When we didn't have a Krispy Kreme up here in the GVRD, Rich Guy and I would drive all the way to Burlington in Washington State for some donuts. That's right, we drove over 1 hour to grab donuts. We were either very committed or should be committed. Whatever the case, imagine the discussion we had with the border guard at customs. "Sir, do you have anything to declare?" "Yes I do". "What is the total amount you purchased?" "$80". "What did you purchase?" "Donuts". "Donuts???" "Yes, we like donuts". "Uh... have a nice day". We would do Krispy Kreme runs for all of our friends; thus the big purchase. I'm not sure if the border guard was confused or thought we were nuts or something. When Krispy Kreme first opened in North Delta, we lined up for over 1 hour for these donuts. In hindsight, I'm not sure why we were so insane. Could it be the hype? Although I don't mind eating Krispy Kremes, they are surely not my favourite. That is reserved for Top Pot and Voodoo.
Krispy Kremes have one thing going for them - they are not very heavy. It's easy to eat more than one of them because there is practically no substance to them. However, there is far too much glaze on them. They are so sweet, Jolly Ranchers have nothing on them. Personally, I can only eat one of them at a time. However, Miss Y can do at least 3 at a time. The original glazed is still by far the best donut they have at Krispy Kreme. For some reason, their other variations, including jelly-filled, cake and fritters are not as good. It's possibly that they are just too sweet? Whatever the case, I don't mind eating them occasionally because they are far different than any of the offerings they have in the GVRD.
- Very light, you can eat more than one (not sure if you should)
- They're made fresh (even fresher before when they were more busy)
- Decent selection
- Far too sweet
- Other than the original glazed, their other donuts seem almost an afterthought
