I have trouble opening a packet of jaffa cakes and not devouring the lot in minutes, I don't think I should try that with one that size!

Given that one of the people I work with has eaten a dozen krispy kremes in an evening (and yet you wouldn't think it) I'm confident I know people that can easily knock back sixty jaffa cakes. Hmm, maybe there's a time-challenge to be had?

Krispy Kremes have yet (to the best of my knowledge) to make it this far north, which is probably a good thing.

I reckon I could easily put that yard of jaffa cakes away in a single evening though.

Gaz, next sprout do where there's a conveniently located Kripsy Kreme spot along the way we're both at, I'll bring some so you can try them.

You are a gentleman and a scholar sir.

I've passed a Krispy Kreme stand, I think it was in Waterloo station, certainly one of the London stations last year sometime, but I didn't partake.

I could probably eat that many over an evening, although probably not as continuously as I can do with a single packet. 60 is the same as 5 normal packets or 4 tubes, I could work my way up.

As someone who has had these at least twice in the past, I'm telling you it's doable. Completely awesome.

Does give you that kind of sick post-halloween feeling though, but totally worth it.
