Requiem for a Doughnut

August 18, 2007

It is now time for us all to hold our caps to our chests and sing “Taps” quietly to ourselves before a moment of deep silence.  A city-wide tragedy has occured.

 As of next week, Sister’s McMullen will no longer make doughnuts.

 Apparently, they somehow got it into their brains that people prefer homemade cupcakes over homemade donuts.  WRONG!  No one gives a damn about the oversized, oversweetened, sticky, tasteless sugar bombs they’ve been serving up there on Biltmore where the  tobacco shop used to be.   Those are gross, and doughnuts are delicious! It’s not rocket science, here!  What does a girl have to do to get a doughnut that wasn’t invented in a labratory!  See, now all I want is a doughnut, because I know I can’t have any.  This is how it works.  Calm down, GG.  Calm down.

Okay Asheville, let’s band together.  What can we do to keep this from happening??!!  I’m already making protest signs.  Should we all go there and buy doughnuts like crazy and tell them how much we hate their cupcakes and love their doughnuts?   Someone, just TELL ME WHAT TO DO!!!!

 I think this may be part of a larger decision to actually sell the business, but I’ll need to do a little more research to confirm that. 

I wrote this post at 6:30am.  Prime doughnut time.  This is crazy.

    not to pour sugar on your gaping wound or anything.

    cupcakes are just crappy little pieces of wannabe cake…but a donut–a really really good donut–is unsurpassed in the fired food catagory (except maybe for some really good sweet potato chips)

    Donuts are casualties of the cutsie cupcake trend. Just like second wave feminism. It’s a sad thing, it really is.

    yes it is. Especially considering doughnuts can be healthier–not that that is something I care about, really– when prepared with that in mind. All this doughnut talk has made me crave them, so tonight is doughnut night!
