The Hot Light


Krispy Kreme is officially on my black list! Wyatt and I went to KK Thursday while the hot light was on and we eagerly waited (maybe it was just me "eagerly waiting") in line to receive our free hot doughnuts. Finally, after a few minutes of drooling at the scrumptious doughnuts on the conveyor belt - we were handed a bit-size sample of what was at one point a hot doughnut. The thing was probably the equivalent to the size of 1/16th of a doughnut. Maybe I have been misguided my whole life but isn't the point of the "Hot Light" to inform passer-byers that hot doughnuts are made and if they choose they can have a free tasty sample?!!!! The KK worker said that it was a national implementation and that all KK's have discontinued the free samples. Isn't that against all of Krispy Kreme's values?!!! Then he tried to make it sound like we were lucky because that KK franchise still gave out samples...LAME samples! I'm not so sure if his story of a "company wide policy" checks out or not, my guess is that his franchise is just CHEAP and doesn't want to give away free doughnuts to free loaders. I admit, I have been known to be a KK free loader from time to time. But I have also bought my fair share of doughnuts other times to make up the difference. So I have decided to boycott KK until the next time I go there... Okay, let's be honest, as heart-breaking news as it is to never taste of a free hot doughnut again...I just can't stay away.

You seem to know all the freebie deals in town. Maybe you should start a side note on your blog about free food for all!

I would like to try the theory that all KK's are now not giving away freebies, but that would go against my new resolve (yet again) to eat less.

Perhaps they are concerned about the caloric intake of their customers and decided that portion control is in their [said customers] best interest. Okay, maybe not.
