"Hawaii’s first Dunkin’ Donuts shop in more than a decade will be near the Honolulu Airport as part of a development project that
includes an IHOP restaurant, a Shell gas station and an Aloha Island Mart convenience store."


"The company announced an agreement with Dunkin’ Brands in May to open as many as 15 of the donut and coffee shops statewide."

I have no idea how you guys have kept the faith so long, but HELP IS ON THE WAY!!!

Was greeted with a monumental meh...

They used to have Drunken Blownuts in Hawaii some years ago but it didn't last. Only Kreepy Kreme outlet is in Maui. Best donuts (locals prefer malasadas) are Leonard's, Kamehameha (home of the poi malasada) and Liliha bakeries.


And since you asked... we ain't getting one in Kwajalein, unless we can bribe the ATI flight crew to bring us some! We do have a bakery on island but there are days when there are no donuts or pastries because the barge is late.

Yeah, I read it. But my reading comprehension is not bad.

The thought of a state not having a single Dunkin Donut store is impossible for me to bear. That I cannot believe that caption to be true.

Or have you not tasted any?

It seems, PH, that you are of the side that do want Dunkin Donuts off Hawaii...

Is it even a CAP Wing if it's doughnut deficient?

Leonards Malasadas are far superior.

When I was a youth living in Virginia, many moons ago, my parents thought Krispy Kreme (KK) products were the greatest thing ever, and after we moved on to other places, would constantly compare the local donuts to KKs. Having been too young to recall what KKs were like, I always wondered what the big deal was. Finally, when I moved to Florida, in 1990, I got the opportunity to sample their wares. I found them wanting in many respects, and haven't eaten any since. We had a couple of KK stores here in San Diego, but they didn't last long. There are four stores left.

We have six Dunkin' Donuts stores local to me, three of them being on military bases. The Winchell's count is three. The local donut shops pretty much have the market cornered.

You haven't eaten a donut until you eat a fresh piping hot Krispy Kreme.  It melts in your moth and taste like a little cloud from Heaven...  Just sayin'.

Malasadas? I do not know...

Spanish being my first language, I read Malasada as the Spanish words mal asada.

Translating mal asada to English, it comes to badly roasted.    ;D

That makes me think. Bad preparation, missing ingredients, not fully cooked...

Edited to add:

I did not know what a Malasada was, so did a Wikipedia search for it. It says the name comes from the Portuguese, meaning under cooked!

 ;D ;D >:D

Oh, the article implies that a Malasada is just a sugar-coated donut...

HA!

So I think we've established empirically that the only thing more popular than a uniform thread is a donut thread!

Nope.

The order of popularity is:

1. Uniforms
2. Coffee
3. Donuts

I do uniforms for people in my squadron.

(grade, nametapes, wings, etc)

I tell people "Whatever you think is an appropriate amount, just throw a Dunkin's card in the pocket for that."

So to say "Will sew uniforms for coffee" is not a trick statement.

It was the Portuguese who brought Malasadas to Hawai'i.
