Krispy Kreme, one of the most well known doughnut chains internationally, is finally making their presence felt in Singapore! Come Saturday 12th October 2013, the brand will open its first store at Tangs Orchard Basement 1. I was lazing about on the couch, watching some tv and trying to iron out the sleep in my eyes when there were knocks on the door. I guessed it would be Krispy Kreme as they had told me prior, but it was so early in the morning that I never imagined having doughnuts for breakfast!
The 75 year old doughnut company will feature 16 flavours in its 1, 200 square foot sit in cafe. The Original Glazed Doughnut will be available in addition to flavours such as the Cookie Crunch, Almond All Over, New York Cheesecake, Chocolate Dream Cake and Red Velvet to name a few.
The doughnut tradition at Krispy Kreme comes with a good dose of sharing the love. From now till October, Krispy Kreme will be giving away 100, 000 (One Hundred Thousand) of their delectable Original Glazed Doughnuts. I caught them in NUS the other day, giving away 10, 000 doughnuts to hungry students who formed snaking queues. More will be available at offices, schools and the streets of Orchard Road!
Fans of Krispy Kreme can even win up to a year’s supply of Krispy Kreme donughts! “Die-hard fans who get in line ahead of the Krispy
Kreme Grand Opening at Tangs Orchard stand to win coveted Golden, Silver and Bronze Tickets”. Mark your calendars and be prepared!
The Original Glazed Doughnut will be available at $2.60 each or $23.40 for a dozen.
It was my first time having a piece of Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnut. I took the first bite, revelled in the play of glazed, crusty sweetness and crispy yet fluffy slightly savoury doughnut ring. The Original Glazed was a perfect crunch. It was good, and would be even better hot (8 second Microwave instructions available on the box)! I thought I would stop at one, and had half more. Now, I’m craving for another but I recommend high restraint. Luckily for the rest of the doughnuts, I shared them with neighbours and friends. Goes well with tea or coffee, to tone down the cloud nine sweetness.
Thank you Krispy Kreme for the doughnuts.
