Not kosher for your waistline but good enough for your rabbi, a kosher Krispy Kreme Donuts opened Aug. 6 on Route 22 in Springfield.
All the hole-y treats — the ones dusted with powdered sugar or cinnamon, filled with raspberry jam or lemon curd or Oreo cookie cream, and glazed in chocolate or covered in sprinkles — are under K.O.A. kosher certification and supervised by Rabbi Chaim Marcus of the Orthodox Congregation Israel in Springfield.
There’s also an in-house factory onsite, just beyond the cases holding the day’s fresh treats, where patrons can watch the doughnuts being made. It’s the third Krispy Kreme franchise in New Jersey, joining the location in Jersey City, which opened in 2017 and also has its own factory under K.O.A. supervision, and the other in Collingswood in Camden County, which opened in 2011.
The new Krispy Kreme, located at 25 U.S. 22 East, is open Monday through Friday, 5 a.m.-10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.
