Krispy Kreme Doughnuts | Kahului, Maui, HI

My wife and I made our goal to try every Krispy Kreme we come across. From Las Vegas to Orlando to Hawaii… #cantstopwontstop and Maui was definitely no exception!

We were pretty upset because we waited about an hour (yes, an hour and we’re not embarrassed to admit it) for the hot light hour at this shop… because they had the conveyor belt and everything!!! We were disappointed because well, things were delayed… and we didn’t catch it.

By the way, there’s an app to determine if the hot light is on at a specific krispy kreme location.

In case you’re wondering, the Hot Light basically states that the donuts being served are fresh off the line, literally just fried and freshly iced.

Here’s the app:

While we were waiting, we had a couple of things:

Glazed Donut

The only kind of Krispy Kreme donut that isn’t delicious is one that is stale. This donut most certainly was fresh and made that day. The moisture was locked in, the icing was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and honestly, the donuts were so light, give me a gallon of milk and two dozen of these, WARM, and I would have been satisfied for the whole year. Yep, if you’ve had a Krispy Kreme donut, and it was glorious, that’s exactly what we experienced.


This eclair was SO disappointing. Seriously, it was so stale and just not good. Of course, are you surprised? Not many people go to Krispy Kreme for a damn eclair and I was the fool to make that mistake. I mean… imagine it being exactly like the donut, with filling, and a chocolate frosting. I mean… that’s perfect! Not this time.

Definitely visit this spot. Make sure you visit when the hot light is on. Make sure you check the app. The service is perfect at this spot, by the way. Everyone is nice, greets you with a smile, and well… they also dont mind that you’ll sit around the store for an hour or two waiting for a hot light that will never turn on. lol!
