The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and NAFDAC shut down the Victoria Island branch of Krispy Kreme on Wednesday.

    Ah Ah Ah…I laughed so hard. I was looking at everyone munching on donoughts when u could jejely eat ur puff puff in peace. Beware of western world life style…Even the people there are trying to wean themselves off junk. I wont be surprised if they still open it, of course after bribing NAFDAC. And naija people go continue to chop dey go. #be proud of yours.
    By the way I am still waiting for the day naija small chops will be appreciated in other countries like krispy crème(I am not talking about naija parties alone).

      @jeunkoku, it will never be appreciated in other countries…

      the only people that will appreciate it in other countries are Nigerians living in those countries.

      Its all part of economics that most black people are yet to understand… buy your own to grow your own..

      What has western lifestyle got to do with anything? puff puff and doughnut …are both of them not made with flour? Flour has an expiry date so you can imagine what kind of puff-puff you have been eating. And yes, they would reopen the outlet but only when they finally buy products that are proper and they would be subjected to months and months of inspection and monitoring till they get it right. The purpose of CPC and NAFDAC is not to destroy businesses but to ensure they conform to best practices to ensure consumers’ safety.

    Well done to the CPC and NAFDAC. Regular unannounced inspection of all food outlets should be done to protect Nigerians from consuming dangerous food.
