Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme has being churning out donuts since 1937. I did not know about their delicious-ness until around 2002 when they began entering Minnesota and kids were going wild for them!!! I remember when they use to have a store in the Mall of America and we’d wait in huge wrapping lines to buy a dozen to eat at the food court. Looking back at my friend Nina’s photos I remembered my recent visit there and how in awe I was over the donut assembly. It showed you the secrets of donut making, the birth, the life, the consumption, and the tragic death of rejects.
Their donuts are rarity! They look like a regular donut but their batter is lighter, airy, and the frosting is so delicious. It’s not too heavy which is what I fear from most donuts. They also have a yummy array of twisted and cream filled donuts. My favorites are the round chocolate glazed donut filled with custard cream and the original hot glazed donut. Their donuts are pricier than the regular donuts at the grocery store and local bakeries. They usually $1-1.50 each. But you can buy them for a discounted rate by the dozen $8-12. They even have tiny mini donut dozens!
Then ironically as quickly as the donut dissipating in your mouth the chain dissipated and many locations near me closed. 😦
Until I found this one….

I feel like when consuming Krispy Kreme donuts you can eat a lot than more donuts than usual since they are so airy. It can be very fattening >< but still so delicious. There was a worker at the end of assembly line crushing rejects in huge piles. Rejects need love too!
I’m really happy to have found a Krispy Kremes and if you haven’t tried one, you’ve really got to. They are melt in your mouth deliciousness!
They have Krispy Kreme Donuts in Shanghai, China. My dear friends purchased some for us at Expo. (Shift B is Sweet!)
