    Somehow Krispie Kremes have wheedled there way into more fundraisers than you can shake a stick at. This whole harebrained scheme was probably cooked up by their promotion department.

    The thing that gets me is, the whole allure and delight of eating a Krispie Kreme is that they are hot, fresh, and melt in you mouth. What's so special about eating one of these donuts when it's not fresh? And eating one after another after running a mile sounds idiotic beyond comprehension.
    Have you ever had a not fresh KK donut? *drool* Still almost perfect.
    In college, my dorm room faced Krispy Kreme. Seriously not even a quarter of a mile away. The hot now sign came on at 6am and 6pm. You could smell the sweetness in the dorm!

    Yes, I've had a not fresh Krispie Kreme. They are nothing special

    My favorite donut is the granulated sugar kind, the others are just sickeningly sweet to my tastes. Just love granulated sugar donuts, although I generally avoid them for my ultimate well being...

    I think they did one in Greenville this year too. The teacher who does yearbook, her son went to NCSU, which is where the got the idea from.

    I'm looking forward to it, but also secretly hoping it rains!

    Update (again): Spoke with student with diabetes. He is NOT eating the donuts. WOOHOO. And he'll probably walk instead of run. Even better!

    Whoo hoo ! I'm very protective of my diabetic. Whenever their are little parties involving food I cringe. But he's really responsible and knows what to eat and what not to eat.

    Eating donuts is bad for everyone actually. Everyone should be responsible about what they eat. This nation needs a food revolution and cultural turnabout if we are to avoid a health calamity for the next generation...

    Good news- only one person got sick, and she never actually vomited, she just gagged. I think they raised about $1000.

    So glad to hear it! I am happy that your diabetic student seems to have some good judgment, also. I am sure that it is due to your diligent teaching, so kudos to you for that!
