KrispyKreme needs to start a franchise here in Singapore and teach this egoistic donut factory a few lessons; Efficiency for one.On Wednesday; sis and I went by Raffles City shopping mall to purchase a box of donuts she promised her colleagues...Sis said it will be a little 'crazy'. I didn't know what to expect. My jaw dropped when we got there...there was a line of 15-20 people!! The worst part is; the shop wasn't even open yet! We were there 30 minutes early; and there was a line.. NUTS!
After standing there for about an hour I began thinking in my head *I swear; I'll kill my sis if the donuts don't even taste good*
2 hours later...
yes; 2 hours...to serve 20-30 people in front of me...with freshly made donuts displayed on shelves by hardworking donut makers at the back; the 3 girls serving the main counter were slow and pouty... taking their time...throwing12 donuts into each box ...closing it and taping it down; and finally bagging it. IT was ridiculous! they were driving me crazy! 2 hours...to serve 15-20 people. Each person was only allowed 2 dozen donuts each. They even had a sign board along the queue to calm impatient customers.
Between the 3 of them standing out front; it took 6 minutes...to serve one person. To clip a couple of donuts into a box..it was completely absurd.
Well...we got to the front; $#%&*#*(!) bought the damn donuts..*excuse the language* delivered them to sis's office and went home to eat a box we bought for ourselves.
I'd give them a pat on the back for flavour variety; but it would be good if all the flavours were actually nice. *faints* They had stuff like spicy cheese; wasabi...kaya + white chocolate *shrug* Sis said the Kaya was nice; I had the mocha chocolate one...meh..nothing spectacular. Their donut making technique and style is identical to Krispy Kremes. Just thinner and messier looking. The dough was as soft; the glaze tasted the same...but...yea..2 hours? *pfft*
KrispyKreme, Get your Fat DelicIOus DonUT asses to SinGAPORE !!!
I'm sorry....you can tell I'm disturbed..I'm not a fan of long queues and being patient for a couple of inefficient people.
