Krispy Kreme fans, put a star next to October 12 on your calendar. That’s when the popular doughnut chain from the US opens its first store here, at Tangs Orchard. No one should miss these sugary rings of joy.
Fans (the Simply Her team included) adore the Original Glazed Doughnut ($2.60 each or $23.40 for 12) for its fluff y, golden-brown, deep-fried dough coated in a crisp shell of meltin-the-mouth, snow-white glaze. Other popular flavours include New York Cheesecake and Cappucino Franco.
To celebrate, have a doughnut party – starring Krispy Kreme, of course – with these supporting treats from shops within walking distance of the outlet.
