Happy Birthday to Krispy Kreme

Happy 77th Birthday to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts!  

Growing up in Georgia I would go door-to-door every Saturday morning selling boxes of these doughnuts for cheerleading uniforms or other fundraisers.

Seriously, how sweet would it be to wake up to this darling truck scooting around your neighborhood...selling Krispy Kremes door-to-door?

The "Hot Now" sign is what separates Krispy Kreme from other doughnut chains.

 The most famous and best-selling is the Krispy Kreme original glazed, so light and airy--200 calories with 11 grams of fat...and not the good kind either...and a whopping 10 grams of sugar.  It will take a jog of 22 minutes or a walk of 53 minutes to burn it off.  But it's worth it!

Can't get to the local Krispy Kreme when the "Hot Now" sign is on?  Pop the doughnut into the micro for a few seconds and it's a melt-in-your mouth treat--almost like getting one from the Krispy Kreme store when the "Hot Now" sign is on!

Walmart now carries the Krispy Kreme Iced mocha and original glazed.  Unfortunately, these have been very difficult for me to find and I've searched numerous Walmart stores in Florida and Georgia.

Many, many more years Krispy Kreme!

I love Krispy Kreme, I'll only stop if the 'Hot Now' sign is lit.

I'm not much of a doughnut person, but I do love their chocolate iced custard filled doughnuts. One time we accidentally left a box of glazed KK doughnuts in the car on a hot day. They were just as good as the "Hot Now" doughnuts.

I haven't had the pleasure of trying anything from Krispy Kreme. Tim Horton's rules the donut franchise in Canada, where I'm from. They have some presence here in England but unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any near where I am. Maybe that's not a bad thing considering my sweet tooth? LOL!
