Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
Krispy Kreme doughnuts are frequently offered for sale in mini stores. These doughnuts may be made with kosher ingredients, but if there is no certification on the showcase assuring that the doughnuts are in fact Krispy Kreme, then one cannot eat them. There are no seals on these doughnuts, and if the owner runs out he can get different ones and claim that they are Krispy Kreme.
