Krispy Kreme Introduces Charity Doughnut Vending Machine in London

Doughnut giants Krispy Kreme recently added a delicious new variety to their line. Nutella doughnuts! Chocolate and hazelnut, together at last, in delicious doughnuts!

It’s not every day that this sort of thing happens. Krispy Kreme knew that they had to do something pretty spectacular when launching their new doughnut. And they delivered.

How? With a vending machine!

Well. It’s described as a “Hole in the Wall”, so perhaps it’s more accurate to refer to it as a cash point. A doughnut ATM.

The machine appeared on Monday May 9 at the Holborn Station branch of Krispy Kreme, and it remained open until Saturday May 21.

The Hole in the Wall only accepted contactless card payments. But in exchange for just £2, customers were presented with a fresh, delicious, Nutella-filled doughnut, with all proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Magical Secrets

A statement from Krispy Kreme read: “Hole in the Wall will give the public the chance to unlock a non-descript doughnut shaped hatch as they discover the magical secrets behind Krispy Kreme’s Nutty Chocolatta creation.

“Once the hatch opens they will be presented with a taste of indulgence in the form of a much coveted treat!”

Only in Plymouth

Though strictly limited edition, and though strictly limited to the Holborn area of London, some seem to believe that this isn’t the last we’ll see of Krispy Kreme’s vending machine experiments.

The Plymouth Herald, for example, believe that this is a clear sign of things to come.

“Krispy Kreme doughnut vending machines could start popping up all over Plymouth,” read the headline of an article that went on to describe the machine as “Something Homer Simpson could only dream of.”

“Plymouth might not have a doughnut vending machine just yet,” they said, “but there is still a chance.”

Don’t stop believin’, Plymouth.
