I’m a huge fan of Krispy Kreme, I don’t like any other doughnuts. Anyone who has ever tried their doughnuts have been eager for Krispy Kreme to arrive in the North East. Thanks to Klee, I got the opportunity to go to their Hotlight store launch at Metrocentre in Gateshead last week. Can’t say no to donuts and a glass of bubbly, and learn how to do a “doughnut” dance. Going to try those moves next time I hit the dancefloor! I knew it would be a fun, relaxed and easy-going event. Now, I know that Krispy Kreme isn’t new to the majority of people who is reading this but this is the first store in the north east, and a milestone 50th UK branch. I had troubles trying to find my way there but we got there in the end. The store which also has a drive-thru service is located in the new complex called MetrOasis which is situated outside of the Metrocentre, between the red and yellow carpark.
Metrocentre is Europe’s largest shopping and leisure centre. It used to have an indoor theme park and a big arcade. That has been replaced with Odeon/IMAX and lots of restaurants including the ever popular Nandos, Wagamamas, Frankie and Benny’s and Yo! Sushi.
I treated myself and my family to a double dozen, alongside a glass of Tru Blood* which is a blood orange sparkly drink. This drink isn’t from Krispy Kreme but it is available from Cyber Candy. Tru Blood is an official HBO Licensed product, a product that is inspired by the tv series, True Blood. I’ve never watched it – should I start watching it? Is it good?
