This cartoon is very apropo in this society. At my Safety meetings I have to buy donuts for the workers, the record for one person is 13 donuts in 1 hour. It is hard to believe!!!!
Krispy Kreme's marketingDave Hickey

You have to give them credit, They are very creative with their marketing efforts. Nearly every gas station/convienance store near my home has a Krispy Kreme display. Saturday night, kids came to our house selling KK for a softball fund raiser. The KK boxes even said "Krispy Kreme FUNd raiser". Thank God I don't like donuts.
How'd they do that?mickey-mac

The KK phenomenon in southern California is interesting. Traditionally, doughnuts have been seen as part of the world of overweight cops, league bowlers, and construction workers. Now you'll see people from the high-rent areas like Brentwood, Beverly Hills, and Hancock Park taking them down by the box. I can't figure out how KK convinced people who wouldn't otherwise soil their digestive tracts with doughnuts to line up for KKs.

As I found out in college, Kripy Kreme's become a very solid projectile after a few days of sitting around. They get as hard as a brick and hurt like hell.

have you seen the doughnuts actually being COOKED????!!?!!!?!?!! think gobs of dough being dunked by conveyor belt into huge vats of boiling oil. it is a sight that cannot be described in words. It was not enough to keep me from eating 3 of them, but it was enough to keep me from eating them in the future.
back home there's an Indian delicacy called roti prata. it's a form of bread that's fried with LOTS of oil (I think it's actually melted butter; could be wrong) - at LEAST as much as what's used in KK doughnuts. ouch.
It wasn't the cooking that did it to me...The Walrus

...it was watching the doughnuts sliding under that waterfall of icing.

As for Indian goodies, what about my favorite--gulab jamun (sp.?). That does it! I'm off to Delhi Palace for dinner!
