Let the comfort eating begin - anew. After a five-year, sugar-shock absence, Krispy Kreme made an enthusiastically received (though not from dieters and organized labor) return to Philadelphia last week. Hours before the doors to the new doughnut shop in Fox Chase were unlocked Tuesday morning, carb-craving customers were lined up outside - one since 3:30 the previous afternoon. For such devotees of the chain's signature hot Original Glazed and other caloric confections, Krispy Kreme's abrupt departure from the region in December 2005 meant some mighty rough years of withdrawal.

For a few months, the buzz in Lincoln Plaza has been about the coming of a doughnut maker, the one known for its Hot Original Glazed treats. "Their eyes light up when Krispy Kreme is mentioned," Mark Doroshenko, manager of the A.C. Moore arts and crafts store, said of his staff. "They can't wait.

Glazed heavenlies! Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corp., a hole in the local doughnut market, says it will reenter the Philadelphia area with 21 new stores in the next seven years. The stores could employ 300 people. "Our dream is to have 40 to 50 stores," Keith Morgan, the new exclusive franchise-rights holder for the Philadelphia market, said Tuesday. "The brand is a survivor, and this is a good fit. " The last Krispy Kreme store in the Philadelphia area switched off the doughnut machine several years ago when the Winston-Salem, N.C. company was involved in a federal accounting probe and other financial trouble.

When the red neon "Hot Doughnuts Now" light glows in the window of a Krispy Kreme store, it has a double meaning. When the light is on, between 5 and 11 every morning and every evening, Krispy Kreme devotees drive out of their way to get one - or, more likely, a dozen - of the warm, freshly glazed doughnuts. In contrast to most bakeries, customers there stand in line for five minutes or more next to a glass wall, watching doughnuts being made at a rate of more than 2,600 an hour.

My friends in Brigantine have been teasing me lately. They think I ought to get a hobby. It's all because Christmas came early for me this year, in the form of a doughnut factory/store opening only 13 miles from home. As a result, my world for the last couple of weeks has revolved around Krispy Kreme. I've made share-the-joy doughnut deliveries to friends; I've rushed to have photographs developed so that I can send pictures of opening day to my family in North Carolina. I've offered samples to fellow shoppers in a mall parking lot. ("Please!

Mmm, doughnuts, as Homer Simpson says. Mmm, free doughnuts - even better. Today's National Donut Day - who knew? - and a couple of national chains are celebrating with handouts. No purchase is necessary to get a glazed at Krispy Kreme locations, including the two in the Philadelphia area: 41 S. 16th St., across from Liberty Place, and 7855 Oxford Ave. in the city's Fox Chase section. (Collingswood and Bensalem outlets are expected to open later this year.) At any Dunkin Donuts, you'll have to buy an unbottled drink, but you'll get your pick among the many flavors.

OF ALL THE topics that diners tend to fuss over, "authenticity" is the fussiest to understand. Just listen to one of the food scene's more talented over-thinkers run a restaurant through his or her analytical atom smasher and you might agree. The quantitative critiques - service, prices, vibe - are all there, but things get weird once culinary credibility undergoes cross-examination. Is it "authentic" to use this sauce? In that soup, is marjoram an "authentic" garnish? Was the pot used to braise tonight's pork wrapped in indigenous leaves, buried beneath loose earth and gently attended by a pitmaster with Taíno ancestry?

Chef Michael Solomonov and his partner Steve Cook were playing the part of bakers one recent morning, so were up with the sun, flour dust covering their aprons. The pair, one of the city's top restaurant partnerships, were mixing and weighing ingredients, tasting sugar and spice combinations, and tweaking the doughnut recipe for their latest project, Federal Donuts, set to open next month. The doughnuts are the final hurdle in the trio of takeout offerings for their new shop.
