BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Talk about a donut run, one Boston man is so determined to get his fix of Krispy Kreme pastries that he's willing to take to the skies in an airplane. After the last Krispy Kreme in the Commonwealth closed, Chase has been lifting off the tarmac to reach the closest location to Boston: the Mohegan Sun in Montville, Connecticut. He grew up in the south before he moved to the Bay State; the pilot says he misses having franchise locations around.
"They had it for a short time when I first moved here and then they all started to close down— it was heartbreaking," Chase said.
WBZ's Matt Shearer tagged along for one of Chase's gravity-defying donut voyages.
"Dunkin Donuts is great, but Krispy Kreme is so different— the cream, the glaze, you can't beat it." Chase said.
It's not a cheap venture either, Chase says that flying to snag a few dozen Krispy Kreme sweets in September set him back about $500. It was because of those steep costs and intense winds that Matt and Chase didn't reach Mohegan Sun. Even if operation "Matt & Chase Go To Krispy Kreme" didn't work out, there was nothing stopping them from enjoying the sky view of Boston.
Chase says the expenses are worth it too, declaring he'd do it again if the trip ends with a haul of Krispy Kreme donuts in tow.
