Happy Birthday Krispy Kreme

POST #    1148

Today is Krispy Kreme's 67th birthday. I'm not sure if they are giving away birthday doughnuts, but they should! Especially to bloggers that seem to love their product and talk about their tasty delights (that sounds really dirty). Mmm...I want some birthday doughnuts. In lieu of that, I would also accept a "Friend of the Month" listing. I mean, really...I eat your product enough, no?

I digress. So everyone should go to their local Krispy Kreme and buy a doughnut and wish them a happy birthday. Sounds like fun, no? Who's up for it? I think it could be a lot of fun. Since I didn't ride my bike to work anyway, damn rain, I might as well pack on some calories.

For those that want to know more about Krispy Kreme, here is some information from an e-mail:

Krispy Kreme is 67 years old and still growing! So much has happened since Vernon Rudolph, our founder, sold the first Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnuts on July 13, 1937. We've gone from one little store with a hole cut in the wall for taking orders to more than 375 retail stores worldwide. Thanks to you, we hope to have many, many more years to come!

Full disclosure - I'm a stockholder. Not many, maybe like 40 or so shares...but I hear good things about their shareholder's meeting (free doughnuts). What can I say, when I believe in a product, I'll buy its stock.

Are you having 67 donuts to celebrates? Or a donut a day for 67 days?

that is both an interesting and disturbing idea. it's also one that i would consider (the one a day) if i lived closer to a krispy kreme. it would have been like super size me.

I had two krispy kreme donuts yesterday in celebration of their birthday. That, and I was stuck at a gas station waiting for the rain to stop because I foolishly went to work on the motorcycle yesterday.
