Krispy Kreme 7-Eleven Price Increase

By alljacq - 2 July 2012 28

My wife loves Krispy Kreme and with 7-Eleven now stocking them I have brought some over the last month at $8.95 for a 4 pack.

Howver, when I went in today that have risen to $11. How curious with the new tax year an increase in prices.

Anyone know why the increase or should I refer them to the ACCC?

What’s Your opinion?

I have eaten Krispy Kreme once in my entire life – and even then it was only half a donut. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Absolutely disgusting – and I can’t believe they are allowed to be freely sold without health warnings.

I’ve tried them a couple of times. They’re just ordinary doughnuts – nothing particularly good or bad about them. You can generaly get better at your local bakery. Like most American chains, the effort goes into the advertising, not into the product.

It’s a fat tax.

It should be. Considering one KK doughnut is equivalent to eating 6 lamb chops.

I wouldn’t approach the ACCC for a critical issue like this, ACA or TT will carry out a far more thorough investigation.

I wish you would capatalise your outrage. How are you going to get a Flame of the Month without it?
Yep, doughnuts are right up there with cigarettes.

Well, there is a lot of Carbon in sugar.

Glucose = C6H12O6 ((2R,3S,4R,5R)-2,3,4,5,6-Pentahydroxyhexanal)

…and there is a great big new shiny tax™ on that now.

I wouldn’t know about Krispy Kreme. The thing that’s annoying me is bones at Woolworths. I buy the soup bones for the dogs and they’ve gone from $3.99k to $5.99 a kilo in one move. Is it because people make more soup in winter? It’s a 50% increase, Mr/s Woolworths. I can’t see any way you could have an increase in costs that could justify it, and I’m not buying it. Or the bones.

Try Coles – better variety and cheaper prices.

Or think outside the duopoly and check out your local butcher or Jordo’s Chop Shop online.

On topic. $11 sounds pretty pricey for a 4 pack of doughnuts.
Unless KK/711 is claiming the price increase is due to the carbon tax, I doubt the ACCC will have anything to say about it.

Get down there around 7am and wait for the guys throwing yesterdays stock out. I’ve seen it several times at my local. Heck, if folks are willing to pay $11 for four crappy doughnuts then surely they are not above a bit of dumpster-diving?! 😉

Take this opportunity to inform your wife the fat content of a KK doughnut has risen from 55 cents to 68 cents and for the sake of your budget she needs to cut back.

Consider it an opportunity to become a swapper.

P.S. where did you bring them to?

I recon its also the cost of living on top of the Carbon tax. Every thing tends to go up in cost after July 1 every year.
