Where Can I Get a %@**!! Cruller??

Postby evansvillehousewife » Tue Jan 15, 2008 12:58 pm

A genuine Cruller. The kind that are 6 inches long, are cakey (not that yeasty psuedo-Wonderbread shit that they glaze) and covered with lots of yummy glaze?

The closest thing I can find are those crappy Little Debbie dunkers that look like turds and are loaded with preservatives.

Real Crullers are eaten fresh (preferably warm) and will turn into a rock by the next day.

When Sentry's was alive, Crestwood Bakery made them. I got one every Saturday right before my Dad would take me to the park.
Now I have hit Copps, Woodmans, Lanes, etc and no deal. Everybody seems to eschew cake donuts for that yeasty stuff.

I know where you can get a good crueller, or even a kruller, but not a cruller.

Seriously though, good question.

Sassy. You can find a cruller here.

I'm sure I've seen them somewheres or another, but the last place I know I've seen them is at the gas station/convenience store at the Hwy 41/Cty Hwy 76 interchange in Oshkosh.

I dunno about six inches though; maybe, if you asked the cruller.

Fisticuffs- They made me seek professional mental health after I stalked and killed the last foron who pissed me off.

Sideshow bob- No. I have not tried Greenbush. However, in retrospect, they are the most logical place to start looking. Thank you.

For the record, I am not looking for the french cruller, although I do love those as well.

Speedway gas stations. Or at least the one on Monona Dr (used to be a SuperAmerica). I think they are from Grebe's bakery - if not anymore, they used to be.
But you got to get there early, 'cause those are the first to disappear from the case.

Have you tried Peoples bakery?

If that fails, ask a cop.

Those are exactly the ones I was talking about in my post.

And no, the Greenbush "crullers" are actually jelly-filled cake donuts. They're good, but not the same.

People's Bakery only makes the French variety. Awesome donuts, but not what you're looking for.

What's the name of that little bakery next to the Stop n' Go across from the golf course at the end of Speedway Drive? I think it has a french name, maybe they might have some.

I think that's Madeline's Patisserie on Speedway.

That's it, that's the place. Haven't been there but heard rave reviews. Don't know if they have cruellers, but I'm sure they have something or another that'll trip a taste bud orgasm.

Unless they've stopped carrying them, I always got decent krullers (sp?) at PDQs.

Was in the Sentry at Acewood and Cottage Grove Rd. tonight, they have Crestwood Bakery inside, and I saw the Grebe's crullers with my own eyes. Come on over to the east side.

They also have cake by the slice...mmmm, cake.

Take a ride out to The Pine Cone, they may have them. If not, at least buy a cream puff as big as your head.
