I have always had a major sweet tooth. When I was growing up my mother did not believe in purchasing sweets except on special occasions. For an extra special treat she would purchase a dozen fresh, hot Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Yum! My mouth watered as I waited to snatch one from the box. The minute she turned her back I would attempt to snag another doughnut. I mean, really, we didn’t want them to go stale. Surely we needed to devour them while they were in their warm gooey state. Ah! The memories. The summer time was the best. There was no school and if we went swimming we would sometimes follow up with a doughnut chaser. My parents weren’t big on travel so this was as close to a vacation as I got. In January of this year I got to attend the doughnut lovers trip of a lifetime. I was invited by Krispy Kreme to visit their headquarters in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and make my own doughnuts. It made up for all the staycations during my childhood.
If you are feeling the crunch of the recession (and aren’t most of us?), this is the season to plan a staycation. Staycations can be almost as fun as traveling and you don’t have to worry about your luggage being lost at the airport or kids being carsick in the back seat. To make the most of this staycation, Krispy Kreme has designed two new Key Lime doughnuts to tempt our taste buds. They will only be available for a limited time, April 22nd through June 23rd so be sure to pick one up soon. Each Krispy Kreme location will also be hosting a Staycation Prize Pack you can enter to win containing the following items:
One free Krispy Kreme iced beverage a week for a year; one free dozen doughnuts; flip flops; sunscreen; Krispy Kreme Staycation postcards; key lime scented air freshener- redeemable for one free doughnut; Krispy Kreme Staycation beach towel; beach ball; nail file; and a Krispy Kreme Staycation “Do Not Disturb” sign. Each prize pack is valued at $350 dollars.
I’m thrilled to say I am also giving away a Krispy Kreme staycation package. Who wouldn’t want some Krispy Kreme yumminess in their life?
One person will receive a Krispy Kreme Staycation package valued at $350. 00.
