mmm… Doughnuts!

Last night I was invited to the “VIP preview party” at the new Krispy Kreme store in Manchester. When we approached the new store, opposite the Trafford Centre, I felt like I was in the states (although I have never been) – The store was big, white and flat roofed, with a big Krispy Kreme neon sign (when the lights on, it means they are making fresh doughnuts – yum!) Socio Rehab supplied doughnut inspired cocktails, which made me wish I wasn’t driving, and you got to try as many doughnuts as you like – literally, I ate like half my body weight in doughnuts! They were yummy. The best bit was getting a fresh, hot dougnut straight off the conveyor belt. It has to be seen to be believed, as you walk in the store, you can see fresh dougnuts being made on this automated production line, dough, proofing, frying (in vegetable shortening so they are good for you – yeah right) – it tasted delicious! There’s also a drive thru part as well!! It opens on Friday. We also got two free boxes as we left – I took them into work this morning, and handed them out wearing my Krispy Kreme hat – I think all the sugar was making me giddy.

Anyway, I would thoroughly recommend it – although.. with doughnuts and Nigabba’s fudge (thanks Alex, I love that one)you’re going to have to roll me around after xmas!!
