Krispy Kreme

Mr. B. and I were up very early to get packed and on the road to Ithaca.  I always find it hard when you are working to get things prepared ahead of time, I do for long trips but for short trips it's harder.  So we got packed in the morning and were on the road by 6:30 am. 

Krispy Kreme is an international doughnut company.  The last time I actually saw a store was at Heathrow airport.  We do not have any shops in our area, so when we saw this one on our way to Ithaca we took the time to stop off and get half a dozen with a coffee.  Krispy Kreme started in 1933 in Kentucky during the depression, you can read a little of their history here

As you can see they are made on the premises.

We bought some doughnuts for The Boy, Pumpkin Spice, my favourites are white vanilla cream with chocolate on top and cruller's.  I think their logo colours are very interesting, such an old fashioned combination almost holiday colours.  Red, white and hunter green, not colours that are in current vogue today, but they work.



  1. I love the cream one too! Their white cream is the best! Happily, we have one in Bensalem. Last week I took Laura to the train and on my way too work went by and got a Pumkin Latte and a glazed cream donut. Who came in behind me? Joe. He got the same thing I did.
    Nice treat on a long trip.

  2. Well done for getting away early. Pumpkin spice sounds lovely. I had Dunkin Donuts pumpkin muffins and loved it so much I found a recipe for similar. It just makes me think of all the colours of pumpkins and chrysanthemums and trees in Autumn. Hope you had a good time.
