Early Krispy Kreme Ad

I found this ad in the back of the 1943 edition of The Lamp, the student yearbook from the Bowman Gray School of Medicine (now the Wake Forest School of Medicine). At the time, Krispy Kreme was just a few years old and still had just a single store on South Main Street in Winston-Salem.

Were the donuts really “Different,” as the ad claims? I don’t think anyone would dispute that they were tasty and satisfying.
