How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

We had a discussion recently that was brought on by the Krispy Kreme Challenge: http://www.krispykremechallenge.com/

We had a simpler proposal: How fast could you eat a dozen KK glazed donuts? Almost everyone says under 10 minutes except one friend who insists it'd take longer. He challenged a coworker who couldn't put down a dozen in an hour. I don't know what was wrong with that guy, but that seems like a joke. Anyway, the plans are underway to put on a contest in the coming weeks to see who can put down a dozen the fastest.

Has anyone done this? How long does it take?

Secondary contest: how long before you have to run to the bathroom afterward?

I don't think it's very hard to do. I could do it in under 10 minutes... probably closer to 5 minutes. I would just need some water to wash away the sweetness. There's not much to a KK glazed donut.

I don't think my stomach could handle that in a day let alone an hour!

Yeah I could do it fairly quickly... It wouldnt be fun afterwards, but I dont think it would be that hard actually.

I think you would have to do it fast before the donuts expand in your stomach.. I imagine it might be easier to eat 12 donuts in 12 minutes than 1 donut every 5 minutes for an hour.

I'm going to have to pass on this. Tell me how it turns out.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

haha, that looks pretty fun and like something me and my friends would have done in college. Apparently there's a method to it and you can compress 4 donuts into essentially 1 by stacking them and compressing.

It wouldn't be hard to do but I wouldn't feel good for the rest of the day.

Thats what I think to.

For me, considering that I have had maybe 1 Krispy Kreme donut a year, it would take me about 12 years to do it... and I'd still feel sick afterwards.

I think if they were still warm they would go down faster. They already are kind of melting when they're warm.
Krispy Kreme left our area, so it's been awhile since I've had a hot one.

Agreed.

For me it would be a really long time since I do not like them at all.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

At 210 calories per doughnut, I'd have to pass on a 2,500 calorie stunt. I do love some KK doughnuts though.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

Although I love the taste of a Krispy Kreme donut, I avoid them because of how unhealthy they are.

This idea makes me want to puke.

I could do it in 15 minutes, if not less.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

just the thought of eating one, makes me gag - I don't care for Krispy Kreme donuts.

now Entenmann's chocolate donuts are a different story.

Actually, I love Krispy Kreme donuts. But the fact that there aren't any KK's in my area anymore and the fact that I like Dunkin Donuts better makes KK a rare occasion for me.

I agree, and thats exactly how I would do it...

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

I love KK! If they're hot out the oven I don't think it would take long to down 12. Like someone else mentioned, they practically melt in your mouth. Now if it was cake based like Dunkin Donuts, it would take longer.

Granted I would never do this. I haven't eaten a donut in about 3 years. Soooooo bad for you. Stop making me crave donuts!

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

As has been mentioned, there's not much to a KK glazed. They're highly compressible and melt in the mouth. I'd be able to down a dozen in less than 5 minutes easily, though they are not my favorite doughnut.

I prefer the French cruller or even an original cake Dunkin' Donut with the little handle on the side.



Just because.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

I just saw this video last week of Greg Garber doing the Krispy Kreme Challenge.

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4000801

Running 2 miles...eating 12 donuts and running 2 more miles in under an hour doesn't seem very hard. If he could almost do it in a suit and doing interviews....I think I would be able to do it too.

Re: How fast could you eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?

Back in my college days, I know I pounded at least 6 KK donuts in under a minute without being fazed. So, (If I didn't value my health these days) I think I'd be able to do a dozed in around 2 minutes - regular donuts from other places would take much longer.
