A plain stick? Since when?

Since when has a nice French cruller become a plain stick? I ask you? Is nothing sacred? I had to go to Dunkin' Donuts while I was in Maine and I longed for a French cruller but all they had were plain sticks. Now, crullers are fluted, ring-shaped doughnuts made form pate choux and is usually in a ring but I grew up with the oblong version, so for me a cruller is always stick like.

However, it just doesn't taste the same, plain or glazed, when you call it a stick. I don't think that Dunkin' Donuts used pate choux but rather donut dough. Anyway, I wasn't not as happy with my coffee or my stick as I was with my cruller.

The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

I just want to go on record saying, that many pastry chefs I know use the dinky Cuisinart ice cream maker in their restaurant kitchens. So, though I'm glad I got a Lello by Muso, I'm also here to tell you that I have used the Cuisinart for many years with great results.
