Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Simon on September 03, 2015 - Report this comment
Put me back in the eighties and I'll be one happy camper. So many good times, great music, well ... fun music, great summers at The Shore, wine coolers, Hulk Hogan & Friends, Prime-Time Soaps like Dynasty, Dallas and the like, crazy hair, Miami Vice, cell phones as big as bricks and Dutch Mill Donuts in The Andy Warhall-Style boxes. By the way, whomever designed that box was a Enstien like smart and creative.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by MetzfanDavidWright on September 02, 2015 - Report this comment
Hello all my long lost friends! I think I set the record for longest absence. The last time this donut-nut was here was over 5 years ago! That's right, or should I say "Wright," it was April 7, 2010. I'd like to think I had a small hand in this pages becoming the biggest thing on the net since Pets.com. But I still miss the greatest donuts in the world. Can't believe how this little donut page has taken off. Actually, part of me can. This is a special donut and special fans.

Cheese Kisses, Comment by JIM on September 01, 2015 - Report this comment
Most everyone I've asked about these looks at me with a blank stare. SO happy to have found my fellow Cheese Kiss lovers out there. I grew up in Houston in the 70's; and these were pretty popular back then.
RED L cheese puffs, Comment by Michelle on September 01, 2015 - Report this comment
It's nice to know we aren't alone in this quest for long gone but never forgotten comfort treats! Many times as I'm unpacking Athens feozen apitizers for my family, that I can still smell and taste the goodness that were the Red L cheese puffs... I enjoyed other ones they made BUT hands down the price and taste of the cheese puffs were the all time #1
Maple Buds, Comment by Barr0691 on August 31, 2015 - Report this comment
I saw a pic of the Rowntree Maplebuds on a Facebook group of Winnipegers. I remembered them right away but I thought it was Resebuds, not Maplebuds....they were delicious. Maybe my memory is failing as I am a 60's child.

What a month with over 40 entries! Where's Doughboy 1917 when you need him... I'm sure he would have referenced "The Charge of The Light Brigade" or some other historical military comparison..... let's just hope we have better results. IT'S great to see this page of DONUT critiques swell it's ranks and make a statement. And Yes Little Buddy, we did make a great Whole Wheat donut that was even endorsed back in the 70's by some famous health nut....Dr. Fredericks something or other... Hope to hear from you Doughboy 1917, it's been awhile....thinking the "Mapes" are near the end of their stroll and hope to hear about the exursion. Hope all is WELL Green Mountain Boys, be good.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Jofa on August 30, 2015 - Report this comment
Anyone still have an old Dutch Mill box? I bet they're collector's items now. I think my record was five donuts in one sitting and more than a box in a day! They were fantastic donuts!
XLNT Tamales, Comment by David Crandon on August 30, 2015 - Report this comment
What a trip stumbling across this. I was best friends with Andy Morales as a kid. Son of Alex. I remember he had a sister, but I don't think she lived with them. It's funny that although I was Andy's best friend in the 1960's and live across the street, I knew nothing about how famous his father was in motoracing, nor did I know his father made some many of the mexican foods that I devoured while in college. Weird...anyone know where Andy is these days?

Got some in my kitchen cabinet right now. They sell them at the Shell station right across the road. They are in a pale pink wrapper. They still taste the same.
Velamints, Comment by Angie on August 30, 2015 - Report this comment
Sorbitol was originally marketed as a laxative. It isn't the only sugar substitute that will do the same thing. Also, sugar-free doesn't mean noncaloric but much better than the calories in a regular mint with sugar. If you gained 30 lbs in a year, I would have to say it wasn't the mints you were consuming. You would have to have eaten a ton of them each day and that would have resulted in a very "free" bowel. That would probably result in a 30 lb loss. Maybe you were eating a lot more than Velamints ;)
