Britt's Donuts – Forever Sweet
Not many businesses can claim the popularity and longevity of Britt's Donuts. This Carolina Beach institution began 75 years ago, and folks there still make their donuts in nearly the same way they were made when first pulled out of a hot cooker. This new book traces the eatery's humble origins and growth of this family business in a whimsical and informative way. Authors Daniel Ray Norris and Halyn Prusa sweetly and whimsically sprinkle interviews with past and present employees and behind-the-scenes donut secrets with colorful glazed donot images and vintage photographs of the beach's boardwalk, bathing beauties and other fun scenes. Chapter titles in "Britt's Donuts — Forever Sweet" include "Bobby and Maxine" (the owners), "The humble torus," "It starts with flour," "In the beginning," and "Donuts are like people." Published by SlapDash Publishing in Carolina Beach, hardcover, 136 pages, $19.95.
