How many years was Diener’s Bakery in business? My husband was related to Lucille and we loved the bakery items. I really would like to know the details so I can post this on my FB site. Thanks!

My grandmother, Tessie Allen drove the Diener's Bakery truck for many years. I would guess in the 1960's and 1970's. I always loved Mr. Frank's dinner rolls and of course the creme puffs. I also remember when he started selling donut holes. That place always smelled so good. I have many fond memories of Diener's bakery.

I remember the chocolate iced and glazed cinnamon twist, still warm. I've never had another doughnut that tasty.

Brownie Bakery in Washington NC has cream puffs very much like the Diener's cream puffs.

The cream puffs were the best thing on their bakery truck, although an "old fashioned" apple jack was also fantastic. I don't know why cream puffs have faded from popularity. The ones made like Diener's - were incredible.

Yum, old school bakery cream puffs *drool*

I agree on the cream puffs. They were awesome. In the 90's my sister sent me a fed-ex package with 2 dozen cream puffs for a house warming gift. They were wonderful.

If anyone has recipes from this bakery, please share! I would love to re-create treats remembered from a half-century ago!

This was an awesome bakery everything as a child was so delicious. I truly miss their marvelous birthday cakes. They were absoutely awesome.

Does anyone know the recipe for Diener's cream puff's we grew up eating those sweet delightful treats; now they have become just a memory. I think Dave started making them as a long time employee of Diener's after Diener's retired and called it quits. That didn't last long although the cream puffs were exactly the same. Sure would be nice to bring them back.

This is actually "Diener's Bakery." The title "Diener" is actually located above the words "Peoples Bakery." Diener's was a longtime local bakery on Dickinson Avenue that closed within the past decade probably. I remember it in high school.
