The shame is that Krispy Kreme closed its doors in my town while it introduced the addictive joys of Hot Doughnuts Now to urban areas on both coasts. Sure, we get KK's trucked in and deposited at every convenience store in the area, but it isn't the same thing. I could drive to two of the other Tri-Cities to buy KK's, but why bother? I boycott them locally.
But, another tradition of our trips to Florida is stopping at the Krispy Kreme at Daytona Beach. While it's not on the beach, it's between the beach and the on-ramp to I-4, a bit before the raceway. Since we've been so doughnut deprived, we bought a dozen. Crullers are Ian's favorite. I like the plain glazed best, but the neon sign (hot doughnuts now) was not on, so we avoided buying two dozen. They offered a key lime creme filled doughnut which I got, and also a New York Cheesecake creme filled, though I don't think I actually ate one of those. I took one or two bites of several doughnuts until I had my fill. Eventually we threw two-thirds of them away; a shame, really.
In my experience, key lime creme filled doughnuts are rare. Besides the KK at Daytona, I've found them one other place, at the KK in Wilmington, NC. I could not resist it. Another that I had to buy purely for it's beauty was a glazed, chocolate-dipped and covered with sprinkles selection.
Ian calls it the Cleveland Brown's doughnut. Whereas I thought it was delightfully sporting traditional Thanksgiving colors. Thankfully, there was no turkey creme filled doughnut, though a cranberry creme filled would be alright.
