A Memory Book on Krispy Kreme's 75th Birthday

Happy 75th Birthday Krispy Kreme! I have lots of fond memories tied to that place. For about four or five years, it was our family tradition to swing by Krispy Kreme for a doughnut after church. I was hoping to just cultivate a happy Sunday memory, even if it was about unhealthy food, but we generally eat pretty healthy, so there is grace for Sunday doughnuts. The kids started calling Sunday "Doughnut Day" rather than Sunday or "Church Day", though, which I thought was kinda cute, but it also made me feel a little guilty.

Unfortunately, we've discovered that two in our tribe can't have gluten anymore, so the Sunday tradition has died. I've made gluten-free doughnut holes, but they are the cakey-kind, nothing like the melt-in-your-mouth Krispy Kremes. Here's that recipe.

Here are a few photo memories below. 

There are two huge birthday weekend celebrations going on today or tomorrow. Here are the details: 

Friday, July 13, 7-10 pm: Krispy Kreme Block Party & Glaze the Nation Tour Stop at Trade Street & 6th Street

Saturday, July 14, 9 am-noon: Family Fan Fest at Old Salem
FREE with Hot Glazed Doughnuts at every event!

Come out and celebrate the Krispy Kreme doughnut in this fun-filled, family weekend of fun! At 10 am on Saturday, a permanent Krispy Kreme marker will be dedicated in Old Salem to commemorate the location of the first Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.

Cheerwine Doughnut (limited edition) Kinda good, kinda weird.
