Creative Loafing names Carolina Foods’ honey buns a “signature” smell

“If you’re driving past the corner of Tryon Street and East Boulevard with your windows down, the smell hits you as hard as a bucket of Krispy Kreme donut glaze. Don’t be confused though; it’s not some ancient odor left behind from the long-gone Krispy Kreme doughnut store front that once hawked the sweet treats nearby. It’s Carolina Foods, which manufactures its own brand of Duchess doughnuts, coffee cakes, Dunkin Sticks and more. It’s been in operation since the 1930s, when it opened under the direction of Vernon Scarborough. The same family owns the business today.”
