Well, you seem to be in a pretty small minority, at least in this country!

KK is the fastest-growing purveyor of gut bombs, outpacing those sugarheads at Dunkin' Donuts by about three to one! It's a cultish thing.....

It sounds like maybe you've only tried their "original" glazed donut, perhaps? While quite tasty, it is only one of a whole bunch of flab-inducers that they fry up daily, most of them mighty yummy IMO. You can live off of three Krispy Kremes and H20 for a day or so, easily. The key thing is not to do that...!

(Classic content: donuts = vintage American junk food)

Cheers & sugar buzzes,

Greg Parker Ann Arbor, MI USA (No KK outlet here yet, but we finally got three Paneras... Honey, pass me the brioche, wontcha?)

(Not to be confused with Panteras...)

(Athough, they're kind of an interesting car, but I digress....).
