Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Touching on doughnuts, it seems to be a new food trend among youngster in our country. Doughnuts outlets in the country namely KL grows like mushroom. It is usually a must to visit in shopping complex, just to look around for new flavours if any and to see the freshly bake doughnuts. Though the flavoured doughnuts price ranges from 2.20 to 2.80 per piece, people are still willingly wait for long queue to buy one to satisfy their taste bud.
And today, the topic will be on Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Its first outlet was in Berjaya Times Square. Today, it opens its door to customers at Mid Valley and Sunway Pyramid as well. I saw the store at Mid Valley and since everybody was saying that its doughnuts is the King of All Doughnuts, why don't give a try. Let's see what I had bought, erm to be precise my sister. Haha.
Chocolate Iced Glazed
Powdered strawberry filled
Chocolate Iced Custard Filled
Cappuccino Kreme
Almon all over
New York Cheesecake
Glazed Vanilla Cake
Forgot what it is. Lemon Filled Glazed?
Green Tea Twist
Chocolate Glazed Cake
Maple Iced Glazed (should be)
A dozen of pre-assorted variety costs RM 23.90. For the Raya promotion, there is a free half dozen pre-assorted varieties with the purchase of any one dozen assorted doughnuts. To my surprise is hald dozen costs Rm 16.80 (around that price). It's very logical to buy 1 dozen + 1/2 dozen free at RM 23.80 than to buy only half dozen at RM 16.80. The menu board at the Mid Valley outlet does not dispaly the price for half dozen and not even a single piece. They expect everyone will buy one dozen instead. The staff were not friendly at all. With the lack of information on the prices, it is common for customers to re-confirm the prices. They seem very unfriendly to me when I inquired about the price. In addition, there was Raya promotion which gives 18 doughnuts at RM 23.80. Clarification is of course needed otherwise later will be scammed. I must say that the doughnuts is not as nice as being said or promoted around the blogs. You guys remember during the launching of its first outlet at Times Square where people were crazily queuing up early in the morning to haunt for the doughnuts. Most of the blogs even labeled it as King of all Doughnuts. I must strongly object the nickname given as the taste was so so only. J Co Donuts followed by Big Apple Donuts are better than Krispy Kreme. I think this will be the first and the last time I will buy Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I do not want to spent money on over rated and over priced common doughnuts. What say you?

I didn't visit that outlet when in Midvalley last month. No more space in my stomach for those donuts. What a shame.

The first time I tried Krispy Kreme is when I was on holiday in Sydney!
It was like the best doughnuts ever! Albeit the fact that I was extremely hungry at that time. There was once I chowed down 6 doughnuts at one go. Crazy much. Lol. Great that there is a outlet in Msia now, at least that will satisfy my KK cravings for now. =)

the KK in times square is sweeter than in MV.

actually, you should only eat the original glaze ones.. it's still the best than the other ones.

and.. when my friend and i went to times square and MV.. we wanted to buy, but they were handing out FREE KK original glaze!!

i used to think that Big apples was nice but quality has gone down.

ai wei said...

they are really sweet but i do love the original glazing type with a cuppa of black coffee.

prefer the big apple to jco to krispy kreme, except for their original glazed type

based on the comments, it seems i should have try original glazed..

well, as mentioned, they dun even have the pricing for single piece and the promotion i bought is fancy assorted doughnuts..

perhaps, i should give a try of original glazed and a cup of coffee next time.. hope it will not be a disappointing one..

btw, my hypothesis is correct.. most of us are eating doughnuts.. trend or really like it? i dun think one piece will make your stomach full

Sad to see this because until now I still have not tried the highly rated Krispy Kreme donuts! Must visit one of those shopping centers and get myself stuffed some doughnuts! Haha... :)

are you that poor to afford these donuts? the reason why krispy kreme is so famous is because of their original glazed donuts . and u didnt even order that yet you're here to judge as if you can make better ones. shut up before judging. theres a reason why krispy kreme is so hyped about all over the world. did u see jco all over the internet about how yummy it is? no. why krispy kreme? because its yummy. because its up to the level expected. so i would suggest u to STFU before making yourself look like a dumb dog barking everywhere. :)
