Long Beach, CA - The giant Angel Food donut on 7th Street in Long Beach is threatened to be rolled on to oblivion. A franchise Dunkin' Donuts is requesting approval from the Long Beach Planning Commission to demolish the building and remove the donut. Strange how a reuse of the giant donut is not in the current plans. Information on how to help save the donut can be found at this Los Angeles Conservancy action alert.
UPDATE: Save the Donut advocates appear to have won this battle. A Dunkin' Donuts franchisee representative stated "the last thing we want to do is be viewed as the guys that killed the doughnut" at an appearance at the city planning commission on February 6, 2014.
