    for our friends in Japan

    I thought y'all would get a kick out of this.
    It is from the International Association of Penturners forum. Hank Lee spends much of his time in Japan and comes back to the U.S. on occasion.

    I think we have a KK about 2 blocks from here. I have high cholesterol so I take my fish oil & abstain from such things as KK.

    This is hilarious. My wife and I stumbled across the Krispy Kreme in Tokyo's Ginza district as we were ending a night out with some friends. In the second pic you can see a lady handing out free donuts to the customers waiting in line. I held out that evening for a scoop of ice cream on a waffle.

    Cheers.

    They also make a mean honey bun! When I was in college a dive near campus had honey bun ice cream. They would slap the honey bun on the grill and get it nice and hot and then put a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. It's as close to heaven as you can get.

    Not a fan of KK... no substance to them... I prefer a good heavy cake donut from Dunkin'

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    We have one in Shinjuku, maybe a 20 minute walk from here. I've see line ups that are over an hour long............ for donuts........

    I certainly don't have that kind of time on my hands

    This man has obviously never eaten a Krispy Kreme donut.

    You sir are incorrect, I have, but I don't see any difference between the KK donuts and the ones Costco make

    Well...Costco doesn't give away free ones when you're waiting in line.

    Actually, I haven't had the Costco donuts, but aside from freshness, I don't quite understand the allure of Krispy Kreme.
