My favorite donuts were always the maple bars with custard, oh how I loved them. I know that you know that I am not a sweet eater, but for some reason, every once in a while, I will eat a maple bar with custard.

As a child I was full of ooh's and ahh's over the whole process.

According to the Coloradoan, as of today, its official, the lease has been signed. Doug Patterson plans to remodel the location, home of the old Wok & Roll Restaurant that closed its doors last fall. Patterson is in talks with the city to expand the location to create a nearly 15-hundred square feet space for the new Dunkin' Donuts and Coffee Shop at 2801 South College Avenue. Plans are to be up and running by fall.
