**- Krispy Kreme Doughnuts -** @ Harrods, Knightsbridge London

Yes.. We went UK (London and Manchaster), Paris and Barcelona on Sept 2005... And remember that someone did hinted that we're in the Europe... hahaha... it's TRUE :)

Ok..Let's go into the main biz.. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! One of the best doughnuts in the world.. Mister Donut (we tried in Bangkok) Rank number 2... Dunkin Donut number 3..... and so on. Heard from a friend that if you want to operate Krispy Kreme in Malaysia, the condition is you must have at least USD 30 million net worth!! Check it out at http://www.krispykreme.com/




Krisp Kreme @ Harrods, London !



Wide Selection of Doughnuts.. You name it they have it :)
Their Signature Doughnut is Original Glazed.



The Doughnuts are produced on the spot ! To ensure that it is "branded and standard".



Yes..queued for almost 25 mins and finally purchased one DOZEN Donuts which costs GBP 9.60 (almost RM70.00)...hehe...while waiting in the queue, they actually distributed the donuts(not sample, whole donuts!!) for FREE...yes yes...very good service !



We purchased 10 pcs of Original Glazed and 2 pcs of Chocolate (one with hole and another without hole) ... These donuts are really in a whole league of their own. The first thing that hits you is the wonderfull aroma from the freshly baked donuts. Then on first bite of this light, crispy yet soft donut, you get the sweet, melt in your mouth flavours from the sugar icing stuffed donut. Eating these donuts are like eating a slice of heaven!!! Help!! I have krispy kreme cravings!!!



The singature treat - Original Glazed



And this Hummer!! We saw it at Toys Dept in Harrods..and it cost GBP 5,000 (RM 35,000) . And Beckham has one of this at home for his children.


More posts from Europe coming soon. Stay Tuned!

Wow! Finally an update. Looks like everyone in London is eating krispy kreme doughnuts, looks so good. I thought someone tried to bring the franchise once to Mid Valley but it crashed and burnt already?

wah wah, if krispy kreme operates in Malaysia. For sure i will support coz from the posting i can see that the icing of the doughnuts. Have you guys heard of 4 Seasons Chinese Rest in London before ? It's also one of the best food in UK which received lots of awards every year.

Makan kings, kindly take note.

Cheers.

I saw them giving out free doughnuts to people in the line too in Harrods last year! Now, that's customer service! Doubt they'll be able to do it here. Everyone would take the free doughnut then disappear from the queue! :p Great to see you back, btw!

I got really crazy the first time I had krispy kremes. Think I got sick the next day! Hmmm...they are a little too sweet for my taste...it does go well with coffee though :P

I'm not sure if krispy kreme will survive in Malaysia (espeically with the price and all). They're in a different league compared to those sold by the roadside kuih-muih stalls but I'm sure people will compared the prices.

Yes..If Malaysia they give free sample.. sure a lot people come and grab it and then CABUT..

USD 30 million net worth to run this franchise.. only TSVT can consider about this investment.

If Krispy Kreme can survive in Jakarta (even expanding..they have opened up like 3 more stores in the last few months), I think they should be able to open some stores in KL...and it's not European prices in Jakarta too..about RM20 for a dozen, not too bad, altho of course more expensive than roadside kuih. Any takers???

Omg... so based from the comments here it seems that there is no branch of Kripy Kreme in Malaysia yet?? That is just sad! I'm moving to KL next week from Phils and 2 KK branches just opened in Manila last December! Some one take a franchise in Malaysia pls!!
