Krispy Kreme UK recently unveiled a donut lover’s wet dream in the form of the Double Hundred Dozen, a 2,400 pack of original glazed glory that will be part of the company’s new “Occasions” offerings for large events. As expected from the photo above and after the jump, packing and delivering the Double Hundred Dozen is an ordeal requiring eight Krispy Kreme staff members and a box measuring over 3.5 meters long and just under a meter tall (that’s roughly 11.5 x 3ft for the metric impaired).
The company is currently holding a contest that will award one lucky business with a Double Hundred Dozen for an upcoming event (enter by tweeting @krispykremeUK about an upcoming #BigOccasion with an #officename). For the rest of England, there doesn’t seem to be any indication of how many pounds this thing will cost – either in currency or on the scale.
Olive Garden’s downward spiral continued on Monday when the chain introduced a horrible new logo that is about 40 years out of date. The retaliation against this baffling choice was swift and brutal, especially on social media, where it was referred to as “garbage”, “a hot load of crap”, and my personal favorite, “something off a crockpot from the 1970s”.
Strangely enough, Olive Garden’s parent company, Darden Restaurants, is standing by this monstrosity, believing it will bring about a “brand renaissance” along with other changes such as lower prices, smaller plates and remodeled restaurants. According to the PR people, the move will result in “a complete dining experience that is casual, yet stylish, creating an atmosphere that promotes togetherness, nurtures relationships and welcomes sharing.”
Whatever… methinks people will ultimately prefer the more expensive, Dean Martin-soaked Olive Gardens of yesteryear.

As you may remember, Taco Bell was testing a Breakfast Waffle Taco in California which consists of a folded waffle stuffed with sausage and scrambled eggs served with a side of syrup. It is now being reported that the creation will be available at an additional 100 locations in Fresno, Calif., Omaha, Neb., and Chattanooga, Tenn starting today, so you may want to clear your schedule and put on your overeating pants.
Waynesboro, Georgia is heading for a whole new identity thanks to a 7 foot tall KFC bucket that mysteriously showed up in a woman’s front yard last Thursday. The phantom bucket subsequently appeared on Facebook and the local news, turning it into a popular landmark – the woman’s landlord even claims that he will have it mounted on a pole for the world to see. Needless to say, the misleading ad will likely result in a lot of pissed off, chicken-starved passers by who will have to trek more than five additional miles to get the Colonel’s nearest location.
