Would you queue for hours in wintry conditions to buy a doughnut? grin

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Sorry but I wouldn't queue at all. Far too sweet for me.

One of these days I'm gonna give in and eat one those things.

300-odd calories is not so bad - compared with about 500 for a Starbucks blueberry muffin!

When I was working, the Humming Bird Bakery was one of my clients, and apparently it was not unusual for long queues to form at a particular branch on a Saturday!

Like j08 I have never sampled the wares of Krispy Creme Doughnuts, and looking at the current state of my thighs, am not likely to!

Tried one of these once.....I have quite a sweet tooth but these are just airy sugar......give me a good old fashioned British jammy doughnut anytime..!

Hilda have you ever done the thing where you have to eat a proper round jam in the middle doughnut without licking your lips? Harder than it seems!

At the moment id kill for one!

In the US you can get doughnuts with bits of crispy bacon on top!

j08 Fri 15-Feb-13 20:49:37

That's true Riverwalk. I just want one of those raspberry ones.

j08 Fri 15-Feb-13 20:51:27

I meant about the calories. Don't fancy bacon ones!

I think they look sweet and sickly, now if you were offering a packet of cheese and onion crisps I would find that hard to resist.

Ho ho Phoenix......almost impossible I suspect............coo I really fancy one now, all oooozy with jam!

They look simply disgusting. I can't imagine wanting to try even one bite. Just looking at them makes my teeth hurt.
