Boo! It's Halloween Time!

Sugary fried dough-licious

Time to fatten up with the help of holiday treats in preparation for a long, cold winter!

Mmmm, doughnuts

The new Krispy Kreme in Penn Station opened last Saturday, though I completely missed that in my post-Madonna stupor. Bez and I stopped by yesterday to pick up some fried dough-liciousness, hers in the form of a New York Cheesecake doughnut, mine in the form of a plain Jack o' Lantern. The cheesecake had a creamy filling and was sugary delicious; mine had incredibly sweet icing that turned my mouth orange. Mmmm, doughnuts....between this and Doughnut Plant goodies at Joe Grand Central, something bad could really go down here with my waistline.

Cheesecake + Doughnut

Speaking of Halloween treats, we have it on good word that our favorite Treats Truck will begin selling Halloween treats today. Now, there was an "incident" that occurred last week involving the jr. pumpkins pies and someone I let go in front of me (I was waiting on Brownie) who bought all the remaining pies AFTER asking me if I was planning on getting one. It is not the nicest thing to turn to the person, who just let you go ahead of her, ask "were you planning on getting those," have them say "Yes," and proceed to buy all the rest on the truck. If that person is so inclined to smack you and cause a scene, she may. Luckily, I like Kim and her truck, so I will just wait around the corner.

I can't stand Krispy Kremes yet I am strangely compelled by that jack o' lantern doughnut...It's so freakin cute!

you keep saying this "can't stand" and "Krispy Kremes" in the same sentence. it makes me question our friendship.

You have to love a Krispy Creme when the "hot now" sign on. It melts in your mouth!

I would have smacked the pumpkin pie lady. I went by the Treats Truck yesterday and she had the little pies, chocolate cupcakes with candy corn, candy corn rice krispie treats, and cookies in such shapes and pumpkins, ghosts and black cats. So cute!
