Alpha Donuts - Change in...something???

yea, i had seen that. the post seemed to imply that Alpha was doing that all along, which isn't the case for those of us who have been eating there for years.

it might certainly be something new, as there were different people behind the counter the last couple of times, but i'd love to find out more info.

Alpha Donuts - Change in...something???

I've been a neighborhood resident for a dozen years, and frequented Alpha Donuts at least a couple times a month.

I've enjoyed their donuts thoroughly, and have long felt they were the best they ever tasted. I've had friends come into town, and i turned them on to the goodness that was Alpha, and every time they come back, they demand to go.

Alpha has been that damned good.

Earlier this week, a friend came into town, went to Alpha, and remarked that it wasn't as good as she'd remembered. i told her that it must have just been an off batch or something.

So tonight, we went back. And sadly, the same thing.

there is something VERY different about the donuts. the glazed tasted like they came from the grocery store. the coconut wasn't...cakey....things just seemed very wrong.

has anyone else had this experience recently?
