Powdered Donuts Send Me Straight Back To the ’90s

My life goes in cyclical obsessions.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say my obsessions are the ending of my regular everyday banal life, but they are added on top of everything else I have to do in a day’s work.

Watching Dexter non-stop.

Reading every Twilight book back-to-back.


Playing Tropico.

Right now, it’s those tiny pop-one-in-your-mouth-and-watch-them-appear-on-your-thighs powdered donuts. Call them what you will, poppers, gems, mini donuts, Sweet Sweet Baby Jeebus’s special gift to processed foods, but mama loves all 230 calories three of those babies pack in their donuty goodness.

Am I the only one who can’t say or write “powdered donut” without thinking of Powdered Toast Man? He and Log were my favorite Ren & Stimpy characters, just like Ace & Gary are my favorites today.

I’m kind of getting an epiphany. Maybe I like the powdered donuts because they make me think of Powdered Toast Man, Ren & Stimpy, and my free-wheelin’ teens and early 20s. Life was easier back then. 80 pounds lighter, no kids for which to devote my being, no bills beyond my Arial Mobile account and the $500 limit on my credit card. My car payment was under $200 and getting paid $8.50/hour was BIG MONEY.

The good old days were back in the ’90s. Chris Kirkpatrick had white boy dreads, I had the whole weekend of MTV’s Spring Break on my VHS tapes, and I had that nervous feeling of embarrassment to buy condoms from my ex-boyfriend’s dad at Kmart.

Back in the day, I could eat 3 whole mini powdered donuts and not think twice about it. Instead, I have to eat them one at a time and space them out through my day so I can pretend that I’ve worked off the last donut before I eat the next.

And now I want me a donut.

Wanna take a guess on how many mini powdered donuts I’ve eaten for the duration of writing this post?

Powdered donuts dunked in milk. Love ’em. They remind me of time spent with gramma, trying to get just the right amount of soak so they were dripping with milk but not falling apart back into the mug.

Now I want a donut.

Oh, I love those donuts. They are one of the reasons swearing off processed foods seems ridiculous. We went ahead and introduced them to our kids at an early age — just to keep the tradition going.

I went to Goodwill and the only thing I bought was the “Baby One More Time” CD…I miss the 90s.

I ate an entire bag of those donuts like last month…I got them to share with my family, but no one wanted any…couldnt let them go to waste. Annndd now Im starving.

As of this date the “cricut cartridge” and
“cricut” are the first and second most searched, followed
by yarn and then fabric then beads. it may be to make one more sale per day or week, and all I need to do is review where the success
was achieved and amplify this to achieve more success.
Cleaning and Painting is the least expensive way to update the look of your business.
