Doughnut Adventures part 4: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

My friends and I decided to go do a late night Krispy Kreme run the other day to go grab some of their doughnuts because apparently after 9pm, all of their doughnuts are 50% off! (I didn't really know about this until my friend told me about it but isn't it awesome?!) The down side in all of this is that the only Krispy Kreme store that we have here in BC is located in Delta (7153 120th street Delta, BC) which is around a half hour drive from Richmond.

I haven't had Krispy Kreme in a long long long time and let me tell you, eating my first Original Glazed doughnut in 3 years was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I'm seriously not exaggerating, I haven't had Krispy Kreme in that long and the last time I had it was when I went back home to the Philippines! When we arrived however, the store was already closed so we had to buy our doughnuts through the drive thru window. I really wanted to go in and have a look at their doughnut selections and see the doughnuts first hand but since they close at 9, the drive thru menu/pictures will do.

They have quite a lot of choices to choose from and as I have written in my last few doughnut adventure posts, I super love doughnuts with fillings inside especially if it's fruit filled! Krispy Kreme does have a couple of fruit/cream filled doughnuts (Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled, Glazed raspberry Filled, Chocolate Iced Custard Filled, Glazed Kreme Filled, Lemon FIlled, and Powdered Berry Filled) but since my family preferred the Original Glazed better and I was trying to cut back on my sweets, I just decided to buy a dozen of the original ones to bring home so I wouldn't be tempted to eat more than I was planning to (esp if they were fruit/cream filled ones). If I wasn't buying for my family, I guarantee you I might have gotten almost every single flavor of doughnut that they have and maybe another dozen full of the Powdered Berry Filled doughnuts (which looks so good in the picture by the way!). I'm sure a lot of people have already tried their doughnuts and most of you would know that their doughnuts are really really sweet. Unlike Cartems or Outpost, Krispy Kreme's glaze is intense in sweetness (well for me it's super sweet!) and although it's melt in your mouth good.. eating too much of it isn't really good for your health.

As late as it was when I arrived home, I was tempted to eat 2 of the doughnuts myself (which I am not proud of since I was supposed to be cutting back on sugar!). Eating one just wouldn't cut it especially after 3 years of depriving myself from Krispy Kreme. So I guess putting a Krispy Kreme in Delta was a good idea since I won't be tempted as much to go buy and eat their berry filled doughnuts! If there is one in Richmond, I would probably have diabetes by now.
