North Carolinians love Krispy Kreme

North Carolinians pay homage to the Krispy Kreme doughnut in a variety of ways.

The winner of the N.C. Egg Art contest is a Krispy Kreme burger with all the fixings. North Carolina’s Egg Farmers sponsor the N.C. Egg Art contest, which has to have a State Fair theme. The winning artist is Jacqueline Breckling from Cary. You can find the egg art in the Hobbies and Handicraft Building.


This Lego Krispy Kreme store depiction earned a second-place ribbon for Howard Maye of Raleigh in the North Carolina travel theme category. It can be found in the Hobbies and Handicrafts Building.

Miss Debbie’s Specialty Apples created the Krispy Kreme Collection for this year’s State Fair using a variety of Krispy Kreme flavors. Miss Debbie’s is found in the Commercial Building.

And of course, you can’t forget about the Krispy Kreme burger or the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe.  Another new item this year is Krispy Kreme flavored ice cream by County Folks, which is near Kiddieland.

And apparently our love of donuts runs deeper than just food. These beauties were found on the midway.
