Who is Krispy kreme?

These warm, buttery, crunchy rings of dough are the best ever!!!! Moved to the island after they closed for the season, couldn't wait for them to reopen! They are everything everyone says about them! Awesome!

I couldn't believe some the comments/reviews that people have written about Britt's. First, let me say that I grew up in Carolina Beach and even after 25+ years I ALWAYS look forward to the season when Britt's Doughnuts will re-open!!! I read a review that actually compared Britt's to crappy Krispy Kreme and honestly, no disrespect intended, but that review... More

Britts is closed during the winter. They reopen in spring with limited hours. These plain glazed donuts are awesome! Melts in your mouth like Krispy Kreme but crispy on the outside with air bubbles in the middle. Most people were buying three dozen at a time!! I will be back!!

We stood in line for 30-40 minutes because every one around us was saying it was worth it. The donuts were really good, but we both like Krispy Kreme better. I would go back here for donuts but would not wait in line for them. All I hear is good things about these donuts so maybe we are just crazy.... More

They are very light and fluffy which is good but not much substanance. Must eat fresh otherwise they turn to grease. It is definitely a must try, the smell is like a carnival and is a nice atmosphere

If you like warm glazed donuts then this is the place. Eight dollars for a dozen donuts is a pretty good price too. Get there early - the line can get quite long.

I read reviews and decided to try. Not sure what all the hype is about. Donuts tend to be greasy...not good next day. Try Krispy Kreme located on the way to Carolina Beach.

Great local Donut Shop which has a history of serving up the most tasty, melt in your mouth donut. Great service, friendly staff, locally owned and operated and you cannot eat just one.
