Krispy Kreme Donuts: the new pasalubong ng bayan

When I was a little kid, the Pasalubong ng Bayan were donuts. Clearly this blog post isn't about the donuts from that brand, which I still appreciate to this day. 

I really hate to say it but Krispy Kreme Donuts HAS sort of become the new pasalubong ng bayan (no pun intended). I hope no donut company would kill me for associating their tagline with another brand. Haha! 

I can't help it though. Among the very few times that I went to Manila, this usually is what the people from Davao expect from me as a pasalubong. And yes, the same thing goes for me when I'm the one who's expecting for a pasalubong from Manila. Hihi! When you're at a Krispy Kreme branch, people would get the damned donuts by dozens. And I even saw one carrying around 10 boxes! He must have been going for the record!

Anyway, I heard that NCCC Mall of Davao sells Krispy Kreme donuts already. And I also heard rumors about an entire branch of it opening in the Abreeza Mall, which is set to open pretty soon. I guess there would be less Dabawenyos bringing Krispy Kreme as pasalubong from Manila when that time comes.
