The Donut Battle heats up.
Well, the latest on Bess Eaton's: first Dunkin Donut's wants to get into the bidding, then Honey Dew Donuts is mulling a bid. Updates here.

Honey Dew might be a good candidate for expansion, There's a smidgen of overlap with Bess Eaton but a lot of new areas for them in CT and south RI. Dunkin's... they're only in the bidding to try and keep Tim Horton's out. There are far too many Dunkin's and Bess Eaton's close to each other, they'd get maybe 15-20 truly new locations out of the 48 Bess Eaton stores. I think they're just scare to death of Horton's coming into the area, and the slow march northward of Krispy Kreme...

Honey Dew would be good to have ... I tried them once in Rhode Island and they have a very good product. Only problem is, DD has more cash to throw around, so they would seem like the likely winner. I guess we'll have to wait and see how the game plays out.

I've seen durian cream doughnuts in various bakeries here, although I haven't recognized any doughnut chains. I'm not sure there's even a Dunkin Donuts, but you can probably get something doughnutty at the McCafé.
