    A very interesting test. Several variations of stores to be tried. Joe and Jill Sixpack can take home doughnuts with their Pan & Scan DVD's!

    Here's the USA Today story.

    Finally, we won't have to go thru the grueling work of driving to the donut shop.

    Strange. Wally Marts in Canada already have Krispy Kreme for the past 2 weeks.

    The grocery stores and convenience stores where I live all carry Krispy Kreme. It's faster to go to the Hess Express 3 blocks away than to go to Wal-Mart.

    I just want a KK period, I don't care if it's in Wal-Mart or not. My last KK donut was last October when I was in South Carolina. I need a fix! [​IMG]

    I had a KK raspberry-filled donut on Sunday on my drive home from the FSU game. [​IMG]

    And the places where I get my dish soap and my socks are nearer than Wal-Mart, too. [​IMG]

    I do go to Wal-Mart occassionally, but only when I need something that can't be bought anywhere else at 3am.

    The wally world where I live has had a KK for a year now. They set up a table outside the entrance way and sale stale donuts. At least it's not out of a white van.[​IMG]

    If you read the article, KK will actually make the doughnuts in one or two of the WalMarts. Others will carry the product delivered to them from the local KK franchise. A Walmart Superstore near me does enormous business in their food department. There's a KK franchise near me that delivers doughnuts to Publix supermarkets, Target and several gas stations. They deliver every Thursday and Monday. Those raspberry filled ones are to die for. By the way they have excellent coffee.

    I went to a Super Walmart the other week and noticed they have a McDonalds in there too. Not only that, but you can order your food at the checkout counter and they'll have it ready for you when you walk out. I guess the hassle of having to go to the McDonalds across the street after the Walmart visit is just too much...

    No wonder 2/3 of Americans are overweight.

    I thought it was because people are on online forums for 8 hours a day.
