Believe it or not, that did happen in Toronto when they opened here. The shop was beside mall parking. After store hours, they had a serpentine path setup with traffic cones, and off duty uniformed cops managing traffic. It was crazy.

I was just in Scotland, and yes, they are bananas for krispy kreme.  They literally talked about them as if they were the best thing ever.

However, they also spawned the deep fried mars bar, and deep fried pizza.  So, their undoing was started long before krispy kreme.

I've never had a krispy kreme.

Not a real donut fan, although about a month ago, I had to work on a Saturday, and they brought in dunkin.  I ate 2 donuts, and felt awful afterwards.  I could literally feel my pancreas begging for mercy.

Dunkin is to Krispy Kreme as Taco Bell is to a real Mexican restaurant.

I've wondered about the Scottish love of deep-fried foods, particularly since deep frying is not a traditional Scottish cooking technique. My guess is that deep frying lots of things (mars bars, pizza, ...) is an attempt to add variety to the large fish-and-chips component of the Scottish diet.

Fish and Chips:
Fish and chips became a stock meal among the working classes in Great Britain as a consequence of the rapid development of trawl fishing in the North Sea, and the development of railways which connected the ports to major industrial cities during the second half of the 19th century, which meant that fresh fish could be rapidly transported to the heavily populated areas.[1] Deep-fried fish was first introduced into Britain during the 17th century by Jewish refugees from Portugal and Spain,[2][3] and is derived from pescado frito. In 1860, the first fish and chip shop was opened in London by Joseph Malin.[4]
...
Dundee City Council claims that "...in the 1870s, that glory of British gastronomy - the chip - was first sold by Belgian immigrant Edward De Gernier in the city's Greenmarket."[18]
...
During World War II fish and chips remained one of the few foods in the United Kingdom not subject to rationing.[7]


So the love seems to have grown out of a bad wartime diet that at least tasted better than traditional Scottish food.

Krispy Kremes aren't bad if they are 'fresh', (as in still warm), but if not, they are 'GUT BOMBS'!

Dunkin is to Krispy Kreme as the cuisine in Mexico is to Tex-Mex.

Clearly there is a relationship between them, both are really good. But they are NOT the same thing.

In Sydney as well, maybe 10 years ago. Now they are gone from the market here except their donuts are still sold in 7-11 stores.
