Really, Krispy Kreme?
Caramel apple and cotton candy flavored doughnuts? Is that the best Krispy Kreme can come up with to represent the great county fairs across our great nation? No one goes to county fairs for caramel apples and cotton candy.
Today, county fairs are all about (cue heavy metal guitar riffs) deep fried candy, cookies, vegetables, sandwiches, breakfast cereals, and processed meats. Yeow! (end heavy metal guitar riffs)
Krispy Kreme’s Caramel Apple Cake Doughnut is a glazed, apple-flavored cake doughnut that’s topped with caramel icing. The Cotton Candy Doughnut is an Original Glazed doughnut dipped in blue cotton candy sugar.
Both will be available at participating Krispy Kreme locations from August 20-September 30.

Although I love caffeine, I’m not a coffee person because coffee farts turn me off to the stuff. But if you enjoy a freshly brewed cup of java and you happen to find yourself at a Krispy Kreme (and you’re too lazy to drive to the nearest Starbucks), they’re offering a brand new coffee lineup. Krispy Kreme’s new Signature Coffee comes in three varieties:
Krispy Kreme Signature House Blend – a blend of South and Central American coffee
Krispy Kreme Signature Dark Roast – a blend of African, Indonesian, and Central American coffee beans
Krispy Kreme Signature House Decaf – a Central and South American decaffeinated blend
All three varieties are made using 100% Arabica beans. A cup of Krispy Kreme’s new coffee retails for $1.72 for a small, $1.93 for a medium, and $2.04 for a large.

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we like.
There’s an energy drink that comes in a bottle that looks like a fire extinguisher. Does it also come in a bigger size that looks like a fire hydrant? (via Caffeine-A-Holic)
Dr Pepper with real sugar isn’t really impressive. But Dr Pepper curing an illness would be. (via Gigi Reviews)
Japan now has Orange M&M’s. It makes sense since Japan is also known for having people with orange hair. (via Japanese Snack Reviews)
Necco knows how to tug at the tummies of little girls with their Twilight Sweethearts candies, which have saying like “Bite Me”, “Live 4 Ever” and “Team EC” printed on them. I thought Sweethearts candies were gross by themselves, but it turns out, with the right sayings on them, they get even more disgusting. (via Candyblog)
Krispy Kreme has a Limited Edition Cheerwine Kreme Filled Doughnut. I have no clue what Cheerwine is and I’m too lazy to look it up on Wikipedia, so I’m going to assume, if I drink it, it will turn my face red and make a drunk Lindsay Lohan appear to be better looking than she really is.

This week, Krispy Kreme introduced a line of mini doughnuts that have all the sweet, addictive goodness of their regular doughnuts, but at half the size. The mini doughnuts come in three varieties: original glazed, chocolate glazed and chocolate glazed with sprinkles.
Why did you have to do this Krispy Kreme? It’s so hard to prevent myself from eating just one of your regular doughnuts. Sure it’s probably a way to help sell your doughnuts during these hard economic times, but if I eat one of your mini doughnuts, I’ll think it’ll be okay to stuff my face with another since two of them would equal about one of your regular doughnuts. Unfortunately that extra doughnut could lead to a domino effect, which could cause me to go through an entire box faster than one left in the middle of a police station’s break room.
Thank goodness the only Krispy Kreme location in this state is on another island.
