The US News & World Report published an article last week entitled 15 Companies That Might Not Survive 2009. One on the list is Krispy Kreme. I’m groaning over this one. Please, don’t let Krispy Kreme go!
I remember the first hot glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut that crossed my lips. Wow. It seems sacriligeous to say it was heavenly, but it was. My wife and I have tried to recreate the experience with the boxes of doughnuts from Food Lion, tossing a pair on a plate then microwaving them just long enough to be hot. It’s OK, but it is just not the same.
Hopefully Krispy Kreme will survive, as well as the other companies on US News’ list. And please don’t tell my doctor I like these things.
