Krispy Kreme Doughnuts – Palmetto Bay, Florida

There used to be a few Krispy Kreme Doughnut shops within a few miles of my home but they closed up a few years back. If you wanna go back before that, Mr. Donut and Velvet Creme also used to be within driving distance to me (that’s right, some old school doughnut mentions). I’m a fan of the Krispy Kreme shop experience because I can go in and buy a couple of doughnuts and be done with it. If I go to the supermarket and buy any of the packages, a minimum of 4 to 6 doughnuts will always end up hard as a rock. And no coffee or cafe con leche dipping can save them.

Krispy Kreme Shop

I knew this new location had opened up in Palmetto Bay but I totally forget about it until I was driving down US1. Everyone jocks on the “Hot Now” sign which you do find at this location.  I don’t see some extensive contraption baking the doughnuts so I’m gonna go ahead and assume they found some way to make them minus all of that production. I’m also not the doughnut police so I’m not about to question them about it. I ordered 2 doughnuts, one regular and chocolate.

Krispy Kreme Original

The original just melted in my mouth, just as expected. The chocolate while not old, had the consistency of what you’d find in the supermarket.

Krispy Kreme Chocolate

The moral of this story? Stick to the original and get two while you’re at it.

    Thanks for the heads up. I remember Mr. Donut and Velvet Creme was an establishment. It was sad to see them go. It perplexes me how a donut as bad and underwhelming as Dunkin’s has wiped out all competition.
