The Doughnut Run










Oh my!

We have to drive over 20 miles to our nearest Krispy Kreme. My one personality is very sad at this thought. My other personality, the sensible one with the willpower, thinks it's a very good job there isn't one right around the corner.

Not an addiction I share. Chocolate on the other hand ... We had a Crispy Creamery in town, but it didn't get enough business and closed.

Oh, I loooove Krispy Kreme! Unfortunately, there is just one in Hawaii and it is located on Maui. Those piping hot donuts are addictive, aren't they. Try stopping after just one! lol.

I love the Krisy Kremes too. Sad though, most of their stores around here closed. The hot ones right off the rack are delicious.

The Tame Lion said...

Closed... most of them, sigh...

Denise, you crack me up!! Your post was just delightful! And because it's early morning and I'm sitting here with my first cuppa, I am now craving a hot, glazed donut!! ~karen

I'm inspired. We have a Krispy Kreme within a mile. I might grab a box on my way to work.

Denise,
I am laughing at the cravings for donuts, and I have been there...but I am more in need now of the will-power you mentioned!! At almost 60, I more than ever want to feel good in this aging body...
I appreciate the kind words.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me. I really love getting to 'peek' into the world of others through blogging.
Blessings today!

There used to be a Krispy Kreme near us, and we'd take the kids with us to watch them make the donuts, then get a free, warm sample as we placed our order. There coffee wasn't too good, but the donuts were amazing. For coffee, Dunkin' Donuts is better.

Have one Krispy Kreme for me, will you?

Janie said...

I've had a few Krispy Cremes. They are fantastically delicious! I haven't every gotten up at 5Am to get them hot, but I would like to try it once.

Carol............. said...

Ahhhh...my husband's favorite doughnuts....I'm a potato chip kind of girl... wonder which one is healthier! LOL

Doughnuts, I am happy to say, are not my weakness. Now if there was a flower garden that I could feel free to wander around and take pics....

Debbie said...

Those are to die for, sooo good. That is pretty early to get up. I always enjoy the way you tell a story, you are so funny.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hugs,

I have to go 80 miles and have done it. I drove 170 miles each way to gop to a Dunkin after seeing their commercial for double chocolate.I am blessed with a Dutch town with 2 nice bakeries nearby I got to a lot, but never hot like the glazed. MMMMMMM.

I am just imagining buying eight dozen doughnuts . . . and were they still warm by the time you got back to the hotel?

Marie (once The Tile Lady) said...

I gained 5 pounds just reading this! :-) I don't think the boxes of donuts would have made it back to the hotel at all if I had been in charge!

Kay said...

I've had the cold and old Krispy Kreme and didn't think much of it. Someone told me I needed to try it hot to understand why everybody is crazy about it. Hmmm... the only donut place we have here is Dunkin Donuts and I haven't had that in years. Now you've made me crave one. :-)
