krispy kreme

i'm not a fan of krispy kreme doughnuts--i think they are too sweet, and the words 'fatcake' and 'cakefat' always come to mind--but i was in burbank the other day at the crazy big box-store mecca, the empire center, which has a drive-through panda express (who gets sweet and sour chicken from a drive-up window??) and a krispy kreme shop. i was curious about the holiday-only pumpkin spice cake doughnut, and anyway, i like the chairs in the dining area.

the pumpkin spice cake doughnut is a chunk of fried cake which is subtley spiced, stupendously sweet as it's covered in that ubiquitous sugar glaze, but as it's not served warm, it's sort of like crunchy sweet lard. bleah. if these came unglazed, i'd probably like them more, but as they are, i'd leave them to the real krispy kreme fans.

Hi Santos,

Sounds interesting! I like Krispy Kremes only if they are hot...that way, I can rub off some of the glaze. I agree it can be a bit much...but don't tell anyone I said that! =)
