I can remember standing on line the first Krispy Kreme shop that we visited.
At that time- there was a buzz all about NY and the famed doughnuts from Krispy Kreme. We took two dozen doughnuts home in the white and green boxes to the boys who devoured them pretty quickly.
Months later, when it came time to host Thanksgiving Dinner at our new place in Monroe, NY, our very good friend Bill Bish, brought over two boxes of the signature glazed treats as his contribution to our meal of thanks. I remember that day vividly too. We had a full house. Tons of food and tons of family and friends. Turkey and the fixings. Autumn Pies. Brownies. Cookies. Cake. But the doughnuts were the first dessert to go once the coffee came out! (I don’t think I had time to get them on a plate, because they were grabbed right outta the boxes!) When Bill and his wife, Malu arrived, Miggy was quite curious because Bill placed his service weapon on top of the hutch in the dining room. I think if Miggy could have climbed the hutch to see what went up there, we would’ve been in some serious trouble. Good thing he we were able to divert his interests to the yummy KK doughnuts instead.
Fast forward, years later when Krispy Kreme entered the Philippine Market (in 2006) on Bonifacio High Street. As a family, we would line up outside their flagship store whenever we saw Hot Light on! That would be the ultimate excuse to indulge in the sweet treats with the kids. The kids would get to eat a doughnut on the spot while it was still warm and gooey, and I would take home a whole box (sometimes two) that would be untouched because the kids would get their doughnut fix while waiting on line to pay.
But as many of you know already, Krispy Kreme isn’t just about doughnuts anymore. They have great coffee (and well trained baristas, like MJ) and delicious Baked Creations as well. With an extensive menu that boasts, pull aparts, kruffins, bread, and new deLite doughnuts that offer less sugar and less calories for a healthier version of their doughnuts, everyone will be happy (or joyous) with the choices they now offer their customers.
Krispy Kreme barista, MJ Onyot, invented this Mocha Con Oreo hot drink, which took FIRST place in the world KK Barista Competition!
Take a look at their new Baked Creations and see if you can’t find one that fits your taste 🙂
Miggy and I got to try all the different Baked Creations together, last Saturday during their launch in their ATC branch. While Mig enjoyed the Ham and Cheese Brioche, my favorite was the Camembert and Honey! (Go figure…the Cheese Momster chose a cheesy version!) We thoroughly enjoyed tasting all of the different types of Baked Creations AND we were able to take some De-Lite Doughnuts home!
