Due to library reading club coupons, we found ourselves for the first time taking the incredibly informative field trip to uncover the hidden world of Krispy Kreme (herein after, “Crispy Cream” just to be annoying) donut making. Fluffy was totally enthralled by the donut making machine. She loved watching the donuts swim their way along the hot oil through the “ferris wheel for donuts” (donut flipper) and on under the curtain of molten glaze.
But at some point, you’ve got to try your free donut while wearing your free hat. I have to say, Crispy Cream (nope, nope, definitely more irritating that way) has got me figured out as a parent. I almost paid for second donuts just to watch the kids eat them because they were so cute. Almost.
Now, I never got a manual, but I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to rank your children. Unless you’re Amy Chua. But when they’re all doing the same activity in the same head gear, isn’t it perfectly natural to put their pictures up side by side and question, who ate it best? What do you think? I have my favorite shot, but I want to hear from some of you first.
We have Fluffy getting cutesy with the hat and flirting with the judges before going in for the coy, look-away bite. Note the non-traditional orientation of the hat. She’s not afraid to set trends.
Then old blue-eyes goes for the mouth-smash. The method Peppers is using is based on the false assumption that the more surface area of donut touches your face, the more donut will enter your mouth. Excellent cheek action, in my opinion.
And finally, Salty demonstrates the corner nibble, a misnomer really, but you get the idea. Of the three he’s definitely displaying the product the best.
I think we can all agree that’s good eatin’. And now before you jet off to the Kremery to make your own donut eating face, a reminder to take the baby wipes with you for the all done fingers.
