  1. My favorite over-the-top characterization following Krispy Kreme’s 1996 debut in New York appeared in GQ magazine: “The Appalachian love child of the souffle and the croissant.”
    btw. the “Donut Queen” button isn’t a company-authorized item — it came off a gift shop rack.

  2. Thank you so much for writing this “This Month,” Bridget. A fascinating story about a delicious little food!
