I don't know where the KK location is in Orlando, although I've heard that there is one nearby !!! I'm a dunkin donuts kind of gal, m'self, but it's only b/c I've never had a KK!

Just so you know, I see you're from the Cape -- there are rumors that there will be some new KK locations here in MA (128 belt somewhere, also I heard Quincy), and supposedly there will be a location in RI (Warwick, possibly).... Keep your eyes peeled! I hear that when they put the "HOT" sign in the window, cars practically go off the road for them.

No idea about KK in Orlando, but they are in NYC, and when I lived in Rochester, we got one. They are without a doubt the best donuts in the world. A must try!

Unfortunately, the rumor about there being a new KK store in Rhode Island aren't true. They were ready to move into Cranston, but somehow Dunkin' Donuts was able to keep them out. Dunkin' Donuts has way too much POWER around here.

There's a KK store in Kissimmee, about 10 minutes outside of Disney, right on Hwy 192. You can get them hot when the light is on in the window!

I know the teens would love one for breakfast (o.k., I would, too).

I laughed out loud when I read this. One. HA! I believe anyone that has eaten 'one' would want at least 2 or 3!:D :D

I too laughed out loud--ONE??? Like the last chip in the bag!
Yes I heard that the Dolphin had these, going to make a special trip while down there in April just for them..Hear they are wonderful! Join me for some Java and a KK??

And yes, I just heard yesterday that they are going to build a new one on East Main Street in Hyannis, across from the brew pub! Look out DD youv'e got competition coming to the Cape!
Heard they are already in Boston..downtown I think.. I have an old friend, an old roommate of mine that is a district manager of some up in Buffalo NY..Loves her Job!!

Now if someone could just please tell me what time to get to Tubbi's so we can put about a dozen of these puppies away for our own personal use, I'd be forever grateful.

There is nothing that compares to a hot Krispy Kreme doughnut! Here in Virginia you can buy them in the grocery stores, gas stations, but nothing comes close to one when the neon is flashing! My husband and I can devour a dozen in one sitting! Once you guys try one, ya'll will never look back.:p

Here is a giggle for you ~ in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada (near Toronto) we got the FIRST Canadian Krispy Kreme shop a couple months ago. The day it openned, they had to have cops directing traffic. The walk-in line was 4 hours long ~ FOR A DONUT PEOPLE! Four days after it openned, I was driving by. They posted 4 hours wait, but I saw the drive thru ~ went to it, waiting 25 minutes, got 4 dozen donuts, gave 3 dozen to dd's school class and all the staff! VERY POPULAR MOM THAT WEEK! They are very good donuts, light and fluffy.

No Krispy Kremes where I live, so a friend fed-exed us some to the office one day from San Diego. They were pretty good for day old donuts. I got on the internet and found several KK locations along our route to WDW. We're going to stop for donuts while driving down in March. Too funny!:D

02-07-2002, 10:36 AM
Was within 5 minutes of my old office, not now. I have driven by half a dozen times. They still have a tent outside and the drive thru looks silly.

I'll wait 'til my trip in March.......

I was there over Christmas and I don't remember the KK case ever being empty. THey seemed to always have more to bring out from the back. They had regular and chocolate and KK cinnamon buns. All were very yummy.

Sarah and Mike , we used to be neighbors, I go to the Henrietta NY location for my KK fix!

02-07-2002, 03:27 PM
This is to funny. My daughter and I are driving to WDW in April and I bought The book Along interstate 75 by Dave Hunter. It lets you know at each exit what food,lodging,and gas are available. after reading on here so many rav reviews about krispy kream I went through the book to x off all the spots so i'll at least stop a one!!!! My daughter can't beleive i'd waste precious time to stop and get a donut. :pinkbounc

If you have never had KK and you only from Tubbi's, you really are not experiencing the treat. You need to go to the KK store and get hot ones! OH DEAR! The Hot Lite is ON!

I can't tell you where to get KK doughnuts in DW, but I can give you a few tips on them since we have them here in St. Louis. You must get them when they are hot out of the oven or else they will taste just like any other doughnut. Also, I am a small girl and I can eat around 5 and still be hungry. They are really light and so you can eat one in a few nibbles! My friend brought me a case when they first opened and they were a few hours old and I didn't know what the big deal was with them until I got one fresh. Major difference!
Yummy! :)
Also make sure you get glazed. They are the best and the most popular. The other ones really aren't that great IMO.

I live in Havelock, NC and Krispy Kreams are all over (well the next town). They're best put in the microwave for 8 seconds. Be careful because I think they add an addictive ingredent. ENJOY!

I see that you are from Cape Cod. They are opening a Krispy Kreme shop in my hometown of Medford, MA (just a few miles north of Boston) in April (or thereabouts). I know it's a bit of a hike from the Cape, but if you are ever heading north of Boston, you can get a hot Krispy Kreme after April.

Yes, hot Krispy Kreme's are better than room temperature Krispy Kreme's, but a room temperature Krispy Kreme is better than no Krispy Kreme. So, get up early and get them while you are down there.

Oh, and here are a couple of tips for those of you who don't live near Krispy Kremes but visit a store in another city and want to bring them home. They freeze well--I bring them home from New York City whenever I go--at least two dozen of them. If you nuke them in the microwave for 10 seconds (longer if they are frozen), it's almost as good as getting a hot one from the store.

There is nothing quite like a hot and dripping Krispy Kreme original glazed.

I live near Charleston, SC where there has always been a KK for as long as I can remember. However, my family was always partial to Dunkin Donuts, so I never had a "hot" one until recently. I think of all the years I wasted.

One word of KK caution - around here, schools sell KK donuts as a fund raiser. There is no comparison to those donuts and the ones you can get in the case, let alone to a hot, fresh donut. They are very heavily glazed and nothing light or fresh about them.

From 1978 - 2002, I drove by the store thinking - EEEWWW Krispy Kreme Donuts, those are so nasty. Little did I know. Now I have to make a special trip and see if the "Hot Donuts Now" sign is lit whenever I'm actually in Charleston.

I live in NC, we have had KK for as long as I can remember. I agree they are addictive, I love the chocolate iced glazed. My advice is to look up Krispy Kreme on the web and drive to one of their locations. They have a wide variety of selections, creme filled, jelly filled, lemon filled, powdered, glazed, chocolate, cinnamon, cake and they always have something new they're trying. Our store is open really late, it's not hard to find a time when the HOT sign is on. Call the location, they can tell you. They also have great coffee there, they sell bags of it. And of course they have milk, there's nothing like ice cold milk and a KK.

I love these KK posts. ... They've started my day off with a smile. Also being from the deep south like the last few posters, I grew up taking the "hot & fresh" sign for granted... Yes, these doughnuts really are everywhere down here... In fact there is a man who comes into our pet store once a week just like clockwork selling them for his church. This post has made me remember to be thankful for the small things.

Fantasia 73, RI is definitely getting a KK, check out near the Burger King below Garden City in Cranston!! I believe that their date for opening is Spring 2003. They had a truck there for a few days when they broke ground in Dec.it was selling donuts and backed up traffic onto the highway!Joan:Pinkbounc

I was at the S/D for week over new years and never found them out of KK at tubbi's. I stopped in there as early as 8am and as late as 10am and always got my donut :D
