re: Frank Language
Oh, break my heart with this casting of aspersions on
Krispy Kreme crullers. I have loved them for twenty
years! Granted, they are a wee bit tire-like in
appearance.... Actually this gives me a good
idea/excuse for a research project: to try both the
cruller and the new Rainforest Crunch for assessment.
re: Susan Thomsen
Frankly, Frank is right. The crullers at Krispy Kreme
are not only tire-like in appearance--they also taste
like brake pads. I love the plain old glazed
doughnuts, but I think everything else at Krispy Kreme
is pretty crummy (my one Rainforest Crunch experience,
sorry Jim, was unremarkable).
re: Steven Shaw
Good news! Krispy Kreme crullers, contrary to recent
slurs, are still good. I bought one from the 8th St.
store recently & liked it a lot. A cake doughnut, lots
o'glaze, and a hint of lemon. The Rainforest Crunch is
really, really sweet. You can best taste the crunch by
eating it directly off the top. A loaded-up glazed
doughnut & a seasonal thing, part of whose profits go
to charity, according to an employee at the store.
Best of all from my Krispy Kreme run was the Devil's
Food. Chocolaty cake doughnut with the same sugary
glaze as the cruller. Nice and fresh, like the others.
