Cheap Thrills For Sweet Treats

My friend and I took our sons to a MOMS Club outing at Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The shop had a display window so you could see doughnuts made in real time. First the doughnuts sat on long metal shelves that rotated in a circle while the dough rises. Once they had plumped up to the right size, the doughnuts were placed on a conveyor belt, which dumped them into a huge vat of hot oil that fried them to a satisfying crisp.
James and my friend’s son pressed their faces against the glass, in awe of the doughnut-making process. Then James’s friend pointed to the rotating shelves and said, “Look James, it’s a carnival ride for doughnuts!”
At least the doughnuts had some fun before they met their fates.

lol! That's so cute! My favorite Krispy Kreme is the honey dipped. Yummy! Now that I know the donuts have a bit of fun before ending up in my tummy, I won't feel quite so bad when I satisfy this craving.

Out of the mouths of babes.... Very cute. Love a Krispy Kreme - especially when the Hot Light is on. :)

I could have spent all day watching the donuts on their rides. I never go to Krispy Kreme, because if I did, I'd eat my body weight in donuts, and that would be a bad thing.

They seem to have closed most of the Krispy Kreme stores around here - makes me wonder if they might not have expanded too quickly. That said, I DO love their Bavarian Creams.
