no calories right?? (kidding!)

I could eat 6 of the donut holes without even thinking about it. Powdered, jelly, chocolate glazed, cinnamon, YUM. The only ones that never tempted me were the coconut.

I know this is an old thread, but...

I "have" bought a whole dozen and done exactly that - eaten the whole thing - by myself.

Seriously, I don't know how I didn't weigh more than I did. I must have always been fairly active despite my terrible, terrible eating!

Nice sweet joke. Need Donuts and pastries and munch-kins :P
