Britt's Donuts: Now You Can Read About 'Em, While You're Eating 'Em

From the March 30, 2014,  Wilmington (NC) Star-News "Book pays tribute to sweet local obsession" by Ben Steelman.

Review of the new book "Britt;s Donuts: Forever Sweet" by Daniel Ray Norris and Halyn Prusa, published by SlapDash Publishing in Carolina Beach, NC, $19.95.

This is the story of one of my all-time favorite places to go for donuts (never let the Britt's folks catch you spelling it doughnuts.  That would be like going to the Cozy Dog in Springfield, Illinois, and ordering a corn dog.  You will be corrected.

And, a sure sign of Spring has arrived, Britt's officially opened for business on Carolina Beach's world-famous boardwalk this past Friday.  My cousin Cathy and her daughter, who attends UNC-W, were among those first-dayers.

Britt;s has been a family favorite of ours ever since I was a young tyke back in the early 1950s.  No trip to the Carolina Beach is complete without a ride on the bumper cars (no longer there, sadly), snowcones, Britt's Donuts and the next-door shooting gallery.
