A Destin donut deficit? Donut Hole, Krispy Kreme temporarily close

Matt Algarin
Donut Hole and Krispy Kreme in Destin are temporarily closed.

Destinites have seen their doughnut options dwindle as of late — at least for the next few weeks. As with tradition, the owners and staff at the Donut Hole are taking a little break, closing the beloved eatery until Dec. 20.

Down the road a few miles to the east, doughnut lovers won't be seeing the blinking "Hot Doughnuts Now" sign at Krispy Kreme until at least mid-January as the bakery is closed for renovation.

“That’s one way to help the winter weight gain — no dunts,” Angie Hilderbrand posted on The Destin Log’s Facebook page.

Other readers pointed out that the Publix bakery provides an “awesome” alternative. Those with a doughnut fix can also still cross the county line and hit the Dunkin Donuts in Miramar Beach, which opened its doors in August.
