[HOU] A mystery about Shipleys on Ella

I understand getting doughnuts or kolaches for breakfast, or for the late night munchies, but what is up with the long lines at 5pm? Sometimes it is so bad that Ella gets backed up. Anyone have a clue what they are selling at dinner time? Or is there a new wave of doughnuts for dinner?

  1. Danhole,

    I did a quick search or B-4-U Eat.....this might explain some of the problem below:

    great place to pick up donuts on the go. it's really popular among high school students who come early for some school events and bring shipley's along with them, and the usual place to get donuts on the weekends for the people who live in the area.

    Perhaps the HS students are crowding the place after school...just a thought....either that or they have "candy meth" in the fruit filled ones...j/k

      Yeah, I'm thinking the "candy meth" is the ticket, myself! One of these days I'm going to get in line and find out what this is about!
