Imagine if there was a 24-hour drive-thru for your favourite food that wasn't McDonald's or KFC?

That's exactly what the lucky people of Dublin, Ireland got when Krispy Kreme doughnuts opened up a 24-hour service selling their delicious pastries.

Except they clearly didn't calculate how much Dubliners liked Krispy Kreme's and how much they would use their 24-hour service.

A quite frankly amazing video from The Irish Post on Facebook shows a huge queue of cars, all with their horns blaring in an attempt to get a doughnut at 11:15 at night.

The drive-through had only been open for one week and because of the high demand a decision has already been made to have it close at 11:30 pm every evening following complaints by neighbours.

In a statement, Krispy Kreme CEO Richard Cheshire said:

We’ve listened to our neighbours and we’re making changes

We anticipated a warm welcome for Krispy Kreme in Ireland and have long wanted to open a store here, but the response has been way ahead of our most optimistic expectations.

For the customers coming into our store in Blanchardstown, the smiles and joy have been great to see.

For the most part too, our drive-thru has been a success.

But we know that the late-night noise has been an upset for our neighbours.

Some customers have been beeping their horns and disturbing families in nearby apartment complexes.

Most importantly, we are saying to our neighbours, we’ve listened and we’re making changes immediately.

Once news of the Krispy Kreme story reached Twitter, folks found it to be very amusing.
