As soon as I walked in, I was offered any drink of my choice. I have to be honest. I've only gone to Krispy Kreme for one thing before--their glazed doughnuts. So I had no idea what drink to order. I ask for a suggestion and one of the ladies helping at the event suggested the frozen hot chocolate. Yes please! The drink was soooo good! It really did taste like frozen hot chocolate!
Throughout the night, they were bringing around doughnuts to sample. Not just little pieces. But whole doughnuts. And when they brought out a tray of hot, fresh glazed doughnuts, I about died. If you've never had a hot Krispy Kreme doughnut, you need to try one. They literally melt in your mouth. Sooo good!
They also came around with samples of drinks. I tried an Orange Your Glad fruity chiller. Yum! I also saw some of the kremey drinks. I'd like to try one of those I think, on my next stop to Krispy Kreme!
As for doughnuts, they also were bringing around some other classics like jelly filled as well as their seasonal doughnuts like Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Doughnut, Dark Chocolate Caramel Kreme doughnut, and the Caramel Chocolate Chip Cake Doughnut (the one I had below).
And yes, I had to have another hot, fresh glazed one. (and at this point I had to ask for some milk. I need milk with my hot doughnuts!) Doughnuts for dinner!
In the store, you could see the doughnuts on the line. If the workers saw one that wasn't correct (like the whiter one below), they would remove it.
I learned some fun facts during the event.
1) Did you know that there is a sign in the Krispy Kreme windows that lights up to tell you when the doughnuts are hot and fresh? (from 6am-11am and 6pm-11pm)
2) There is an app you can get for your phone that will tell you when the hot and fresh light is on.
3) Each employee has to have one doughnut every day that they work (its for quality control but sounds like a perk to me!)
4) I never noticed, but on the box it tells you how to make your doughnuts taste hot and fresh...microwave them for 8 seconds!
Everyone who was helping out was so incredibly friendly and nice. It was such a great event. Thank you, Colleen, for setting it up!
And as a parting gift, we got to take home a box of two doughnuts (which I will be saving for my treat with my chocolate milk after my long run tomorrow!)
I can't wait for the next Yelp event!
