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.

They do live up to the hype, but only if you can get them warm right out of the fryer.

Some places sell them cold in a display, and these are pretty good, but not like the real McCoys.

And they're not the kind of thing you can eat every day and expect to live long and prosper, if you get my drift.

We had one open here about six months ago - same deal - the line wasnt down the street, but there were lines out the door for months.

Its funny cause we had a couple of Dunkin Doughnuts places CLOSE down here in the last few years - people in this neck of the woods are going more for fresh bagels than doughnuts lately.

One of the attractions of Crispy Cremes is the conveyor belt machine you can see throught the glass windows, you can watch the big machine make the doughnuts.

and I think they use 100% cane sugar instead of sugar from sugarbeets (no corn syrup!) and they use other 'quality' ingrediants too.

So maybe they do taste a little better.

But I think if you put a bunch of doughnuts in front of me from there, and from the supermarket, and from dunkin doughnuts, after the 2nd one I would not notice the difference

and after the third one I would still get a sugar crash in 30 minutes and would want to take a nap.

Dont stand in the line, wait a few months, it will settle down. But ya still gotta go at least once - its a social thing now.

personally I would rather have a bagel and creme cheese myself - I hate to eat anything anymore that makes you feel crappy for the next few hours:

sugary doughnuts, anything from McDonalds, twinkies, Slurpies from 7-11 (even though I love em)...

Oh man I love McDonalds! Except the onions on the burgers, yuck! I usually ask to have them taken off, but it takes them so long to make it I sometimes dont bother.

Anybody have a Hot 'N Now near them? I really like it, really cheap stuff, good ole greasy fast food! Mmmmmmmm!

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.

See thats the difference between your dad and John Denver - the first time Denver got altitude sickness he called it something poetic, wrote a song about it and made millions of dollars.

your dad just got sick for 3 days and went home.

altitude sickness is nasty stuff BTW, you can die from it.

Didn't John Denver die of altitude sickness...as in sudden loss of ?

Sorry, but I thought he was pretensious and a phony environmentalist. After all, he did have a 5,000 gallon fuel tank installed at his house during the oil embargo.

yeah and the sincerety of all those great love songs kinda paled when it became obvious he was...

well lets just say when his marriage went down the tubes - apparently filling up his senses like a night in the forest wasnt good enough.

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.

It's the same with In-N-Out Burger. One opened up near my work. 9:00 am, there is a line of people that wraps around the entire store.

Nothing is fresh as a box of KRISPY KREME!

We have about 3 or 4 stores around here. They are the best donuts ever. At first there was long lines but that was just because of there only being one store, now with 3 or 4 its not too bad.

Only thing is, they don't have the selection that dunkin donuts does. But I would still go to Krispy Kreme anyway.

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.

Speaking of which (and not knowing the whole story behind this donut thing), but why hasn't Galen responded to this thread regarding the donuts?

Wish our state would get a Krispy Kreme. Seen an episode recently on Food TV where they talked about fresh hot donuts and KK!

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.

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.

my granmother use to live across the street when i was a kid

home made doughnuts every once in a while - put em in a bag and shook them with powdered sugar or cinamin and sugar.

If we saw her coming across the street with a paper bag in her hand we would intercept her on the front porch - doughnuts wouldnt even make it into the house.

krispy Kremes has nothing on Grandma!

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.

Tim Hortons has a weird starchy/raw flower taste that coats your mouth funny - there is a local donut shop like that here too, all the donuts taste the same.
