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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

  9. 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!

  13. 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?

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

  23. 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!

  24. 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. :-)
