After 31 years in the United States, I find myself more American than I ever expected to be, yet not so American in many ways.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are doughnuts, corn dogs and a super-size coke.
American doughnuts are way too sweet for my palate. Now offer me pumpkin pie and you're talking!!
I was in the office in London yesterday, someone brought in a few boxes of dunkin donuts. We had a French consultant on site with us yesterday. I offered him one. He looked horrified. "We don't like doughnuts in France!" was all he said on the matter.
They do have beignets in France though and the ones I had had were very doughnut-like!
