Carolina Beach's Britt's Donuts receives honor

A favorite vacation spot for Carolinians and others along the East Coast, Carolina Beach is known for its warm and friendly atmosphere, and now, local doughnut shop, Britt's Donuts is getting recognition for the tasty treat that has won over the hearts and taste buds of countless locals and visitors to the area. According to MSN City Guide, the nearly 70 year old business can now claim that it sells the second best doughnut in the nation.

The recent honor for Britt's stems from an article by Bret Statka on, entitled, "America's Best Doughnuts." After an incredible response online and through message boards, Statka released a second list of, "the best independent, small-town doughnut shops in the nation." According to that article the sole brand of doughnut at Britt's doesn't deter it's faithful customers. According to Statka's article, "...the limited selection doesn't seem to detour the flocks of beachgoers who'd sooner bear a second-degree sunburn and bathing suit full of North Carolina blue crabs than eat at Krispy Kreme."
