When I began seeing reviews comparing Britt's Donuts to Krispy Kreme, my response was "yeah, right." That is a bit like comparing a young high school slugger to Babe Ruth. There is the best and then there are the rest. So, my wife and I had to see for ourselves. The winner is...a split decision.
My wife actually likes Britt's better than Krispy. Now, I will say she is a chocolate glazed fan when it comes to Krispy and Britt's only makes hot, glazed. However, she also likes crullers (as do I) and the consistency of a Britt's donut has a crispy texture that is somewhat cruller-like. Let's just say neither of us let our share of the donuts get cold.
Personally, I still give the nod to a hot-off-the-line Krispy Kreme, but Britt's Donuts are excellent! It was nice to be able to walk the dog down the boardwalk and pick up a bag for breakfast one morning. They are great with milk or coffee. It is definitely one of the defining eateries at Carolina Beach. The crispy outside gives Britt's a unique taste and a well-deserved spot on the Mount Rushmore of Donuts.
