Remember when the people of Adelaide would travel far and wide just to get hold of a box of Krispy Kreme donuts? Like a bunch of zombies waiting for their sugar fix, people would line up for hours just to get hold of these sweet treats. The scene is very different at the new Gouger Street store. Original Glazed donuts are being given away to passers by, and I could only see a handful of customers inside the store (although the time of evening could be part of the reason).
The highlight of this place is the gorgeous curved front counter. It’s not as large as their flagship store, but there is sufficient seating to cater for the masses.
Tonight, I ordered the Snowman. The donut was freshly made with a light fluffy texture. The icing was decadently sweet but that’s what we’ve come to expect from Krispy Kreme.
As mentioned earlier, Original Glazed donuts were being given away at the front of the store. Once inside, the service was slow. A lot of staff standing behind the counter, but very few people being served. I had to wait 5 minutes to be served and I was in front of the line. The tasty Snowman donut was some consolation to the whole experience.
