I am not a lover of junk food. Chocolate does not fall into that category as chocolate is a food group, it is the Brown Group and is one of the largest food groups. It's the other junk food that I am not particularly fond of. I don't get really nutty about it, just certain aspects of it. I don't like fast food restaurants at all but that's just me.

As luck would have it neither of my girls can eat Mickey D's it makes them physically sick, at least in this country it does. Lily can projectile vomit like the best of them if she eats it. So we avoid these kinds of places like the plague. Another place I avoid and I don't really know why is Dunkin' Donuts. It just looks nasty to me, that and Taco Bell. I call it Taco Hell and I have never ever been to one.

I have been reading my friend Trish's blog and when Hailey goes to get chemo they sometimes stop and get Krispy Kreme doughnuts, warm crispy Kreme Doughnuts. Now I have no idea why these appealed to me but they did. I have seen box upon box of these donuts in Publix and walked right by them but the idea of them being served warm straight from the fryer, I like to think of it as an oven cos I detest fried anything, made me yearn for one.

I went online to see if such a place even existed down here and it did so yesterday morning I bundled the girls up from the elements, it was 47 dgerees here and off we trekked to Krispy Kreme. I wouldn't tell them where we were going but asked them to look for a big red K. Lily announced in a sad sap sort of voice, Oh good grief are we going to K-mart. I have never ever shopped at Kmart so why she thought that, I have no idea and it made me laugh. They were so excited when we pulled into the car park. They were also floored that I had taken them to a doughnut shop.

WE can't believe our luck, Mummy has gone off of her rocker.

who drinks water with a doughnut? yuck.
Why yes, I did eat 2, who's counting? 
Cheers, Mummy
The verdict: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts served hot are the best doughnuts ever. They are light, fluffy and of course really fresh. They put that other so called donut shop to shame. We are converts. It might be another 10 years before I eat another one but they are delicious. A friend of mine asked if we bought a dozen? A dozen, what on earth am I going to do with 12 doughnuts....sell them?

I'm with you on the fast food & confess I have never had a K donut! Funny thing tho Popster is a fast food junkie! Standing joke in our house is his "not so secret" addiction!

Mmm...Krispy Kreme donuts are ah-ma-zing! They don't have stores in Canada any longer but I did try one bite at Costco the other day and it took every ounce of willpower not to buy a box!

Glad you enjoyed them!

I miss those. Not something I ate very often, but when all of a sudden you can't get them you crave them. Glad the girls got to experience that first hand!

We don't go to any fast food places or eat much junk food (I have a SAHD who loves to cook!). But what a weakness! We know they are yummy so we stay away! Every once in a while someone at work brings in a dozen and I have to have one - don't tell Ford!!

Are you'all traveling near us anytime? We need our fix of those two cutie girls!
