I agree with Sierra. Krispy Kreme doesn't taste the same unless it's served hot or served at a place that makes them right there. What's occuring now is Krispy Kreme has two types of eateries. The first one is the type we are all familiar with; it's the type that serves and makes the donuts right there. Well, now Krispy Kreme has a second type of store. It's still called Krispy Kreme and has the shingle outside and everything but they don't make donuts there; they only serve them. There is one in Chandler like this and it doesn't taste the same. They have the original type of store that makes the donuts in Mesa and that's the real deal. Once KK's cools down and are on the shelf for a while, it doesn't taste the same. It's kind of like McDonalds french fies. you have to eat them when they are hot or they don't taste the same.

So it's confirmed... Well, that's a crappy strategy for getting back in business, I'd say.

Sounds like Kreepy Kreme's hockey pucks will mainly be good if made in-store... otherwise, they'll be just like every other donut store out there in donut-land!

I'm willing to bet that Le Cave's Bakery of Tucson will be just as excellent (if not better), since they've been making their stuff in-store since 1935!

Do they come with bullet filling every day, ZP? Or only on special occasions?

The place was still packed........with teenagers. It was nice actually. It was small yet very clean, uncrowded with couches and nice little tables and an LCD Television mounted on the wall with benches and newspapers nearby. It sure beats the McDonalds-like atmosphere of the ones with the bakery inside. With this Krispy Kreme, it was run much more efficiently and was good for people on the go or someone wanting to grab some coffee and read the paper before heading out to work. But yeah in terms of the donuts, they don't taste quite the same but it's a pretty nice substitute to Starbucks

Bullet filling? Is that anything like Arnold's Pizza Shop?


"Every pizza comes with pepperoni, and with 9mm bullets on it!"

Yeah, it's about right. Whether you want it or not, you'll receive it anyway!

No that's an urban legend. No bullets are used in the making of their donuts...

THAT story got started because they once accidentally used gunpowder when they ran out of jelly...
