Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

The first Krispy Kreme Donut shop opened in CT yesterday. They opened at 5 am and by 6 am there was a line...no lie.. a mile down the road. A father and son camped out front of the store since Sunday for the opening. They got a years supply of donuts. at 11grams of fat a piece they will be plump in no time.
During our afternoon break a generous co-worker came in with 3 dozen to share. I tried one and yes it was good..... but not good enough to wait in a mile long line!! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
They intervied a woman on TV and she got there at 6am and was still in line at noon.
I think I'd rather spend my time watching the grass grow.

all you have to do is undercook a donut and put a lot of frosting on it and serve it warm [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

It's a southern thing - you might not understand . . .
I'm from Tennessee, originally . . . & can't count the number of late night Krispy Kreme runs me & the boys made in our youth, semi-innebriated!
I dunno what they put in those things, but its down-right addictive!
I'm sure that expansion'll be good for buisness, but I'm not sure that this southern tradition should be shared with Yankees . . . next thing ya know - ya'll will want to whip up a batch of vinegar based bbq sauce & cook a pig in the ground!!

Re: Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

Yep same thing happened here in Phoenix, big long lines at first. it'll die down after that new car smell goes away [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Here the attraction was alot of transplanted people wanted to get a taste of home. They are OK but I dont see what the big fuss was either.
Wait till you get a "IN & OUT Burger" they are a chain from California same thing lines around the block, and they only have like 5 items single/double/triple, frys, shake, soda. thats the whole damn menu [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] seemed to me the main things they sold were T-shirts and Hats with their name on it

Re: Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

yup, definitely a southern thing. a new one in SA opened up a couple weeks ago...the closest store before that was in Austin. anyway, 1500 people lined up...it cause traffic jams on I10 and Dezavala....it was retarded.

anyway, they use a different kinda flour than regular donuts, so they're really tender. they'll melt in your mouth. not to mention they are really really sweet. you can drink black coffee while you eat them and your coffee tastes sweetened [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] i'm not one of these Krispy kreme freaks, i'd take a walmart or HEB donut anyday [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

Yeah that was pretty ridiculous when Kripsy Kreme opened here in San Antonio. The day they opened I drove by and they had to have police traffic control in their parking lot. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] It was 10 p.m. the night before and people were lining up. All that fuss and bullsh*t over them and I still havent had one, have no desire for one either.

Re: Whats the big deal with Krispy Kreme?

Southern thing [img]images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] you are a redneck. We got a krapy kreme up here in Fargo, N.D. so I don't think it is a southern thing. Same thing here when they first opened too, big line and all that crap. They just spend a lota money advertising and hyping it up before they open. Personaly I think there donuts suck. But that is just my opinion. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
