York experienced a sugar rush on Friday (November 4) as the city’s first Krispy Kreme doughnut shop opened its doors.

First to go through them at 10am was Amelia, 22, from York. She was rewarded with a coveted Krispy Kreme Gold Card, entitling her to share a complimentary double dozen every month for a year.

She said: “As soon as I heard that a new Krispy Kreme store was opening at York Designer Outlet I wanted to try to be the first in store.

“It’s a fantastic feeling to be the first in line and to get my hands on a Krispy Kreme Gold Card – I’m getting married next year, so plan on sharing the doughnuts with my family and friends at the wedding.”

Mmm… doughnuts, as Homer Simpson would say.
