Oklahoma City finally got a Krispy Kreme. I figured I'd pop down & pick up a breakfast snack for the wife & I. I'd heard that these joins attract a crowd & I assumed I'd be waiting in a decent sized line. HOLY SHI-ITE! There was a line of cars PARKED for a half mile down the road. I haven't seen a line like that since the gas station was giving out free gas last summer. I'm sorry, but for that kind of wait, that donut better be multi talented, if you get my drift.

I've never ever seen a krispy kreme place ever. Maybe their doughnuts are just really loaded with fried lard to make them taste so good. I always go for the Quality Dairy doughnuts, they taste great to me.

I'll second that. After they got cold, the suger tends to make them get "soggy".
There's a Krispy Kreme just up the street from my building. Been there forever. Might even be the original. Not a big deal, though. Kind of like that whole "Coors" thing. People used to go nuts over Coors. Now that it's available in Atlanta, it is not considered any better than most any other beer.

I dont eat at McDonalds anymore since my son had dinner at one in Orlando, and had diarehhia and nausia for 24 hours after - wouldnt have been such a bad thing by itself but it forced him and my wife to spend the WHOLE last day of our vaction at Disney world stuck in the hotel.
Now that sucks! They owe me big time.

Yeah, getting sick on vacations are definatly no fun at all. I don't think that I have ever gotten ill while we were away somewhere.
Last spring break we went to Winter Park, CO to go snowboarding, and my friends dad got sick from the altitude for 3 days. He only got a couple of hours of skiing in before we had to leave. For some reason, I didnt notice the difference in altitude at all.
They are planning on opening up a few Krispy Kremes in Pittsburgh over the next year or so. Definately good donuts though....I always get them when I visit my grandmother in Ohio. The one in Portsmouth has been there since the 50's.

Now, In-n-Out is definately worth the hype. I'd give every Sonic in Oklahoma City for just one In-n-Out location. Same with Round Table Pizza. But Krispy Kreme has to compete with our local Mom and Pop for my business. They always have hot donuts available and are lighter then air. Mmmmmmm, dough-nut!

stimpy, I lived in Okla city for 6 years while I was in the Air Force. MY favorite place there was Del Rancho on South Western. I loved those BBQ burgers. I visited my kids there and first place I stopped when I got to the city was there-for dinner.

krispy kreme's been around as long as i can remember here with quite a few locations so i've never had to wait beyond a couple of people. they are good though. i never get more than 3 or 4 'cause i want them as fresh as possible. if i wanted more (dought that i could take more than that anyway), i'd go back later.

Krispy Kreme's are awesome... although i haven't eaten a plain donut in 20 years (since i sold 200 box's as a fund raiser for explorer scouts!... i am now allergic to them)... i only eat the chocolote covered Kreme filled ones... mmmmm mmmmm!
but maybe i'm partial to em, as they are a NC original!

I always thought Krispy Kreme donuts suck. There was a fat contractor who would always bring a couple dozen to our jobsites. Most of the time, half wouldn't even get eaten. We used to throw them at eachother while we were playing up in the rafters These were fairly fresh, not hot, but still fresh. The glazed ones just seemed so heavy and sugary. Maybe they were glazed cake donuts... I don't really remember. They make me sick just thinking about them.

The standard Krispy Kreme raised, glazed doughnuts are awesome... with regular sugar glaze, chocolate, sprinkles, etc. etc.... hmmm.... gonna have to stop by there and have some doughnuts for lunch today.
Cake doughnuts suck. <bleah>

It's a donut made and sold at a Krispy Kreme store. Kinda like asking what a McDonalds hamburger is. Apparently the attraction is you get an extremely fresh donut. It's gonna be a while before I try on because of those stinkin lines. Cars are still lined up for HUNDEREDS OF YARDS DOWN THE DANG STREET! Unh-uh.
What the F*** IS A KRISPIE KREME!?!? And why are they THAT popular... Now then again we have Tim Hortons here... (Canada), there are areas where there is 4 tim hortons on the SAME Street corner (one on each corner!)
Honestly it's NUTS! You could open one ANYWHERE and make money! They sell stuff like coffe and donuts.
