Donut Wars

Here's a 1960 ad for Dixie Cream Donuts at 2851 Broadway in Lorain. For a short while, this place was a competitor of Bob's Donuts.
   I like the globe-headed advertising mascot - he's great! Dixie Cream Donuts is a chain, founded in 1922 in Dallas, Texas. The company is still around and even has a website under construction.
   Cool mascot or not, they obviously were no match for Bob Smith, the donut king, because they weren't around very long.
