...even is seeing demand for wedding cakes made of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Ewww. That's just wrong on too many levels.
2003-07-10 09:57:44 AM  
I bow before them. As long as they feed me this..this..manna of the gods.

Let me be the first to add this.

Mmm, Doughnuts

There is nothing like deep fried lard, covered in sugar.

For this, I thank God.
2003-07-10 11:14:15 AM  
quick, someone post the krispy kreme calendar
2003-07-10 11:14:16 AM  
QUICK someone post a picture of the big white fluffy creme thing whose name eludes me from ghostbusters!

We've just recently seen an upsurge of Krispy Kreme Donuts around here, and I'm not that impressed. They've taken over all of our old grocery store style cake donuts that were SO much better!

Crispy Creme

This garbage wants worldwide domination? Well, if McDonald's can sucker so many people in...

I'm gonna stick to Tim Horton's, thank you. No deep-fried glazed fat rings for me.

You yankees crack me up with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I grew up on those doughnuts and I am 33, but we never had huge lines waiting for them.
2003-07-10 11:16:47 AM  
Bahhh, they'll never make any significant headway in Canada. Tim Hortons will crush them like so many rainbow sprinkles.

/looking forward to the Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Kripy Kreme and Dunk'n'Dounuts Death Match
2003-07-10 11:16:50 AM  
Krispy Kremes? How can cream be crispy??!?

Sorry, not when there is a Horny Tim's right down the road from me.

2003-07-10 11:17:02 AM  
They already dominate the topsy-turvy world of my belly!

Just another food chain that's so full of themselves (pun) that they'll over expand and then will have to shut down hundreds of stores in the future. BTW...Krispy Kremes that are sold anywhere other than the place they are made...suck. It's like buying frozen entrees of your favorite restaurant fare. It just ain't the same.
2003-07-10 11:18:51 AM  
the only krispy kreme donut worth eating is the sour cream.

sweet delicious sour cream donut oh how I love you
2003-07-10 11:18:52 AM  
Gaambit: "grocery store style cake donuts that were SO much better!"

Suuuuure they were.... your medication is ready, btw.

There is a Krispy Kreme pretty close to a Best Buy in my town. This makes a $5.99 dozen of doughnuts usually cost around $55.99 because of the inevitable stop/purchase at Best Buy. If those two get into some kind of cross marketing, I'm done for. Something like for every dozen at KK, you get $5 off at BB... or for every $50 at BB, you get a free dozen at KK.

I'm with docfate and therealscrod

Tim Horton's OWNS Canada. We are all merely zombies under the dark spell of its super-caffeinated coffee and sticky butter tarts.
2003-07-10 11:19:36 AM  
LaMar's doughnuts are the best. You could lose a KK doughnut in a bowl of Cheerio's if your not careful.
2003-07-10 11:20:20 AM favorite donuts....
2003-07-10 11:20:35 AM  

Bahhh, they'll never make any significant headway in Canada. Tim Hortons will crush them like so many rainbow sprinkles.

Actually there was quite a demand for them a while back in waterloo. long long line ups.
2003-07-10 11:20:53 AM  
Krispy Kreme donuts are not that great, Dunkin' D are much, much better. The Boston Creme Donuts from KK are far inferior to the Dunkin' D.
2003-07-10 11:22:13 AM  
Canadians are only interested in KK for the novelty. It will always by your Ringo to Horton's Rest of the Beatles.
2003-07-10 11:22:15 AM  
therealscrodd - Well said:) Krispy Kream sucks! Commie bastards!!!!
2003-07-10 11:22:21 AM  
Oh, almost forgot...

Cue the elitist pricks that will bash KK saying "X" place is better or ripping on fatties who like doughnuts.

No one wants to hear your shiat, so fkoff!

I don't know... there's something comforting about a fatty eating a doughnut... it's like the universe simply "being" the universe.
2003-07-10 11:22:50 AM  
Or "be", for that matter...
2003-07-10 11:23:00 AM  
While I absolutely love Krispy Kreme donuts, the company is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. When the first Connecticut store opened, it was a traffic nightmare. A couple of the surrounding towns, in addition to the town its located in had cops doing lots of OT to deal with it. Krispy Kreme, for some reason, hasn't paid all of the towns for the extra police.

With the local economy in the shiatter and towns struggling to make ends meet, do you think these dickwads that are rolling in dough could maybe pay up?
2003-07-10 11:23:41 AM  
I've tried Krispy Kreme a few times and while they are OK, I prefer the donuts from our little local Korean owned Mexican bakery...(yes, Korean owned mexican bakery) They make killer donuts, plus all kinds of mexican pastries, and sweet breads. And, for good measure, they make tacos, burritos, hamburgers, etc...The Korean guy owns three of them in the area and all three are busy 24/7...
2003-07-10 11:24:21 AM  
I still don't understand the fanaticism people have for krispy kreme doughnuts... they aren't anything special at all... even dunkin' dounuts is better... but somehow it's a mass hysteria thing, where everyone thinks everyone else loves them, so they have to eat them too, because they must be good, when in reality nobody actually cares for them. How about some doughnuts? Nah... How about some krispy kremes? What, woah, yeah, woo-hoo, bring'em on, yum yum!
*slap* I hate you all. Typical of my peers and the reaction I'd have were it not for restraint. Sigh... I just don't get people...


