Alaska is Missing Donuts

October 7, 2013

Crazy thought, I know. But there aren’t any.

There is no Dunkin’ Donuts.

There is no Shipley’s.

There is no Krispy Kreme. But, people do buy several dozen at a time in Seattle and then sell them on the roadside in Anchorage.

This makes me really depressed. I would love nothing more than to go where a Hot Now sign beckons me in, and a sugary sweet smell makes me drool.

Anyways, on a “things Alaska has that the lower 48 doesn’t” list, we do still have thriving blockbuster’s.

So, uhh, at least we’ve got movies?

    Ben says that he remembers when the first Krispy Kreme opened in Seattle. He said that kids would go and buy 8 dozen at a time and sell them at school in the morning. lol

      Apparently, a lot of people will bring up Krispy Kreme from Seattle and sell them on the roadside in Anchorage. We’ve seen it a few times, but I’ve always been too nervous to buy a box: I have no idea how old the donuts are!

    Maybe your dad and I should move up there and open a Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts, or better yet…a Tim Horton Donuts!
