    I've had Krispy Creams. In California and in Florida. I remember in California they had a drive through and it would be a really long line at night.

    I finally tasted them. Meh! They are OK, but I don't know what all the fuzz is about. It's light and sugary, but I've had light and sugary doughnuts at bakeries here in Thailand that are just as good as Krispy Cream.

    Krispy Cream doughnuts are the iPhone of doughnuts.

    and BTW, this is exactly why my primary school students are so fucking FAT. I got grade 5 students that can barely make it up the stairs. And they keep feeding them the deep fried shit at school, McDOnalds and now the Krispy Cream Burger.

    Do thai kids eat Thai food anymore?

    After the Krispy Cream burger, they can have deep fried oreos for dessert



    and wash it down with my american favorite, the deep fried Coke

    When Ksipy Kreme opened its first store in Northern California there were long lines also. I'll be in Bangkok tomorrow, if there's no line I'll buy some.

    From the OP's first link:
    "In the days to come, we expect to see hundreds of brand-conscious Bangkokians carrying Krispy Kreme boxes through the streets as they show off their ability to keep up with the latest dining trends".
    God save us from trendy, brand-conscious types.

    Those are just fantastic! I could eat them until I'm sick.

    I went to Krispy Kreme in Tokyo. They are great donuts but I certainly wouldn't queue for them.
    The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.

    Plenty of Krispy Kreme outlets in the UK now, AO, in town centres, shopping centres and stations - even some Tesco stores sell them! If they're fresh, they're okay.

    what was the name of the bun? Ah Roti Boy, out of Malaysia. Lines around the block for a months. But long gone and forgotten, save the copy cats in cheap malls. Lets see what happens. How much are they here? Got to be near a buck a doughnut.

    Little Chef's become almost trendy, Getorf. Did you hear about the TV series where Heston Blumenthal, the 'mad scientist' chef, was sent in to transform several Little Chef branches? Quite entertaining.
    According to the wife's friends the latest trendy bags to have in Thailand are Cath Kidston ones, over-priced, retro designs from the UK. Wish I'd thought of them though, seem to be selling like hot cakes.
