    New York City’s blood supply is so low that the de Blasio administration is dangling prizes to donors — including a year’s worth of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Hizzoner pitched his answer to the blood health crisis at a press briefing Tuesday — where it was revealed the city only has enough of a supply stocked up for about three days, as opposed to the usual seven days.
  • Authorities use Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to Capture Bear

    Apparently, cops don’t love doughnuts just because they taste good; but also because they make effective tools in protecting the public. For proof of this, look no further than Fort Myers, Florida. That’s where animal control officers saved helpless citizens from a menacing bear with nothing more than a box of Krispy Kremes. After a young 250-pound bear was spotted wandering through the streets of Fort Myers Tuesday morning, officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were called out to tranquilize it, says Officer Adam Brown. However, because tranquilizers usually don’t take effect right away, they felt using...

    Looks like Jayson Gonzalez is getting a sweet deal after all. Krispy Kreme is reportedly giving the Minnesota college student 500 boxes of doughnuts after initially asking the 21-year-old to shut down his business of buying and reselling boxes of doughnuts. [cut] Krispy Kreme did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment, but in a statement to Business Insider, the brand said that once it learned Gonzalez was putting the money he made from the doughnut sales toward his goal of graduating from college debt-free, the company wanted to help. "Our main concern is that the doughnuts Jayson...

    An enterprising Minnesota college student who drove to Iowa every weekend to buy hundreds of Krispy Kreme doughnuts that he then sold to his own customers in the Twin Cities area said he's shutting down his service after getting a warning from the confectionary giant. There have been no Krispy Kreme stores in Minnesota for 11 years. "I have been told I have to shut down operations," Jayson Gonzalez, 21, of Champlin, Minnesota, wrote to his Facebook followers. "I figured it would come eventually, but it arrived early."

    Their billionaire descendants, who control Krispy Kreme, Stumptown and other brands, are grappling with the exposure of an unspeakable secret. 1. Such appalling events Emilie Landecker was 19 when she went to work for Benckiser, a German company that made industrial cleaning products and also took pride in cleansing its staff of non-Aryan elements. It was 1941. Ms. Landecker was half Jewish and terrified of deportation. Her new boss, Albert Reimann Jr., was an early disciple of Adolf Hitler and described himself as an “unconditional follower” of Nazi race theory. Somehow, inexplicably, they fell in love. The story of Ms....

    There is no “glossing over” how the German conglomerate that now owns iconic American glazed Krispy Kreme donuts once made its dough — on the blood and forced labor orchestrated by the Nazi party, it conceded on Monday following a popular German tabloid’s published account. The Bild am Sonntag newspaper report of the Nazi ties to the Reimann family and its JAB Holding Co. was confirmed by spokesman and company executive Peter Harf, and reported in English on the Deutsche Welle media site. Krispy Kreme Donuts Inc. was sold to a unit of JAB Holding for about $1.35 billion in...

    At SXSW, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) once again went on the attack, saying that Ronald Reagan was a racist who pitted white working class Americans against those of similar economic standing in communities of color. Guy gutted that remark in just one tweet. President Reagan won 49/50 states, 60 percent of the popular vote including 46 percent of the lowest income class, and 58 percent of the second lowest. Let her talk about policy, folks. Just let her talk. Ocasio-Cortez also said America was trash. I wish I could say this is just sour grapes over Hillary Clinton losing, but something...

    Barack Obama is here to remind voters: Do nut give up! The former president was greeted with a roaring round of applause at a Wexton field office in Fairfax County, Virginia, on Monday, when he surprised a group of hard-working volunteers and campaign staffers with boxes of Sugar Shack doughnuts. And the sweet treats were “especially approved” by his wife and former first lady Michelle Obama! “She knows all of you have been working so hard,” Obama told the group of 60 people, as seen in video shared by ABC News. The former commander-in-chief was visiting the offices of Senator...

    It looked like closing time at the county fair or the week before Christmas at the mall: cars just sitting there, bumper to bumper, waiting their turn to inch along. Dozens of vehicles lined up and down the aisles of the parking lot, honking as if every single driver in front of them was staring at their cellphone while stopped at a green light. It sounded like the traffic jam of the century. But, in fact, it was the Krispy Kreme drive-through at 1:30 a.m. in Dublin — the first to open in the country. The Dublin location opened Sept....

    ‘…During the lecture, titled "Coconut Oil and other Nutritional Errors," Karin Michels has made herself very clear with regard to dietary recommendations, and underlined that coconut oil is not healthy. Its superfood status had already come under scrutiny last year after the American Heart Association (AHA) updated its guidelines, which recommended that people avoid the saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. Michels went a step further than to recommend avoiding the foodstuff, saying "coconut oil is pure poison" and "is one of the worst foods you can eat." There's no study showing significant health benefits to coconut-oil consumption. And,...

    The NYPD is being dragged down by overweight cops — and the brass isn’t doing anything about the ballooning problem, police sources told The Post. “We really are the world’s largest police department,” said one veteran cop who’s worked in Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx. “We’re the fattest police department in the country … because we have no requirement to stay in shape.”

    A growing scandal associated with a former Chicago police tactical team accused of shaking down drug dealers and framing south side residents now includes scrutiny of at least 15 active Chicago police officers. NBC 5 Investigates has learned the 15 officers are now assigned to desk duty, in a case which has already seen the convictions of 20 individuals overturned. Last November, on a single day, Cook County prosecutors threw out the convictions of over a dozen men who had been arrested by Sgt. Ronald Watts and his team at the former Ida B. Wells housing project. All contended they...

    Well, that's Strange... Here’s what we know. In the photo below, Chuck Schumer appears with an unidentified foreign personage of some sort. They’re eating donuts at a Kirspy Kreme. We assume everything is on the up and up, because Schumer is obviously a person of the highest moral character, but we’d still like to know who his companion is. He looks kind of familiar, but we just can’t seem to place the face.

    The Police Department in Tulsa, Okla., released video on Monday of an encounter during which, the authorities said, a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black man who could be seen raising his hands above his head. The department opened a criminal investigation into the shooting and said the Tulsa County district attorney, Steve Kunzweiler, would review its findings. The federal Justice Department opened a separate civil rights investigation. During the encounter, which took place around 7:40 p.m. Friday, Terence Crutcher, 40, was shot once and killed by Betty Shelby, a Tulsa police officer since 2011, after the police...
