Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Always among the last to try something new, I waited until today before finally checking out the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop that opened down the road.  It's quite the impressive place.  As you walk in the door you can see the doughnut making machine—hundreds of raw doughnuts rising as they move along towards the deep fryer, where they float partially submerged in the oil, and then are flipped so the other side gets fried.  Then up the conveyer belt and back down and through to an icing waterfall.  They offered us a fresh, hot doughnut that'd just come out of the icing.  The thing melted in my mouth.  It's a a very good first impression.  The service was fast—even on a Saturday morning—and very friendly.  We'll be back.
