Krispy Kreme Donuts

You know your day is going pretty good when you find a Krispy Kreme bag on your dining table. But there wasn't one box of donuts on it.

There were four.

I'm quite a purist when it comes to donuts. Plain and simple sugar glazed ones are my favorite. Chocolate ones are still within my comfort zone. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm heaps adventurous with foods and I reckon I would try that zucchini-cream-cheese-affogato donut if someone sold them but when a friend is helping you courier some Krispy Kremes (abbreviated to KK for short, hmm luckily they're not known as "Krispy Krunchy Kreme" haha) from overseas, it's safer to go with the trialed and tested flavors.

As with most KK donuts, they're usually a tad bit overly sweet but luckily the chocolate glaze wasn't too sweet since it was layered over the original sugar glaze. Once I scraped off some of the sugar glaze, the sweetness was just nice.

And of course the original sugar glazed donuts were just as good as ever.

Despite traveling a substantial distance to get to me, these were still fluffy and soft. I guess KKs travel pretty well. Interestingly enough, with this current donut craze going on in Singapore, I wonder how much leverage I can milk out of these donuts. I'm sure they'll give me great bargaining power in any situation.

D: I've got Krispy Kreme donuts.
Interviewer: Welcome aboard.

Cop: Did you know how fast you were going?
D: I've got Krispy Kreme donuts.
Cop: I'll get the coffee.

D: I've got Krispy Kreme donuts.
Girl: I'll go out with you.

Ok.. I think the point has been made.

Krispy Kreme, without a doubt, beats the other donut shops hands down. Can't wait till someone franchises it in Singapore. But if you take a look at the franchising details on KK net, you must have $10 mil, with aims to open 10 shops around the country. Hoho, not a small sum.

Anyway, got to try your donut recipe soon. Is it as good as KK's?

anon1: Hi there, Homer is the MAN!

anon2: Thanks for the headsup, have amended accordingly =)

camemberu: Blame the fad =P

hanes: I've already looked at the franchising rights awhile ago, a million usd per shop is quite an investment. I reckon my recipe is BETTER than KK's when eaten fresh. There's no preservatives of modifiers in it, so they don't keep as well but they'll give KK's a run for their money - fresh.
