While I could maybe probably run four miles and definitely eat a dozen doughnuts, I couldn’t accomplish both in the same day, much less the same hour. That’s why it’s somewhat amazing that a two-time Krispy Kreme Challenge winner has managed to run two miles to Krispy Kreme, stop and eat 12 doughnuts, then run two more miles in only an hour. And without losing the contents of his stomach, to boot. Or not to boot. You get it.
While we’re still reeling from the revelation that Arby’s may be shorting customers on their fountain drinks, the fast food chain is doing one thing right this week — offering to give away free bacon to customers on Halloween. [More]
Want a tasty treat but don’t want to spend any money? Dust off that witch hat/set of cat ears/football jersey/train conductor outfit and head to Krispy Kreme on Halloween for a free doughnut of your choice.

We know that Friday is usually a time for upbeat thoughts as consumers’ minds turn toward frivolous weekend activities — coating the Slip’N Slide with cherry marmalade, improving your speed-run time on Half Life 2, perfecting your homebrew oxycodone recipe — but today, National Donut Day, we should all remember to pause to remember, and perhaps shed a tear, all those donuts that have perished to get us to this point. And then get free donuts while they last. [More]

Let’s face facts — If you’re reading Consumerist at all today, it’s probably while sitting bored in a half-empty office wondering why you didn’t just make this a four-day weekend like your co-workers Sue, Linda, Ted, and Steve.

And whoever that is better be hungry. [Krispy Kreme]

Krispy Kreme wants to caffeinate America. They’re best known for their light, fluffy, sugary donuts, but apparently they serve coffee too.

What’s a guy to do when his dream of stealing a Krispy Kreme truck and driving it around to hand out donuts to kids realizes his plan is full of (donut) holes? For one 42-year-old man recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), that sweet crime spree came true when Krispy Kreme got involved. Well, without the stealing part. [More]
Every time we think the fast food industry has outdone itself, that it’s introduced the pinnacle of calorie-laden, “Yes, they really did put those things together into one menu item,” we’re wrong. Something else always comes down the line to claim the throne. Introducing the latest usurper: The Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe. [More]
