Krispy Kreme responds to Twitter hoax about Krispy Kreme coming to Auburn by sending donut bus to AU campus

God bless you, Krispy Kreme.

The moral of this story: we need more fake social media accounts announcing donut companies are setting up shop in Auburn. Because so sorry did Krispy Kreme feel about the prank pulled on the Auburn Twittersphere earlier this week—last year it was Whataburger—it dispatched a bus carrying 1,200 donuts to the Plains.

The Krispy Kreme Cruiser pulled up outside the Auburn Student Center around 4 p.m. Friday and quickly began unloading it’s cargo… for free. It was wonderful.

So could the false rumor turn into a tasty truth? (You know, like it was 1982…)

“I think we definitely should look at it,” Krispy Kreme marketing coordinator Kara Palm told us before the bus left for Birmingham. “Hopefully we can get something happening.”
