Philadelphia Eagles & Wives Touchdown with Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Last month, as you know, I covered the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts opening in Center City. I told my friend Julie Dorenbos about it cause I know she’s a big fan. At the last minute she couldn’t stop by the opening event, but that night when she was honored along with bud Susie Celek by the Kisses for Kyle organization at Bar 879, I brought a dozen hot Krispy Kremes for them to enjoy along with ABC6’s Jamie Apody who was also in attendance. Jon Dorenbos tweeted this picture, and Krispy Kreme retweeted it and asked if the the duo would like to take a tour of the KK factory in the North East.

Although you might think the guys were taking it easy during the Lockout, they did put in a morning of self organized workouts. After a grueling morning of lifting, and then an hour of practicing in the sweltering heat Tuesday morning, Jon Dorenbos, Brent Celek and Todd Herremans headed over to the Mayfair KK shop, with Julie Dorenbos and Susie Celek. (Actually Jon & Julie picked me up and I went with them. I found a card that must have fallen out of his bag of tricks, in the backseat, just sayin’ cause ya know he’s a magician.) Everyone started off with the end product so they could see what they should look and taste like.

This is the all important conveyor belt with the Krispy Kreme’s rolling out of the hot fryer, cooling off and then being saturated with a coating, that some say is a mixture of sugar and undoubtedly more sugar.
Brent has the “Krispy Kreme picker upper”, and was as you will see in the video, given instructions on the art of the pick up off the conveyor belt.
Patience.


Then we headed to the back of the machine where they all participated in rolling the dough and inserting it into the doughnut making machine.

At another station the crew made Krispy Kreme, raspberry filled, Oreo cookie topping doughnuts. YUM, well I hear they were yum cause you know I’m on a diet. Brent & Susie Celek, with Jon Dorenbos.

Oh wait we forgot to put the drizzle on. Like these people needed any more sugar added to their doughnuts. The laughter got louder and the energy sparked as the sugar rush continued. My bet is about an hour later they all crashed for afternoon naps. At last count Todd and Brent were tied with about 5 doughnuts down.
Krispy Kreme is offering customers a free Krispy Kreme doughnut June 3 on “National Doughnut Day.” Also if you buy a dozen you will help the Salvation Army, but you need a coupon. Thanks Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, owner Brian Zaslow and PR guy and (not pictured) Braden Young, Sales and Marketing Manger,
Check out Jamie Apody’s story on ABC6 sometime this week, perhaps tonight.
