    6 krispy kremes in one day is not krispy kreme in middle america. it is now krispy kreme in your middle roll (belly).

    seriously, that’s a bit much for male and/or female.

    your sugar must have jumped thru the roof.

    i certainly hope you washed them down with diet soda.

    Maybe what you are eating is really Boston Creme flavored Entenmann’s, from your bag of jelly beans.

    The only good thing Entemanns makes is their chocolate chip cookies. I could probably go through a whole box if I was really stressed. Otherwise, Entemanns is completely overrated.

    I’ve never been to a Krispy Kreme, there’s none where I live so I wouldn’t know if their donuts are good. I’ll take your word(s) for it though.

    Lol, the only product of theirs that I don’t like is their chocolate chip cookies.

    OneOfMany -“We have kosher Krispy Kreme where I come from, but I don’t see it much in NY. Is it a Middle American thing?”

    There’s one in Penn station with a Hechsher and plenty around L.I.

    I thought of this thread today. I was in a horrible mood so I went to Dunkin Donuts for a coffee hit. Then I couldn’t decide if I wanted a bowtie or a Boston Creme, so I got both. I felt so naseaus after but it was so worth it.

    I figure, I can’t eat this stuff for more than a week soon so I might as well get it all in now.

    This logic made me feel less guilty so I went back and got munchkins 🙂

    I bought a box of Entenmann’s Devil Food Crumb doughnuts on Monday because I really needed one. Afterward, I realized that I would be in deep doo-doo if I brought it home, so I ate the whole box. (Well, not the whole thing – I shoved some of them down some friends’ throats too.)

    oneofmany: you would be in trouble because your family doesn’t eat cholov stam and would be upset you bought that. Or another reason?

    We just went to Dunkin Donuts and bought a box of Munchkins for Shabbos so my mom doesn’t need to buy cereal.

    I’m really getting into this Pesach thing.

    This week I am spending shabbos with the bluebloods in New England. Bunch of snobs. Don’t even have krispy kreme like the civilized middle america.

    Go to civilized NYC, and let your heart enjoy NY’s Krispy Kreme’s.

    Krispe is way too sugary… so yeah if you eat 6 krispe creme in one sitting, that’s enough calories to last you 3 days. We have krispe where I live but i didn’t know NY had them. I thought NY has an obsession with Dunkin, or at least my friends do.

    My first time in a city with krispy kreme, I only knew one person in the city, and he kept cholov yisrael. So i bought a dozen and ate them myself. (true story)

    LIVEandLEARN- There are a few Krispy Kremes scattered around New York. There is one on the Amtrak level in Penn Station. I’ve never actually eaten there though. Whenever I’m in Penn I’m usually rushing to catch my train so there’s no time for donuts.

    cinderella: its worth getting there early enough to have time for donuts…

    By us they even sell them in like our supermarkets… I just walk past them. But lol actually once in high school me and my friend ditched first period to go to krispe and then my principal walked in… not a good moment let me tell you. So ever since then i’m kinda scared off krispe. Weird, i know.

    I can’t find the 8-doughnut Entenmann’s Devil Food Crumb anymore. They need to bring it back… :'(

    Hostess, which makes Drakes, went out of business. Do they own Entenmann’s too?

    Dunkin Donuts donuts are kosher everywhere, since they don’t make them in the stores.

    And who told you this?

    A dangerous half truth, rebdoniel. Please google “Franchising the Kosher Way” by R. Bendelstein, an article published on the OU website. If it seems long, you can skip right to the seventh paragraph.

    Those who go to Kosher DD aren’t getting any different donuts than from the DD without a hechsher. This is a fact.

    Those who go to Kosher DD aren’t getting any different donuts than from the DD without a hechsher. This is a fact. All of the donut mixes and products come in with Hashgacha. Basically, they dump the bags in a mixer, add water and fry or bake them up. The donuts are made in the back of the store. No treif products are used in the back of the store. In a non-kosher DD store, all the treif is only in the front. The rav told me all donuts are without a doubt kosher. Even in yenimsville and bagels are kosher. They don’t use knives to cut them but a bagel slicer. But, you can’t get them toasted due to the treif oven.

    RebD: The ingredient mix may have a reliable hechsher, but once you bake/fry/toast in a treif oven, the transfer of heat renders them nonkosher. No way of getting around that. If a store doesn’t have reliable Orthodox supervision, I’m not eating its products.

    You missed the point entirely. The ovens used for the kosher baked goods are entirely different from those used for treif, which is kept in the front of the store. They use toaster ovens for treif up front and have special ovens in the back used exclusively for the donuts and bagels and muffins.

    #1042152

    And you missed the point of hashgacha. When DD ran out of oil on a saturday night they went to a neighboring franchise for replacement oil and paid them back when they got their next shipment. When they got their hechsher they were stuck and called the rabbi to say they ran out of oil. The Rabbi was able to get them the oil they needed from another kosher place. Yes, the mixes are all kosher, but nobody franchised the cooking oil. (and that’s just what I know second hand from the mashgiachs wife, I am sure there are other issues as well).

    I doubt even Avi Weiss would eat in a DD without a hechsher.

    …unless there was some feminist reason to do so.

    Perhaps the rabbi meant that all DD’s in Brooklyn are OK for donuts since all the donuts come from one place.

    That MIGHT be acceptable. But to say that all DD’s are OK is not OK. The oils used might not be kosher, and that is just off the top of my head.

    I once went to a Starbucks and they were out of sugar.

    And I was like–there’s a supermarket next door, buy a bag of sugar! But they didn’t.
