The queue when Krispy Creme first came to Singapore, no joke. They have got three outlets in Singapore and prices start from S$2.60 for their original glazed doughnuts, slightly priced higher compared to other countries. It would be considered pricey for a glazed doughnut.

I tried the other doughnuts and found them too sweet for my liking. The glazed one is good however; do eat in moderation as you might just find yourself going for one after another. As for me, one or two is good enough as it will get really sweet and you might get sick of the taste.

Aside from doughnuts, they have got coffee too. Sounds like a good combination for your morning breakfast or snack. Yes, their original glazed doughnuts. Just that for now.

Before Krispy Kreme opened its first outlet in Singapore, I have tried their donuts when I was in Australia and I fell in love with their original glazed donuts. Since then, I made it a point to have Krispy Kreme whenever I can when I was overseas. Now that Krispy Kreme is available at Tangs Orchard, I was overjoyed.

I have tried other flavors like Red Velvet, New York cheesecake, cookies and cream, just to name a few. But none were as good as their Original glazed ones. They literally melt in your mouth and it was totally worth all the calories. The other flavors were either too sweet or tasted too artificial. Each donut costs about $2.60 each and it is considered very expensive, especially when our neighboring countries like Malaysia and Thailand selling Krispy Kreme for less than SGD2.

Well, now that we have Krispy Kreme in Singapore, the urge to have one seemed to have died down. I believe most Singaporeans feel the same way as there really isn't much of a queue for the donuts now.

When Krispy Kreme announced their opening in Singapore, I thought, "This is it. This is the end of skinny people in Singapore." Having tried their donuts overseas, I have since been a fan of Krispy Kreme donuts.

I am an avid donut-lover. Warning though: I pretty much only go for sugar donuts. I've tried the flavoured ones and I personally think only their original is worth the craze. It is practically foodgasm... it's soft and moist and it's like heaven in a bite. I would say that it's really sweet and people who don't have a sweet tooth might hate it.

The donuts are really crazily overpriced though... I love them but it's not gonna be a weekly indulgence though. If you're really crazy over the donuts, you should probably head to Malaysia to get them.

Basically with Krispy Kreme, you either love it or hate it.

I first tried Krispy Kreme when my sister brought it home from Bangkok. So when I heard that they were coming to Singapore, I was super excited. But, my excitement died when I heard how long the queue was.

I finally managed to get my original glazed krispy kreme fix a few weeks later when the craze subsided and it didn't disappoint. Maybe it's because I was dying to eat it but I don't get why people say it's not nice...because it really is! I can't say the same for the other flavours because I've not personally tried it and I've heard mixed reviews about them.

Though they're more expensive than your usual neighbourhood bakeries, I think it's worth it.

Given the hype surrounding the opening of Krispy Kreme's outlet in Singapore, I find that the donuts are just a little too overpriced.

The queues are ridiculously long even during off peak hours but I find that KK has adapted well to this huge demand by providing menus along the queue so that you can immediately place your order once its your turn to do so, causing little hassle.

Take nothing away from the doughnuts though for they were the best doughnuts I have ever tasted. The sugar glazed donuts are definitely a treat and though I had half a dozen of them to myself, I could really do with more. I most definitely will get more doughnuts from KK but that will be once the long queues die down.

I don't know what's up with us Singaporeans going crazy every time some foreign brand opens up a stall here ala Tim Ho Wan. The week Krispy Kreme opened in Singapore, the line was a good 100 metres long!

Come on people, its not THAT good. No donut can possibly be worth queueing more than 30 minutes for. Ok maybe its easy for me to say because I had already tried it once in KL.

That being said, I was quite blown away the first time I ate KK. IMO, only the regular sugar glazed donut lives up to the hype. It looks unassuming at first impressions - a donut with a thin, translucent sugar glaze coating over it. Nothing fancy about it, but damn does it taste good.

Moral of the story: To enjoy it, give it a few months to let the queue die down, and go in with zero expectations.
