Hole lotta love for Krispy Kreme 

If you see "Hot doughnuts now" in red neon at the new Krispy Kreme, in Winter Park, there's only one thing to do: Get out of traffic and into the drive-through lane as soon as possible, because a fresh batch of doughnuts is rolling off the assembly line.

It would be hard to estimate how many customers have pulled illegal U-turns and other funky driving maneuvers to get to the shop, which opened April 20. But a manager did say that they've had no problems with surplus inventory, even when production is cranked up full blast to 270 dozen doughnuts per hour. Choose from about 17 different kinds -- powdered blueberry, chocolate cream, glazed devil food, sour-cream cake -- but the original glazed remains by far the most popular, at 59 cents a pop. Adding to temptation, the drive-through is open 24/7.
