  3. I grew up in Virginia. We used to sell a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts for $1.50 as a fundraiser for swim team! Now they’re the gournet doughnut!

  4. The day before Thanksgiving I perform the official calorie exorcism that lasts until new years day. I drive out the calories and cholesterol from all homemade chocolate chip cookies.

    I grew up in Virginia too, and had to sell some Krispy Kreme donuts for a high school fundraiser. I picked up my boxes and brought them home. I figured I would buy one box for home, and proceeded to have just one donut as a treat. It just melted in my mouth, and I grabbed another…next thing you know the whole dozen has been eaten, and I’m in absolute digestive misery. Years later, when Krispy Kreme opened stores in New York, I decided to have one for the first time since that day, just for old times’ sake. That first bite — rich donut part, a little greasy, suspended in that sugar glaze — proved to be too much, and I realized I’m off them for life.

  6. Skipwith – you are a lightweight! I would eat a dozen after swim practice, no problem, with no ill effects. I can still put down 2-3 easily and I’m 44. yikes

  7. Yeah, and why couldn’t I have had the same result with alcohol? It took about a gazillion “I can’t believe I consumed *that much* last night…my head…I’m in agony…never again.” experiences to get to the same, sated point.

  8. Our Southern Cal. H.S. fundraiser consisted of cases and cases of $1 candy bars – either almond and crispy. I was my own best customer.
    Oh, yes – that, and lo-cal calendars…
