Well, it follows.

1. The Portuguese develop the Malasadas.
2. The Portuguese travel to Hawaii.
3. The Portuguese work, play, and eat.
4. The Portuguese let everyone else on a state secret: the Malasadas!
5. The Malasadas fight a civil war, since they are donuts anyways, with Krispy Kreme and Donkin Donuts.
6. The Malasadas win the Civil War!

Just so you know, y'all, individually, and collectively, can have my entire worldwide share of KK products, in perpetuity. Divide them up as appropriate.  8)

The local donut shops pretty much have the market cornered.

As they should. No matter what part of the country. Regional preferences are important. The Applebeeization and McDonaldsizing of America takes away from the novelty of regional specialties.

Although SuckDonald's in Hay-waii and Goo-am (misspelling intentional ;) ) does offer regional specialties not available anywhere else: their Local Deluxe breakfast (steamed rice, scrambled eggs, Portuguese sausage and Spam), Spam Egg McMuffin and McSaimin (doesn't come close to real saimin), along with the occasional taro and coconut pies. Booger Kink has a similar local kine menu. (Not on Kwaj - the Booger Kink there does nt do breakfast.)

Spam? Whyaaaat?  someone called me?

I'm currently in Europe for some DoD rotary wing DVE testing (fog, snow, and ice degraded visual environment), and they are serving the engineers and pilots these wonderful German doughnuts called "Krapfen", filled with like 9 kinds of fruit filling. YUM. Apparently they're a traditional part of the annual Fasching lent festival (Karneval - this week until next Tuesday, which is fat Tuesday).  If we eat any more, we'll have to redo all our weight and balance calcs.

Punch "faschingskrapfen" into google, and look at the images. Wow.

Hagebuttenkrapfen
 Zwetschgenkrapfen
 Eierlikörkrapfen
 Schokoladen-Nougatkrapfen
 Himbeerkrapfen
 Cappuccinokrapfen
 Champagnerkrapfen
The list goes on...



Very Respectfully,
Spam

You may like them, but to me a donut is that sugared confection with a hole in the middle. Anything filled with jelly or other stuff, is not a donut.

And you are making me hungrier, dear sir! I had no breakfast or lunch and it is 12:38 EST.

Anywhere you find a sizable Polish-American community, there's always paczki (punch-ski), which are essentially jelly donuts served until Mardi Gras.

Its dark here - after seven thirty at night - and I'm going to miss my Squadrons PT night tonight, which I could use very much right now thanks to all the German doughnuts at the beginning of the day and the German beers at the end of the day. I think I'd have trouble making the FIRST mile tonight (GA045 typically runs a three mile PT).

Auf Wiedersehen, Kameraden!

Having grown up in Detroit, pączki was always a peripheral thing to the non-Polish kid (like pierogi, or gołąbki)

Then I became an adult, and realized "Whoa, this ain't no ordinary bismark!"

I miss me some pączki.  Really

Ha HA!  So, I'm back CONUS, and apparently lost 12 pounds while TDY. Take that, science! Hard work, beer and doughnuts triumph again. Well, probably the hard work, and the hotel workout rooms.

(If you count Air France losing my luggage, I lost 62 lbs).

Cheers
