Donuts Today

I stopped by the local donut shop this morning to pick up a cream-filled one for my wife. I asked the woman behind the counter if all of the filled donuts had the same filling. No, she said; some had butter cream, and some had custard. What flavor of custard, I asked. "Custard," she said, giving me that look that says, any idiot knows that custard is just custard.

I bought the butter cream.

Would this happen if Pittsburgh were a growing, dynamic city like San Francisco, or Boston? I mean, could I find bakeries that know that custard can be made in different flavors?
