Why Isn't Krispy Kreme Popcorn Available in the US?

Americans love kettle corn. They also love donuts, especially Krispy Kreme donuts. It just doesn't make any sense.

Americans love kettle corn. They also love donuts, especially Krispy Kreme donuts. 

So when I saw that Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Popcorn was a creation that actually existed, my mouth began to water. 

And imagine my disappointment when I realized, like most delicious things, it was only available ACROSS THE POND. 

Why? Companies defend their decision to sell certain products specifically outside of the US because the demand is higher. 

I'd argue that a demand for Glazed Donut flavored popcorn is preeeeetttty high in the US.

According to Statista, 67.58 million Americans consumed Orville Redenbacher in 2017. And that number only encompasses one popcorn brand.

Did I mention the OG glazed popcorn tastes JUST like the donut and is gluten-free? Americans love gluten free. 

All signs point to this being a hot commodity amongst us donut-loving-popcorn-popping-gluten-avoiding people. 

So Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, take our plea into consideration — bring this delicious treat to the US masses.

And if anyone is in the UK right now and spots this decadent treat, send it my way!
