Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Few things inspire a greater reaction in St. Louis sugar fiends than a lit-up "HOT NOW" sign glowing outside a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Founded in 1937 when Vernon Rudolph purchased a top-secret yeast-raised donut recipe from a New Orleans chef, the donut company set its sites on world domination in the 1990s and embarked upon a mass expansion. The company now boasts more than 700 locations in 21 countries including Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand. It's best known for the "Original Glazed" donut, an ethereally light creation that seems to dissolve into sticky sweet thin air on the tongue. Most locations offer a drive-thru, making it all too easy to roll through for a hot dozen and then make a quick getaway. Krispy Kreme is easy to find on Voice Places.
