Krispy Kreme donuts in Adelaide

#1 Post by Howie » Fri Mar 14, 2008 11:16 am

okay well not exactly... but there's a way you can get your hands on some..

If you goto the IGA on North Terrace (palais opposite RAH), and put an order down before a Thursday, they'll send it over from interstate ready to be picked up on Monday.

Cost is $18.50 dozen plain glazed... and $22.50 (i think) dozen for others.

tell em you heard it on sensational-adelaide.com first :D

haha.. i'm flattered SRW.

The prices aren't unreasonable considering how much Gourmet Glaze costs.

It's an ongoing thing.. spoke to the manager about it, and he'll do this so long as there's a demand for them.

There's meant to be two KK stores opening up in Adelaide later in the year. One on Rundle and another small one in the last retail tennancy at the airport (next to the western newsagent) And I stress evidently. They have been very coy in releasing details about their store openings, but they know the demand is here.

can't believe how popular KK donuts are - You can almost see a persons arteries getting harder while eating one!
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

This is, undoubtedly, the best thread in the world; nay, the universe.

Knighthood for Howie.

About bloody time they opened more stores. There's one opening here in Brisbane very soon. Can't wait.

Apparently the KK parent company in the USA expanded very quickly after going public and then ran into financial troubles so sold the Australian business to some private investors who are not into franchising.

When I was in Adelaide, if someone from work was passing through Sydney airport they'd grab a couple of boxes to bring back. :) All thanks to the american lady at the company who introduced us to the wonder of KK after we'd all been wondering what the hell the Beastie Boys were rapping about :)

I flew back in from Melbourne tonight and noticed that the retail space ajacent to the newsagency in the airport terminal is all boarded up. Looks like KK's at the airport isnt too far away :D

There's one near my work. They're over-priced and over-rated in my opinion.

Isn't there one of these in the Airport? I've seen a bunch of guys and girls coming out of there and catching the J1 to Adelaide with ARMFULLS of boxes of these things.
