The Krispy Kreme in my hometown is closed for renovations so when we stumbled upon this jewel, we were super excited! !!!!

A bit of heaven that comes from a conveyor belt! Hot off the presses. If you have the chance, at least once, treat yourself to a true indulgence!!

Always fresh and good tasting. My grandmother is from New York city and every time she comes to visit me I have to go buy a dozen for her. She has a huge sweet tooth and loves Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

That's when they fry up the "shells." Shells are what are used to make the filled donuts. You can get unfilled, glazed, hot shells. The lack of the hole somehow makes for more doughy goodness. Yummy, yummy!
