The Krispy-Kreme Cruiser

We are road-tripping again and a fun thing we saw a couple of days ago was The Krispy Kreme Cruiser.  Can't remember the exact locale but we had gone through Atlanta and hadn't yet crossed into Alabama.   As we approached we recognized an old bus and were remarking on its lines and how regal looking the old buses, in fact most old cars all seemed to be.


As we got closer we could see the advertising on the side.  This is our all-time favorite doughnut.  Gregg has known them since he was a little boy and he introduced me to them when we got married.  No danger of us getting anything other than the occasional treat.  We have none of their shops in our vicinity.  Good job I guess.


We usually have to wait until we go to one of our favorite parks in Alexandria to find a shop a couple of miles away, which we visit a couple of times a year, or when we go to Virginia Beach.  But here we were traveling along and we overtake the Krispy-Kreme Cruiser.  I wish we could have flagged it down.  We had skipped breakfast and it was way, way past lunchtime.


We sadly said goodbye as it disappeared in our rear-view mirror.


We have a hankering for Krispy-Kreme Doughnuts, but Siri says "I couldn't find any restaurants matching  Krispy-Kreme Doughnuts near you."  Instead we are heading to Johnson's Bakery for breakfast tomorrow.  She tells us they sell doughnuts!

The Krispy-Kreme Cruiser has a website.  You can check them out here.

we have one in our city where you can see where they make the doughnuts and they even go down an assembly line.

The Krispy-Kreme doughnuts are yummy. I have never seen the cruiser, it is neat. Happy travels.

Hmm! I'm feeling quite peckish after reading your blog. The style of that vehicle is brilliant, no wonder it attracted your attention.... aside from the doughnuts of course. Have a great road trip.

I missed the boat somewhere in life. I don't like donuts at all. But I will say that KC has the best of them if I were to eat donuts.

TexWisGirl said...

what a cute old bus!

those donuts are dangerous when they are piping hot and fresh!

What a fun sight and we always look for ones along our road trips, Denise. We found one as well on this one to Roanoke and I may post it under Friday Funnies. Glad you are having a great trip and hopefully no bad weather.

The company didn't do well in Canada.I think most people are addicted to Tim Hortons! I don't eat donuts at all, so haven't a clue.

That's a great looking bus. Wonder how they managed to keep it looking so good all these years. Somebody gave it TLC I bet.

Makes a person hungry just to see that sign, yum! Happy roadtripping.

When was in high school I ate a Krispy Kreme Donut every day along with Fritos. They sold them in our school cafeteria.

Afternoons, I stopped on the way home from school at the pharmacy, and had an Almond Joy and a Cherry Coke, or went by the bakery and bought a creme horn or Chocolate Eclaire . I walked home every day and played sports, so I guess that wore off the calories, but it sure was a bad diet.

You can by delectable donuts at Dunking Donuts, here in Arlington in a couple of locations, although I haven't in a long time.

The Krispy Kreme plant used to be on Route I just outside Alexandria City. My kids and I liked watching the donuts going through the assembly line. Of course we had to buy some while we were there. The jail i where I bailed my EX is just down the road.

It may have been a blessing that he didn't stop. If you were so hungry you would have eaten far too many. There is something elegant about the old buses

despite me having a very sweet tooth I find Krispy Kreme donuts way too sweet for me? Great bus and advertising.

Brian King said...

LOL! How cool! It's very vintage looking.

We only had Dunkin Donuts in our area in Illinois so we never had FRESH Krispy Kreme. We tasted the ones that people brought over from downstate, but it was never really that amazing. Everybody told us that you had to eat it FRESH. One of these days, I'd really like to try a fresh one.

I've been reading up on Krispy-Kreme doughnuts and now I know why it was fun to see the cruiser, which is a beautiful vehicle anyway. Apparently we have a Krispy-Kreme coffee bar in our UK out-of-town megastore and I will have to check that out! Enjoy your road trip, Denise!