2003-07-10 11:24:22 AM  
Those things are so nasty. =P Just way too greasy, or something.
2003-07-10 11:24:25 AM  
This is new to you people? Has anyone else ever noticed how Dunkin Doughnuts isn't even out there anymore like it used to be? Kripy Kreme is taking over the doughnut world by storm.

/friend used to work there and still has the boots covered in that icing crap.
2003-07-10 11:24:28 AM  
(Backing away slowly from Mierk's comment, he quietly went back to his Horton's coffee.)
2003-07-10 11:25:07 AM  
Krispy Kreme should team up with Second Cup in Canada. Tackle Tim's on both their strengths, and I'd switch over. Of course my coffee and honey crueller would probably cost upards of $5 compared with Tim's $2, so it will still be only a novelty.
2003-07-10 11:25:59 AM  

Waterloo is an anomoly. Just look at U Waterloo, only university in Canada with a Faculty of Math. These people pride themselves on being different.
2003-07-10 11:26:12 AM

Interesting analogy since Ringo will outlive the rest of the band
2003-07-10 11:27:21 AM  
Sweet non existant god, someone just make the dougnut conspiracy stop!

2003-07-10 11:28:03 AM  
Krispy Kreme = one of the most overhyped items ever.

C'mon, really.

2003-07-10 11:29:10 AM  
God bless the makers of Krispy Kreme! Personally, I hope the first victims of their expansion is Shipley Doughnuts (loacl chain in Houston, TX). Their doughnuts aren't that good, they charge an arm and a leg for them, and not many people go there anymore because noone behind the counter can understand your order enough to get it right.
2003-07-10 11:29:39 AM  
Space Coyote:

but that would make it a two-front war with Starbucks as well. Second Cup may be over-franchised like SB, but their coffee is too weak and they're bleeding badly from the coffee wars.

Horton's, on the other hand, will always prevail. Like Canadian Tire, it's one of the brands that defines us as a nation. (Notice how they're both related to hockey...)

doughnut also donut (d'nt', -nt)

A small ring-shaped cake made of rich, light dough that is fried in deep fat. Also called olicook.
Something whose form is reminiscent of a ring-shaped cake.
A fast, tight 360 turn made in a motor vehicle or motorized boat.

doughnut you fool!
2003-07-10 11:32:22 AM  
Good one, Ouro

But, of course, I was speaking of the Beatles as timeless pop phenomenon. I couldn't give a RA about what Paul and Ringo are doing now.
2003-07-10 11:33:10 AM  
I concurr. Second Cup is indeed an inferior coffee shop. I can't even stand Tim's any longer, and I don't eat dounuts. If you are ever down to Kingston, try out Coffee & Company. I never knew what good coffee actually tasted like until I started hitting that place every morning. Not a franchise yet though, so the rest of the world will have to live in ignorance for a while yet.

HEY! i happen to be in that math department and well........yea this city is getting really boring
2003-07-10 11:35:38 AM  
Jeez, I can't believe some of you. You have horrible taste in doughnuts.

You eat whatever doughnuts Corporate America tells you to eat.

You want good doughnuts? Support local doughnuts. I liked Krispy Kreme, before they got popular. Their old stuff is much better than this watered down, new family friendly doughnut type.

/trying to make the doughnut thread similiar to a music thread

The date: 2021. The climate: A world torn apart by its love, or hate of a small circle.

Twenty years late, the brutal war is over. The dognut war machine has been toppled, and the brave leader of the resistance raises his cup and Timmies' coffee in a cheer of rightiousness.

/me speel good. Me take school klass and pass.

Hey Nietzche

Actually, I'm from Kingston. Is Coffee & Co. the one on Princess & King, where Millan's Grocery used to be? It's okay, but if I want really good coffee, I get it fresh roasted from the Tea Party here in Ottawa. It's completely different from Horton's, though. It's the fine red wine to Horton's street-grade smack. They both have their uses, though...
2003-07-10 11:37:17 AM  
All you people comparing Tim Horton's to Krispy Kreme are completely laughable. I grew up in Buffalo, a block away from a Tim Horton's. We never had Krispy Kreme's there. Now, I don't really like donuts; hell, I don't like most sweets, but I LOVE a Krispy Kreme every now and again. They don't even compare with normal donuts; in fact, they shouldn't be called donuts at all--they're on a whole different level. I've had plenty of Tim Horton's donuts while growing up...usually for lack of a better breakfast. I'm thinking the people heralding Tim Horton's have never experienced a Krispy Kreme. Honestly, it's like comparing the best fast food hamburger you can find to the finest filet mignon from a 4-star restaurant...
