Opening just in time for my visit during the
conference (you have registered
already, haven't you?)...
A Krispy Kreme in London. Intriguingly, it's going to be at Harrod's. Irony of the proletariat-ish American donut making its London debut among the bourgeois?
See here for example.
For those who don't know Krispy Kreme, they have to be the best doughnuts on Earth. Especially, mainly, if they are hot and fresh. They simply melt in your mouth then.
You may be wondering why I write about Krispy Kremes and Starbucks and the like. I don't even frequent either place all that often (Krispy Kreme almost never, actually). But I love the pop culture aspect of both chains.
You know, it's a good thing I work at home. Even the one day I was downtown (Chicago) last week, I felt compelled to buy a Starbucks Frapuccino. Put me someplace where I'd have even easier access to Starbucks and Krispy Kreme, and it would be very very bad news.
