Krispy Kreme's New Caramel Donuts Have Everyone Talking

Renowned donut maker Krispy Kreme has been ruling the donut business since its beginning in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in 1937. According to Krispy Kreme's official website, the brand was founded by entrepreneur Vernon Rudolph, who got his hands on a secret donut recipe and started selling Krispy Kreme donuts to grocery stores around him. His offerings became incredibly popular over the years and earned a loyal fan following.

The brand has since expanded and now has more than 1,000 outlets across the globe in countries such as Bahrain, Canada, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK, and the United Arab Emirates (via Mental Floss).
