Oh, it's on now

"Dunkin' Donuts is going after Krispy Kreme, right in its hometown of Winston-Salem," says the Associated Press.

"Franchise operators for Dunkin' Donuts plan more than a dozen stores in Forsyth and Davie counties over the next four years. ...

"But the nation's largest coffee-and-doughnut franchise, Massachusetts-based Dunkin' Donuts, plans to challenge the hometown favorite.

"Sunny Patel plans five Dunkin' Donuts stores in northern Forsyth County. Sundeep Makhani told the Winston-Salem Journal he plans eight more stores in the area.

"Krispy Kreme spokesman Brian Little wouldn't talk about Dunkin' Donuts, but did say Krispy Kreme thinks there's room for everyone. ..."

Not in my household.

I will agree that DD has better coffee. But that is it. It is even blasphemy to think so ;)

Now, I have to say that Krispy Kreme off of the belt thing, nice and hot is definitely good, but I grew up with Dunkin Donuts, and they are still my fave. Although, I don't discriminate against any donut....but I would probably choose Dunkin over Krispy if I was faced with a life and death decision. It's a northern thing!!

Donuts are one of my biggest weaknesses, and I've never met one I didn't like, but I have to go with KK without a doubt. (I agree that DD has better coffee - that's actually what we brew at home.) However, I have always been disappointed that there is only one KK is all of Raleigh and DDs are everywhere!! So occasionally DD does get my business. But my heart belongs to KK...

It really is a North-South issue.
