"Krispy Kreme suus ubicumque inveneris." (It's a Krispy Kreme wherever you find it.)
William of Occam, Summa Logicae (circa 1325) -- a somewhat disputed passage, but one on which Krispy Kreme scholars generally agree.

Well, that could start a whole other discussion about cultural roots of diet. But I'm not responsible. I'm from the north and have just lived here for about 40 years (come to think of it, that's more than half my life :roll: ). I just try to get along and fit in. But I do draw some lines. I won't eat "country ham" -- at least not any I've ever seen. And I haven't gone for the whole deep-fried turkey yet. But life is short. Why make it also intolerable without bad food? In terms of donuts, I might have one every few months -- and then definitely not a Krispy Kreme -- or any other donut with "stuff" on it. :lol:

No need for a dedicated Krispy Kreme store. :roll: What kind of deprived areas do people live in that they can't just go into the local grocery or drug store and pick up a box of Krispy Kremes? That would be awful.
A Krispy Kreme isn't a Krispy Kreme unless the red light is on.
That is exactly right. You can't understand unless you've had one.
