    I'm sorry, I just can't stand Krispy Kreme.
    I'd rather have Dunkin' Donuts.
    Am I the only normal person I know?

    The best thing about them is that they are cooked at a very high temperature which kills the calories. You can eat all you want and never get fat.

    I tried a KK donut last year when I was on vacation in Vegas.
    To be honest, I wasn't impressed. Tasted like a regular donut with icing sugar on it.
    Then I heard how they were made, and I wanted to vomit.
    I remember once I went to a place in Niagara Falls Canada when you can watch people making fudge. They put all the ingredients out on a table behind a glass partition, and cook away.
    What I remember the most vividly though is the "cook" pouring the condensed milk into a piping hot ion pot, dumping in two bags of sugar, and then casually unwrapping two HUGE BRICKS of butter and throwing them into the mix.
    The sight of those two congealed mounds of fat dissolving into the concoction was too much for me. I had to leave the room because I thought I was going to be sick.
    For me, it's not so much how it tastes but how they get it to taste that way. I guess it's a psychological thing.
    Moe.

    I remember going to the Krispy Kreme in Alexandria Virginia when I was about 7 or 8 years old. (about 24 years ago)Damn fine donut then. I've tried many others during those years but the Krispy Kreme glazed squeaks them all out.

    I keep hearing about people in the West waiting in line for Krispy Kreme doughnuts when new stores open... I've been enjoying Krispy Kreme doughnuts all my life here in the South.

    I'm not a sweet tooth but Tim Hortons every couple of months is sure damn good. It would be interesting to see US franchises come up here or Timmy's go down there... Love those Timbits!!

    I had some KK's when I was down in Califronia.
    Trust me: Krispy Kreme will destroy Tim Hortons and Robins Donuts.
    They should be afraid - VERY AFRAID...

    Hell, I grew up with Krispy Kreme outlets nearby (and I won't tell anyone where that was). I remember being able to get a fresh batch at a certain hour. I don't like donuts as a rule (fat-fried bread with sugar--ugh). But I sure as hell like a Krispy Kreme.

    The Pittsburgh area finally has been graced (or cursed) with a Krispy Kreme. I sampled one of their donuts and it didn't seem to be much better than Dunkin' Donuts. It could be that my expectations were incredibly high, but I still wasn't that impressed.

    And let me add that the Krispy Kreme donuts I consumed had no holes. I was disappointed. My favorite thing to do is stick my tongue in that hole and eat it. [​IMG]

    Michael K,
    Are you referring to the Krispy Kreme on Harlem Ave (near Archer)? I used to live right over there, and my grandmother still does. Every time I go back to visit, there isn't a day that goes by that I dont hit the KK at least once a day.
    Its really a shame that here in Boston, there is a Dunkin Donuts on every corner (I have 3 of them within walking distance, one of them is only about 50 yards away). I'd kill for a KK here in Boston...

    Steve, the Harlem Ave. store was the first to open here. While I've never been to that store, I work with people that did and they had to wait 30 minutes when KK first opened. I only live about five miles from the Midlothian shop now and the lines there were also crazy when it opened about a year ago. Let me tell you, on the days that I bring a couple dozen KK donuts into work, I'm treated like a celebrity. [​IMG]

    In Knoxville, there is (was?) one Kingston Avenue. I travelled that way every day to see my girlfriend while in college. The aroma is the trick. It's what pulls you in. I'd show up frequently with a box (minus one) of donuts at her apartment. [​IMG]
