A North Carolina Delicacy: The Cheerwine Doughnut

Krispy-Kreme Cheerwine Doughnut

This is being touted as a real North Carolina doughnut: a Krispy Kreme doughnut (born in NC) with Cheerwine filling. If you don’t know what Cheerwine is, it’s a weird cherry-tasting soda created in Salisbury, NC.

As someone who used to eat two Krispy-Kremes (glazed) for lunch each day in her high school cafeteria, and who would be happy never to see another Krispy-Kreme again, this looks gross. But I guess it is quintessentially North Carolinian.

    Wow. You were able to buy Krispy Kreme donuts in your school cafeteria? And I thought we had non-nutritious food in *our* school cafeteria circa 1990…

    Obviously, I understand the allure. I’ve been meaning to get diabetes. 🙂

    Not only could we buy them, they were the most attractive food option. And I mean every day.
