How Krispy Kreme Works

July 3, 2007 8:43 PM

I had a lot of visitors and a few reciprocal links because of my previous post about donuts, “More donuts than you can swing a stick at“. This clip is a continuation of the donut theme and gives you a look at how Krispy Kreme donuts are made.

I especially like the “glazing waterfall” (woo). I challenge you to not salivate. :mrgreen:

Donut King has a similar automated process which I’ve seen at a store once, except theirs is based on frying dollops of batter formed into donuts, and then dumping those into a bed of cinnamon and sugar mix (woo x 2). As opposed to Krispy Kreme’s where a doughy mix is allowed to rise before being fried, and then glazed over by the aforementioned “glazing waterfall”.

Whichever way they are made, me likey donuts yum yum.

    sourrain: Where do they ever hand them out for free?! Was it a special occasion or what? Is this a regular thing??? Ah what the hell, I’m in Perth – ain’t no Krispy Kreme shops here. 😛

    damion: it is very difficult not to. Heheh.

    When you go into a KK shop with the sign outside is on (HOT DONUTS NOW!); most of the time the staff will hand you a donut as u queue in line.

    yes it is free

    yes it is directly off the processing line.

    yes as far as i am aware, this is practiced in London & California. Not seen a hot donut sign out in Sydney or Melb yet but I assume it should be the same.

    Lupin: well hope they were worth the 2 hours wait. From the pic on Iz’s blog, they do look good.

    yurl: perhaps the franchise fees are too high for Perth’s population size.

    sourrain: wah. shiokness.

    herman: u salivated right?

    indra: yeah well this video isn’t available on Youtube – you can pause the clip and let it complete the download.

    As for KK I wouldn’t say they rule – I’m an equal opp donut lover. Heh.

    Lupin: Singapore’s population size is on par with Sydney’s and larger than Melbourne’s so if those two cities can have it, I don’t see why KK wouldn’t open outlets there on account of that. I think the issue is the level of competition.

    Wow I was completely transfixed watching the conveyor belt and all those doughnuts getting fried and glazed. Seriously! I wonder if there is a name for the “condition” – conveyor-belt-watching-fascination… 🙂
