Spending the morning with Krispy Kreme® Doughnuts. Well, someone had to do it...


Can you smell these Krispy Kreme® Doughnuts?  I am glad to share that they are opening more locations on the East Coast!!!




This morning I was invited to a Blogger Brunch at the new Havertown, Pennsylvania location on West Chester Pike.  We were treated to samples of a variety of their fresh bakery treats, and the new Key Lime variety. That was my favorite.



Right now they have a Key Lime Staycation sweepstakes going on until May 18, 2012. go to KeyLimeStaycation.com for all the details.  You can also follow the Krispy Kreme Cruiser® as it travels all over the USA. Visit Krispy Kreme Cruiser to see where they are headed next.

There are 3 ways to raise funds with Krispy Kreme® Doughnut Sales:

Fundraising Certificates-each certificate is redeemable for one dozen Original Glazed

Partnership Cards-with the purchase of the card you can received one dozen Original® glazed doughnuts Free when you purchase any dozen doughnuts.

Doughnut Sales-sell doughnuts at your event. Minimum of 25 dozen to get the fundraising price and you sell for a profit. Choice of Original® Glazed or Chocolate Iced Dozen, Glazed Filled Dozen.





At the Blogger Brunch we learned about the history of Krispy Kreme®. Who started Krispy Kreme?  Glad you asked, Vernon Rudolph did. He bought a secret yeast raised doughnut recipe from a French chef from New Orleans.  He set up his shop in a rented building and began selling them in 1937 to local grocery stores.  People began stopping by his building and asked to buy the hot doughnuts, and he began selling the doughnuts directly to customers from his building.

In 1973 he passed away and the companies growth slowed and was reorganized for sale to Beatrice Foods company in 1976. In 1982 a small group of associates, their early franchisees, bought Krispy Kreme® back and began to expand.  They now have 646 locations world wide and in 21 different countries. That's comfort food away from home!
 
 




Krispy Kreme® Philly is planning to open about 21 stores in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties in the next few years.  Aren't you happy about that? I am!  Here is something else to be happy about, Krispy Kreme® Philly doughnuts are nut free, trans fat free, and they are Kosher certified. They even have a nutritional book available in stores if you want to have a read.

My thoughts on the blogger brunch:

It was nice to meet up with bloggers I knew, and some I knew from blogging groups but had not met before.

The store is new, clean and has a steady stream of customers.

The event coordinators were extremely friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable.

The associates of the store were friendly, polite, and hard working. They let us take photos and brought us samples of tasty products from Krispy Kreme®.

 (this is only my second Vine post, but it was fun to watch them making doughnuts)










Upon our departure we were given a fresh hot dozen Original® Glazed Doughnuts to take home to our families.  Good thing we can roll up the car windows or cars would have followed us all home.




We were also given some great "swag" A shirt and coffee mug to remember our fun tasty day.




I know, now we all want to buy Krispy Kreme ® Doughnuts. Look for a location near you!

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.
