Loved these - from the freezer to the oven to your mouth in about 20 minutes. About the size of a Krispy Kreme, with better jelly.

I remember these and miss them. They were soooo good. I also miss the Morton Honey Buns and the small sugar spiced doughnuts. Iwish and hope they make these again . . . soon. My grandma bought a cardboard Morton Doughnut House that my sister and I played in all the time.

Whenever I shop in a new grocery store, I ALWAYS look for them. I miss them so much too. I never found a replacement for the jelly donuts, but I have, on occastion found the Honeybuns by a company named PetRitz. They were in Bedford, NH at a store called Vista Foods, which is now called Harvest Market. I will check today over there and keep you posted.

Those jelly donuts are something I will always remember. Such a treat! Sad they don't make them anymore. My kids would love them as much as I did!

My grandma would make them for my brother and sister and I when we were at her house. I can still remember sitting in her kitchen with her eating them. They were the best!

those donuts were the "BEST EVER" the company that bought Morton foods was Congra foods, the same jerks bought lincoln snacks and killed "screaming yellow Zonkers" too Congra foods are nothing but a buzz kill!!!!!!!

The jelly donuts and honey-dipped were my favorite of all time - even better than the just-made Dunkin Donuts down the street. Just the right amount of everything, and the jelly was perfection. I still remember the juicy, crispy exterior and the slightly warm, oozy, sweet jelly center that my grandmother would sometimes leave slightly frozen so I wouldn't burn my mouth. Nobody has ever come close to recreating that jelly or that glazing, combined with the airy, softness of the dough that melted in your mouth... Ahhhh...the 70's.

Thank goodness for Krispy Kreme since the fabulous Morton's Doughnuts are just a memory now. The glazed ones were spectacular, and my mom always made sure we had some in the freezer. I'd pop one in the oven and by the time I was ready to leave for school, it'd be ready: slightly chewy, soft, warm and fluffy with just the right amount of glaze. It really did melt in your mouth. That and a glass of milk even made sixth grade bearable. Mmmm!

I loved Morton's Doughnuts. Does anyone remember those Frozen assorted chocolate Cupcakes that came in a foil tray? There were frosted in Dark and light chocolate, and maybe a white buttercream, one had Chocolate jimmies, and one had coconut sprinkled on top. They were THE BEST!

I also remember Morton's Honey Dip Donuts, they first stop making the honey dip. So I started to get the mini cinnamon donuts. It's been 30+ years since I've had a great doughnut and I have tried every brand. In my late 30's started to try and replicate the donuts myself. Ive come up with many ways to make donuts by my mid 40's and none compare to what I remember . I do miss them and I actually thought I'd find them somewhere on the computer. It's funny at the end of my life that's one thing I would love to eat before I go. It looks like that won't happen, which SUCKS.

I was trying to talk to my hubby about these donuts I used to eat as kid with my brothers and I found out it was these . I talk about these donuts all the time try several different one but miss these one the jelly,glazed, and sugar all of them. Saturday morning breakfast and cartoon was the best as a kid.
