So elusive is my favorite donut that, when I Googled it, I couldn’t even find a photograph of it. I’m speaking, of course, of the Vanilla Kreme donut. It’s identical to its sister, the Chocolate Kreme (pictured above) except for its sugar-high-inducing vanilla filling.
This weekend when traveling to visit friends and family in MA and VT I was lucky enough to snag a couple of Vanilla Kremes at a MA gas station. As I inhaled my favorite sugary treat I reminisced about the times when these beauties weren’t so difficult to find. Why is it that Vanilla Kremes seem to have vanished from all CT Dunkin Donut locations?
I remember distinctly when I first discovered that Vanilla Kremes had not disappeared entirely. I was in Daytona, FL for Nationals with my dance team when we stopped to fuel up at a Dunkin Donuts. Lo and behold, there they were. I had to fight the urge to stock up on a few dozen of the donut I missed so dearly at home. Since then, I’ve found the donut in NJ, MA, NY and VT, so why not CT?
I decided it was time for action. That is why this morning I sat down and composed the following letter to Dunkin Donuts.
To Whom It May Concern,
Let me start off by saying that I am a long time customer of Dunkin Donuts. When I was younger, I’d make weekly trips with my dad for my two favorite donuts. Now I’m 20 and even though I am not a coffee drinker, I make regular visits to DD to purchase your sugary treats.
For the longest time my regular order was one Vanilla Kreme and one Chocolate frosted with Rainbow Sprinkles.
Imagine my dismay when I discovered that Vanilla Kreme donuts were discontinued at my regular DD location!
I began a quest, searching for my favorite donut and I’ve made a troubling discovery. Why is it that in every other state besides Connecticut I seem to have no trouble locating my favorite donut?
When traveling out-of-state, I now make a point to visit a DD and indulge in the elusive Vanilla Kreme.
Please, please, bring back the Vanilla Kreme to CT!
I’m not sure how long it’ll take a letter submitted via the online website to reach the big guns who can make some changes, but hopefully by the time I’m living in CT next the Vanilla Kreme will have returned to CT shelves.
If anyone has spotted the Vanilla Kreme, do leave a comment as to it’s whereabouts. My sweet tooth would greatly appreciate it!
