I just had to share this picture from earlier today. Mary Ann, who I work with at the Scleroderma Foundation, brought in this ginormous chocolate glazed donut with jimmies today from Honey Dew Donuts. The donut was surprisingly fluffy and light. The chocolate glaze was yummy. I could only eat a little sliver, but it was a sliver of pure delight.

Jumbo Donut from Honey Dew DonutHoney Dew Donuts is a local Massachusetts company that started in 1973. Now, there are more than 140 HDDs throughout New England. A new one opened just recently on Rt. 114 in Danvers near the Foundation’s office. I have yet to go but after seeing this donut – the size of a hubcap – I think I might have to venture in!

Take that Dunkin Donuts. You don’t have this behemoth on your menu! This is something that would make even Homer Simpson drool. Mmm, donut…

Photo Peek: Chinatown Dunkin’ Donuts

There’s this phenomenon in Boston and all of New England. People love them some Dunkin’ Donuts. I’m not just talking the early morning cup ‘o joe kind of love. This is a full-blown passion for all things Dunkin’ Donuts. There are DDs next to DDs – like in the case across the street from my apartment. Because a standard standalone shop just wasn’t enough, they needed to put a drive-thru right next door. On my drive to work in the morning, about 4 to 5 miles, I pass at least five shops that are always busy. You can find them in the Walmarts, the Stop ‘N Shops, the malls. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!

But the coolest Dunkin’ Donuts of all that I have seen is in Chinatown. Located on Essex Street, this location actually has the signage in Chinese characters.
