Krispy Kreme Makes Homer Simpson Jealous, Delivers Massive Box Of 2,400 Doughnuts

So you picked up a dozen tasty doughnuts for the office this morning; that probably made you feel like a pretty good co-worker, right? Well Krispy Kreme officially put your measly 12 toruses of delicious dough to shame, by delivering a single, gigantic box of 2,400 doughnuts to a public relations firm in the United Kingdom.

According to USA Today, the super-sized doughnut delivery required eight employees to cary and would cost an estimated $2,600 in the United States.

The colossal box was part of a Twitter competition meant to promote the company’s new “Krispy Kreme Occasions” division that customizes doughnuts for corporate events and even weddings.

After the delivery was complete – and some of the doughnuts were consumed – the folks at 360 Resourcing Solutions fittingly tweeted a photo of Homer Simpson’s go-to salivating pose.

Krispy Kreme officials say there are no plans to recreate the massive box in the U.S. or elsewhere in the U.K.

But for consumers in the U.K. thinking of inviting 1,000 of their closes friends to chow-down, Krispy Kreme will sell 100 of their Double-Dozen boxes of doughnuts for $2,600.
