Sink your teeth into this franchise's signature glazed doughnut, and don't be afraid to indulge in its many varieties of deep-fried perfection. – In Short
In 1937, Vernon Rudolph brought a secret recipe from a French chef to North Carolina, creating the infamous irresistible treat and starting a glazed doughnut revolution. These scrumptious doughy delights are brushed with a sugar coating, and have been know to cause even the most dedicated hard-bodies to temporarily abandon their diet. Evolving past the original glaze recipe, today customers can now choose from a variety of lip smacking treats, from apple fritter to New York cheesecake doughnuts. The international company still holds to its roots, providing welcoming and helpful service while perfecting its craft at making melt-in-your-mouth masterpieces.
Great but it would be impossible to live up to the hype! – Get real you believers, it's not THAT great. They've never mysteriously appeared on a tortilla or a photograph of the sky, and no wars have been fought over them (at least no war where shots were fired anyway, in light of recent legal struggles here in Texas).
The good: If you get them while they're hot, Krispy Kreme glazed donuts are probably the best donuts you've ever had. They are extremely sweet, but even so my wife likes them and she normally eschews the overly sweet. The donut making machinery is fascinating and worth the stop.
The bad: if they're not hot, they're really not much better at all than your usual Dunkin' or Shipley donuts. The sweetness is more of a problem when they're not hot. Krispy Kreme products on the shelf (other than the glazed donut) border on inedible. They're way too sweet and rich. Don't bother with items like creme filled donut or cruller.
My opinion: Krispy Kreme glazed are a little better than other brands, but when you get them hot off the line they're a lot better. The mechanized machinery makes this possible all day long, and that's Krispy's secret advantage. For the creme filled etc that are not available hot, they're no better than other brands, except that the excessive sweetness makes them inedible.
Day old Krispys actually taste a lot like today's Shipley's!
