Krispy Kreme Field Trip today!

If you are  familiar with Krispy Kreme donuts, you know that when the "red light" is on that means that fresh hot donuts are ready and waiting.  At our local Krispy Kreme when the red light is on and its between 5 am and 10am or 5 pm and 10 pm you can go in and get a FREE hot glazed donut!!

If you aren't familiar with Krispy Kreme, they started in North Carolina in 1937.

If you're familiar with the Weight Watchers point system, a donut is worth about 6-10 points depending on which donut(s) you eat.

If you're not familiar with Weight Watchers, then to put it into non-Weight Watchers terms, they equal about the same as an entire healthy dinner.   I ate the donut that I made and ran 4 miles today, so hopefully that equaled out somehow.

Getting ready for the tour.

Going behind the scenes.

Where donuts are" birthed"...The machine on the right, behind the lady, is where the ingredients are placed and mixed.

This is the second stage where the dough is made into "rings".

We all got to dip glazed donuts into chocolate and sprinkles.  Ah.  Another reason I homeschool!

Here is Levi and the donut he "made".  I made one too and it was sooooo awesome.

Here's Sophia's.

Levi is really into knights now.  Ever since we studied Queen Elizabeth I and went online to Usborned-uplinks and found the jousting website. 

A knight with cowboy boots, like the boy in Shiela Walsh's book. "Will, God's Mighty Warrior" that Levi reads every day.


  1. That does look like a fun field trip! Enjoyed reading about it and your top 10 highlights from the past year (another post - that's how I found you this morning).
