Few People Know That North Carolina Is The Birthplace Of Krispy Kreme, The Best Donuts In America
The best doughnuts in the world, in our humble opinion, of course, were born right here in North Carolina. New residents aside, even some natives of the Tar Heel State don’t realize the history or the humble beginnings of the famous Hot and Now glazed doughnut from the famously popular Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are rooted in what is now Old Salem.

It’s hard to drive by a Krispy Kreme without the urge to pull in for some doughnuts, wouldn’t you agree?
