Sugar High Tuesday! These hot and sweet babies arrived in the office just after lunch, hence we had a chance to pre-taste them. Based on earlier emails and messages I have been receiving, there's definitely a buzz going on about Krispy Kreme's opening on 10am, 27 April, 2009 at Berjaya Times Square. For more details, go see the Facebook group.
Eager beavers stand to win prizes - the first person gets the golden ticket with 1 year's supply of the original glazed doughnuts. Second and third in line, get 6 months and 3 months' supply of the sugar coated treats while those from the fourth to hundredth get 1 month's supply. I can imagine people camping out outside the store on the 26 April to score that prize!
Tastewise, they were pillowly soft and very sweet. Nuke them in the microwave for 8 seconds and they become even softer. We liked them with a cup of hot unsweetened coffee to balance out the sweet taste and best of all, unlike other doughnut brands, the glaze sticks to the doughnut vs your lips, when you eat them.
