Krispy Kreme

[English] plural Krispy Kremes

A doughnut and coffee chain. Their hot glazed doughnuts enjoyed a cult status during 2003 when various Hollywood stars announced that they could not live without them. One commentator refers to them as the "best and most luscious doughnuts on earth" and styles range from "powdered blueberry filled" to "maple glazed". They have been available in the US since 1937 but did not spread to elsewhere in the world until 2002, when franchise stores opened in Canada, Australia and the UK and doubtless the spread will continue. The doughnuts are "baked on the premises" and the ingredients are fresh.
