  1. I recently had a raspberry filled glazed from Krispy Kreme and it was great! I would be surprised if there wasn't one close to you.

        YES!!! Bob's in the Farmers Market is my favorite Jelly!

      2. Lemon Filled | Blueberry Filled | Strawberry Jelly | Sugar Jelly | Chocolate Jelly | Coconut Jelly are all at Stan's in Westwood Village

          Let us not forget PB&J at Stan's.

          It's the reason the Starimaster was invented. And remains necessary.

        2. Back in the day, the Helms Bakery man had the best, freshest, most kick ass jelly doughnuts!!

          Besides the delicious glaze on the outside, the best thing about them was the huge amount of jelly they filled them with.

          From what I recall, you couldn't take a bite without biting into jelly, whereas with many jelly doughnuts today, it's usually like "find the jelly".

            1. Look, I love me some Stan's just as much as anyone else on this board., and the donuts at Bob's Farmer's Market are quite good...

              But for Pete's sake, people, the OP is in SEAL BEACH! Can we get a little closer geographically?!

              (and as much as I want to recommend my fave, Glendora is maybe too much of a schlep from Leisure World)

                Can't keep the 16.4 in the garage all the time. Has to stretch its legs.

                And, by the way, Donut Man does not make good jelly donuts. But if one does make the trek to DM, try the pumpkin donuts.

                  ... which is why I didn't recommend it.

                  The geniuses say the mytzlplxintaor on the 16.4 has seen its last days, and will need replacing. Eeking by with the 959 these days.

                  3. Bob's in the Original Farmer's Market, with powdered sugar, not granulated. They have both.
