    Krispy Kreme - Bangkokians line up like lambs for the slaughter

    I heard the average wait in line was 3 hours.

    When I see very large Thai people now I just say 'Krispy Kreme'.

    Free sugary fried dough - Crowds line up in Bangkok

    Video of the line is here:

    I saw their full page advert in that 'Guru' magazine that comes with the BKK Post (you know, the one with all the potty mouth writers) and wondered - what's so special about those things then? And I'm still wondering. Are they radically different to Dunkin' Donuts?

    And so Thailand comes waddling into the developed world.

    GOML - check out the links. There's a doughnut burger. Like a bacon butty really. But in a bagel. But the bagel's a doughnut, not a bagel.

    Hang on, I'll fetch it.

    Check it:



    I get the gist from the site that this is a US variation (aberration!)

    The question is - would you do it?

    I might.

    Depends.

    My Thai friends have been talking about the arrival of Krispy Kreme for weeks. I have no idea why; none of them have ever eaten their doughnuts before. They must have had one hell of an advertizing campaign.

    they're meant to do delectable when warm and apparently they melt in your mouth but i assume they still harden your arteries dough.

    Taking a young lady there on a date would probably go down well at the moment!

    Its like a Thai steak, versus a marbled Angus steak when it comes to comparing Krispy Kreme to Mr. Doughnut, or Dunkin. They are damned expensive though.

    Cheap trash donuts are all the same. Gimme the offerings of a nice mom and pop German bakery anyday.

    I got addicted to KK in Greensboro, North Carolina. One of the big shops with the donut factory in full view. Ironically enough, it was right on my route home from the organic food co-op I was a member of and did all my shopping at.

    If you're gonna eat sugary shit, an original glazed KK donut fresh off the line is pretty damn good.

    Somehow don't think it'd be the same here though.
