Dine 909: Craving Krispy Kreme doughnuts? Head to Stater Bros. – Press-Enterprise

The “hot light” is on at Krispy Kreme kiosks that have been popping up in Stater Bros. markets throughout the Inland Empire.

The kiosks are pretty much miniature versions of Krispy Kreme shops, well, minus the giant conveyor belt fryer.

They’re stocked with several varieties of doughnuts — there’s room for 10 styles — including original and other glazed varieties, cake doughnuts and filled doughnuts.

Customers can purchase single doughnuts, three-packs, or mix and match a dozen. There are also pre-boxed dozens of original glazed and assorted doughnuts to grab and go.

Prices run around $1.60 for a single original glazed and $1.70 for other varieties. A dozen doughnuts will set you back about $12 for original glazed and $13 for an assortment.

Thanks to reader — and former co-worker — Mike for letting us know after spotting the kiosk at the Greenspot Road store in Highland.

Barrel-aged beauties

Fans of barrel-aged beers will want to head to Temecula on Saturday, Feb. 1.

Ironfire Brewing Company is hosting its sixth annual Wetwood Saturday from noon-6 p.m. at its brewery, 42095 Zevo Drive, Suite 1.

The brewery will have 10 new barrel-aged brews for sale. However, only 25 bottles from each barrel will be available for purchase, so show up early if you don’t want to miss out.

The brewery will also have a small selection of bottles of barrel-aged beers from previous years available for sale.

In addition, taster- and tulip-sized pours will be available for imbibing.

For more information, including a full list of beers, visit the brewery’s Facebook page at facebook.com/Ironfirebrewing.

Froyo day

International Frozen Yogurt Day is Thursday, Feb. 6, and two frozen yogurt chains have deals lined up.

At Yogurtland, guests can receive a free 5-ounce cup of froyo — or ice cream — from 4-7 p.m.

The deal is good at participating stores, while supplies last.

Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal from 3-7 p.m.

In addition, one guest will receive free frozen yogurt for a year. To enter, simply use the Menchie’s app when visiting between noon and 7 p.m. that day.

Pepito’s reborn

Longtime — since 1963 — Highland restaurant Pepito’s Drive-In has opened its new location.

The new restaurant was built right next door to its old location.

The new location gains a drive-thru, but as of this writing, it has yet to open.

The new location is at 26543 Base Line.

Beer preview

Three Marm Brewing Co. in Crestline is having a sales event on Sunday, Feb. 2.

From noon-2 p.m., guests will be able to purchase bottles of its latest beer, the rum barrel-aged Mystic Mast Stout.

Cost is $19.99 (plus tax) for a 22-ounce bottle.

The sale will take place at the future brewery, 23555 Knapps Cutoff.

Farmer Boys gives back

Farmer Boys and its customers can pat themselves on the back.

The chain has announced the results of its recent fundraiser for Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. More than $150,000 was raised.

Since beginning its fundraising for LLUCH in 2000, Farmer Boys has raised more than $1 million for the hospital.

In addition to helping provide care and outreach programs to children throughout Southern California, the donations also fund research in childhood health and wellness.

SoBol is coming

SoBol, an eatery which specializes in smoothies and healthy bowls, is coming to the Inland Empire.

The new location at 3090 Chino Ave., Suite B, Chino Hills, in the Crossroads Entertainment Center, is set to open Wednesday, Feb. 5.

It’s the first California location for the chain, which has 40 locations on the East Coast.

So long, Subway

Some Highland residents will have to find another place to grab a sandwich.

The Subway at 28936 Greenspot Road has closed, according to another email from reader Mike.

The location had been in that shopping center since it opened in 2006, he writes.

Mike also noted that the nearest Subway locations are the ones by the Lowe’s (27923 Greenspot Road, Suite B) and by Albertsons (7275 Boulder Ave., Suite 3A).

Thanks, Mike!
