You know it is going to be a great day when you start your morning with the smell of freshly baked donuts and piping hot fresh-brewed coffee. And when that donut happens to be a Krispy Kreme Donut – well – let’s just say that happiness lasts the whole day through (at least for me it did!).
Two weeks ago, I was invited to join several local bloggers for a relaxing and informative Blogger Brunch at the new Krispy Kreme in Havertown, PA. Located in the Manoa Shopping Center, the store is a great place to grab a coffee and donut (or dozen) and sit back, relax and maybe even take advantage of the store’s free Wi-Fi! The donut selection is ahhhh-mazing and we were lucky enough to sample an assortment of flavors while visiting. Glazed Sour Cream is my absolute favorite (second only to the Original Glazed) – but I was also especially impressed with the Key Lime Cheesecake. Hey – I can honestly say there wasn’t a single flavor that I did not like. I was also excited to learn that they carry Frozen Hot Chocolate and Berry Chillers, which are both super yummy and wonderfully refreshing on a hot day. You will find tea, lattes and other assorted beverages on the menu as well.
Some facts I learned while visiting the Havertown location:
- There are 646 Krispy Kreme locations worldwide in 21 different countries (I had no idea!!!)
- Two cousins from the Philadelphia area, Brian Zaslow and Keith Morgan are responsible for bringing back Krispy Kreme to the Philadelphia area (WOOT! Big cheers for this awesome duo!!!) – Their plan is to open more stores in the PA, Delaware and New Jersey areas in the near future.
- Krispy Kreme Philly locations are NUT FREE and TRANS-FAT FREE ( Huge bonus for those with tree nut allergies or looking for nut free snacks to bring to share at parties and gatherings)
- Krispy Kreme has some great Fundraising opportunities which are a “sweet” way to make some money for your organization. – who wouldn’t love some coffee and donuts? Best of all you can make 50% or more return on your fundraisers!
I must say – I had a wonderful time hanging out at this bright, cheery new location with some of my favorite blogger friends. It is such a great place to meet up and chat or get some work done while enjoying some fresh brewed coffee. Noshing on Krispy Kreme donuts was such a treat and I am looking forward to returning soon with my kids during their summer break for a special end of school snack.
Many thanks to Krispy Kreme for treating us to a lovely morning. My kids were absolutely crazy over their complimentary after school snack (complete with Krispy Kreme hats!). I am truly looking forward to keeping everyone up to date on all of the latest happenings at Krispy Kreme!
