Krispy Kreme Donuts




For those of you who don't live in the South, Krispy Kreme is a brand of donuts.  They're found primarily in the South, but, like kudzu, are beginning to make their way north and west.  I got my first bag of these delicious donuts in Vicksburg during my trip and devoured them that afternoon while driving north on the Natchez Trace Parkway.  The cold quart of milk rounded out my lunch that day.


Krispy Kremes look like regular donuts and come in a variety of flavors (glazed, jelly-filled, cream-filled, etc.), but they have a softer texture than most donuts.  Personally, I think they use more lard during the frying or baking process, because I could taste the fat on my tongue for several hours after I ate them.  I didn't care, though, because they were so gooooood.
