I just returned from manhattan and had an opportunity to go the donut plant in the Chelsea hotel. This placed rocked and there were lots of tourists snapping photos and eating doughnuts. I was thinking back to BCE ( before cupcake era) and wondering if doughnuts could be next. Your thoughts and memories greatly appreciated.

      Before the cupcake era, there was the Krispy Kreme doughnut era. History does tend to repeat itself. :)
