Cheerwine-Filled Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Two beloved North Carolina companies have conspired to raise the state’s per capita diabetes ranking.

Cheerwine, based in Salisbury, N.C., since 1917, makes Cherry Coke seem like a botched knock-off of its signature soda. Krispy Kreme, whose hot doughnuts I’ve introduced to scores of visiting Yankees, are face-meltingly delicious.
