Krispy Kreme has all sorts of problems

September 23, 2008

Krispy Kremes doughnuts, a perennial “wall-street favorite,” according to reuters, has been experiencing severe financial trouble recently as a result of rising fuel and commodity costs, in addition to growing concerns over obesity.

Their doughnuts are essentially little discs of corn responsible for swelling huge swaths of the population, and yet they seem so charmingly American. Maybe if we are to be defending American food culture, this is the kind of thing we are going to find.
