That was exactly the problem I had when I used to get Dunkin Donuts at the place near my house in Kansas. Very little selection, and many stale.

They went out of business there along with several other locations in our town. Krispy Kremes always tasted fresh.

We have a Dunkin donuts in Santa Fe, but I have never been to it.

Hi hope it's okay to post this here. If not, the mods can delete it.

My daughter's non-profit skating club is selling Krispy Kreme cards for a fundraiser. Buy a dozen doughnuts, get a dozen glazed free. Each card has 10 punches on it, so you can do this 10 times. I think the cards are good for a year or to 18 months. I don't have the cards in hand yet, but if anyone wants one, send me a PM. They are $12.00 each. The card pays for itself after the 2nd "free" dozen.

ETA: Since the schools were on a delay, my son and husband went on opening day around 9:30am. They waited in line for about 15 minutes.

That's the trans-fats. Trans-fats are brilliant in that they don't harden (or liquefy) at room temperature but maintain their creamy state.

They are also responsible for 30,000 premature deaths a year according to the FDA.

Even though KK recently went "trans-fat-free", they actually contain just under the minimum amount that requires them to report trans-fat levels. They don't have quite the shelf-life they used to, apparently.

Now let it be understood that KK are by no means the only food manufacturer that uses trans-fats. They are in the majority of processes sweets, pastries and breads and margarine. If your food doesn't go stale in a day or so, it has trans-fats.

That looks really yummy.

I don't understand - and have never been in a KK to ask (got mine from the Winn Dixie) - why do they put chocolate frosting on top of the glazed donuts for "chocolate frosted" instead of on plain raised donuts? Anyone know?

I love chocolate frosted but not the ones from KK b/c its just too much sugar - it ruins the chocolate for me.

Now, I am the person who scrapes frosting off of a birthday cake b/c its too much, so perhaps I am just a freak.

Is it just a "KK is out to overwhelm your taste buds" kind of thing? Or do most people find it really yummy?

My wife usually just buys an assortment. I like just the "Regulars" which were not in the assortment. I also like the one filled with lemon creme.

But having gone a year or two without a KK, the assortment is good enough as a starter...

I wasn't called a party pooper when I expounded on the dangers of crystal meth, another addictive, health compromising, white substance that metro area folks line up for!
