DDs that bake in-house

Very interesting - http://www.boston.com/business/articl...

Which other stores besides the Weymouth store do this?

    I'm so lucky to live nearby. It's also torture too when you drive by and don't have time to stop in but you can smell the doughnuts frying.

    This is THE only place you should get your DD doughnuts. Nothing like biting into a crispy, fresh doughnut. Plus where else can you get bavarian creme filled munchins.

      This reminds me how disappointed I was when I finally made it to Twin Donuts in Allston at 4 a.m.... and found the shelves full of the previous day's donuts. (Maybe one kind was fresh and I screwed up and missed it? I don't remember at all. Since then I've stuck to egg sandwiches for my very occasional very-early-morning trips.)

        Even when the doughnuts are fresh, Twin Donuts is ghastly. I want so bad to like them, because it seems like the kind of place that SHOULD be awesome, but I've never had a doughnut from there that even approached good.

          <sigh> It's just hard when there are so few places to eat open at 4 a.m. on a weekday... and every so often one is up finishing one's income tax itemizing.

        "Baking" is a strange term for what they do.

          I remember as a kid when DD's actually all made their own.

            I've heard rumors that the one on Morrissey Boulevard near the Globe building makes its doughnuts on-site.
