My friend and I took our sons to a MOMS Club outing at Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The shop had a display window so you could see doughnuts made in real time. First the doughnuts sat on long metal shelves that rotated in a circle while the dough rises. Once they had plumped up to the right size, the doughnuts were placed on a conveyor belt, which dumped them into a huge vat of hot oil that fried them to a satisfying crisp.
James and my friend’s son pressed their faces against the glass, in awe of the doughnut-making process. Then James’s friend pointed to the rotating shelves and said, “Look James, it’s a carnival ride for doughnuts!”
At least the doughnuts had some fun before they met their fates.
