Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. This week in honor of the eclipse, we want to bring you something special. Something that is so out of this world that mom had to make pre-arrangements last week so she could partake in this glory. Pre-arrangements as in she walked extra – snorts with piggy laughter. And I don’t blame her because this was well worth the extra calories.
We’ve all heard of Krispy Kreme. It’s a doughnut chain that makes awesome doughnuts of every kind imaginable. And when the HOT doughnut sign is on, it means they have hot glazed doughnuts coming off of the conveyor. Hot glazed doughnuts that will melt in your mouth from being so fabulous. Okay give me a second – I need a moment.
Okay I’m good. With the eclipse coming this week, just for last weekend their regular glaze went chocolate. Can you imagine hot doughnuts going through a waterfall of fabulously hot chocolate? Trust me. It sounds much better than what it looks. But you can see from the pictures what I’m talking about.
Now do you see the hot chocolate glazed doughnuts in the box? Yes trust me on this. Mom/dad said they tasted so much better than what they look in the box – ha! Their thoughts about the first time chocolate eclipse doughnuts? They come off the conveyor hot. They are great but messy. I mean messy. Mom told daddy that she thought she was going to have to hose him down before he got into the Jeep. That kind of messy. But good. And mom said she preferred them once they went cold. They weren’t as messy then – which she loved. Either way, it was a once in a lifetime treat all the way around. And yeah, mom/dad didn’t forget about me. They brought me one of my favorites – an apple fritter. Now *that’s* what I’m talking about!

Mom said she wanted to get smothered and covered in the chocolate waterfall. She even splurged and had some of those doughnuts. She said they were heavenly. XOXO – Bacon

Mom said they were awesome and she preferred them when they cooled down a bit. Dad had chocolate all over the place – it was hilarious. XOXO – Bacon

I was actually disappointed the last time I had KK. Hardly any filling inside the jelly donut. But these look divine.

We don’t have any Krispy Kreme here on the island but the last time we took the ferry to the mainland we drove an hour out of the way to go and try our first KK We agreed on a doz. and to eat them while on the 1.5 hr ferry ride home, Ohhhhhhhhhh…….. They never made it out of the parking lot LOL!! Chocolate ones would be so awesome but I agree with Bacon, Apple Fritters are my fav, but I’ll take any kk any time! ❤

They are very sinful indeed. They are light and fluffy and the regular glazed hot out of the oil – they melt in your mouth… well not that I would know. I’m just repeating what daddy says. XOXO – Bacon
