Krispy Kreme Grand Opening x 2

We have been waiting forever for a Krispy Kreme Doughnut to come to our side of town (which is still a good 30 minutes from Debbie), so when I got the scoop, I just couldn't wait for it to open!

My friend, Dawn, another food lover, told me it was opening Wed., July 6.  Well all I heard was Wednesday.  Tiff & I invited some friends to come to the festivities with us after Bible study last Wednesday night.  To my dismay, the "Hot Now" light was NOT on!  Huge disappointment filled my heart, but I was still excited and was going to make the best of it.  And then, to my complete horror, they were not open at all.  We were a week early!

So while waiting for my friends, I thought, "what the heck" and started taking pictures for our blog any way.  And then, an angel appeared.  I told him my dilemma and utter disappointment and he invited us into the store - to see if he had some doughnuts for us that they had done a test run on.  He ended up giving us 2 dozen doughnuts!!!  FFFRREEEEEEEEEE!!!  Now, they weren't my personal favorite, the hot ones fresh off the glaze line, but they were assorted,  and did I mention, FREE!

So, wanting to have some girl time (which was motive #2), we went to Starbucks instead...

Not a bad haul for being a week early!

2 boxes of love and goodness!  I'd say those chocolate glazed are 2nd runner up!

At Starbucks drowning in our sorrow... really?

We made friends really quickly.  We must have looked really cute that night!

And now, a week later, with much anticipation and just a little hesitation, we went to the Grand Opening of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts - Take Two! 

Do you see the HOT NOW light?  That gets me excited!

If you've never had the privilege of seeing doughnuts made, this is it!

KK started in Birmingham, Alabama!

I'm just a little excited - Tiffany, not so much...

I'm so sorry... I was so excited about my hot doughnuts I forgot to take a picture for you until after 4 were already gone!

We got there about 8:30 p.m. and the line inside and the drive through stayed long for well over an hour.  I wonder if this is any indication why Alabama is always among the most obese states?

We hope you enjoyed our little tour of our brand new Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.  You just can't beat the hot ones.  I did have to train the hubs early on in our marriage on how KK is the very last stop and you speed back to bring home the goodness.  He's a fast learner - and bless his heart, he's a diabetic now... so I'll have to finish the rest all by myself!  Ten seconds in the microwave and it's yum yum time!


  1. As a diabetic, I pray kk will come out with something for us! I'm jealous, but happy for you!
