The first time I heard about Krispy Kreme was from Oprah Winfrey’s talk show. She was giving away boxes of donuts to her audience, mostly overweight, fat women. They were in throes of orgasmic ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the doughnuts.
So, I thought it must be really, really good. At that time, the only donuts we have in our country is Dunkin Donut or the mak cik from the pasar malam cucur keria.
Then, we have Missy Donut which eventually closed shop. After that, Big Apple and then, J Co. And I was still waiting for the Krispy Kreme.
I finally get a taste of Krispy Kreme from Midvalley during my last trip to KL and I have to tell you that it is just another donuts. It is no better than J Co or Big Apple. Between J Co and Big Apple, I prefer J Co simply because the only J Co we have in Penang is very far away from my home. J Co is in Queensbay while Big Apple is easily availble near my home in Gurney Plaza.
Now, that I have tasted Krispy Kreme, I no longer believe a thing on Oprah Winfrey. Not that I like her or watch her talk show…
My little boy doesn’t like donuts. But he likes these Mickey bread which is available from De De Bakery at the basement of Gurney Plaza. It is a less oily and cuter than donuts.
Meanwhile, I like my donut earrings which costs RM12, bought from the Penang flea market from Upper Penang Road, available only on Sundays.
