I would run away from a cake doughnut, but I would run pretty far for a Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut! That is, of course, if I were a runner - which I'm not. You get the point though, cake doughnuts are just, well . . . cakey, but soft, sweet, yeast-risen doughnuts are to-die-for. And Krispy Kreme doughnuts are the best (or at least the local favorite)!
This Saturday in Raleigh several thousand runners will participate in the Krispy Kreme Challenge - a 4 mile run with a stop for doughnuts mid-way. Runners begin at the NC State Bell Tower, run two miles to the iconic Krispy Kreme on Peace Street, eat one dozen doughnuts (that's 2,400 calories and 144 fat grams!), then run back to the Bell Tower - in less than an hour. Could you do it? A member of my family will be among the runners . . . so here's wishing him good luck!And you can find Krispy Kreme all over the globe, so the next time you're in London, check it out at Harrod's (note the HOT light!):
Or in Tokyo, where the wait is always over an hour:
Or in Brisbane,
Or Saudi Arabia, or Malaysia, etc. The point is, find the nearest store and run towards it!
