  2. Krispy Kremes*- proof you can never make too fattening a food for fat f*cks.
  3. The comments are quite fun, can't see the attraction myself.
  4. Krispy Kremes are fricken horrible doughnuts, a case of marketing over quality.
    They are to doughnuts what McDonalds are to Burgers.....gopping.

    Then what's the point? :smile:
  7. It seems that Mr Esterson's level of life-threatening gluttony is not adequately catered for at home and he has had to travel to the homeland of gastronomic impoverishment. Are we experiencing a new phenomenon; coronary tourism?

  8. They are quite tasty, but vastly overpriced.

    Sainsbury's do 5 jam ones for £0.65, job jobbed.
  9. No need for a "Donut" shop to create traffic havoc on the Embra Bypass. Hermiston Gait is notorious for traffic jams anyway. Me, I don't eat fast food, bar the occaisional fish supper. If this last few weeks news has not been enough to put people off eating cheap processed shite then hell mend them.

    Krispy Kreme were a struggling food chain until one of the founders had an insight that people like to see and smell their doughnuts cooking. So Krispy Kreme moved their ovens out into the main part of the restaurant and bake batches of doughnuts at peak times like lunchtime and when people were on the way home from work. People are paying for the ambience as well as the doughnut.

    Starbucks works on the same principle - make the experience memorable and people will pay well above the odds for a coffee, etc. Starbucks even call their staff Baristas...
