Time Out says

Sure, there are other flavors you could choose from—chocolate, powdered jelly, frosted—but fans of this multinational corporate behemoth know that the melt-in-your-mouth glazed variety is what keep Krispy Kreme top of mind among sugar-starved Angelenos, even in a doughnut-rich city like L.A. Simple, sweet and to the point, they’re the perfect antidote to all of the city’s fancy-schmancy doughnuts—and better yet, students can get up to six free for every A on their latest report card. You might be able to track these babies down at your nearest 7-Eleven, but for the freshest doughnuts you’ll need to head to South Pasadena, Gardena, Burbank, Long Beach or the L.A. outpost on Crenshaw Boulevard, where you can gape through the glass at the enormous conveyor belt of glistening, freshly glazed doughnuts (and, when the "HOT" sign is on, maybe even snag a freebie).
