Perth, Australia sets new world record for Krispy Kreme sales

Jump to last reply

Provincial Perth is no more.

I'm the first to admit that I like the occasional doughnut, usually limiting myself to the odd chocolate iced custard or glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme on my annual visit to the US...but it'll be a cold day in Perth before I get desperate enough to queue for one.

The local news reported that some 14 million calories left Perth's first Krispy Kreme store on its first day of business.

Not too many years ago the same thing happened in Denver, when Krispy Kreme opened its first store. People would drive up to Denver from Colorado Springs, making a 120 mile round trip for...doughnuts. They eventually opened a store in Colorado Springs, but it closed a few years later, as did its competitor LaMar's.

Funny how we always want what we can't have, and then we don't want it anymore.
