For 85 years, Krispy Kreme has delighted doughnut lovers with its melt-in-your-mouth, sugary confections. Fans watch for the “Hot Light,” knowing that when it’s on, a freshly made, hot-off-the line bite of scrumptiousness is awaiting them when they walk in the door.

Started in Winston-Salem, there are now more than 30 retail locations statewide, not to mention locations in several partner retailers and in more than 30 countries. Just about anywhere you travel, you can enjoy that reliable homemade goodness. The original glazed doughnut is iconic, but there are plenty of other options like chocolate iced glazed, chocolate iced custard filled, glazed lemon filled, glazed blueberry cake, cinnamon bun, and so much more to please your taste buds.

“The doughnuts are like heaven in a cloud of sweet goodness.”

—DaleAnn Plyler, Monroe, a member of Union Power Cooperative
