Big Island Donut Exodus

There is no Krispy Kreme donut shop on the Big Island. So how do we go about eating these delightful treats? Big Island residents fly over to Maui (using cheap inter-island flights or frequent flyer miles: When airlines compete, YOU save!), take a taxi the short distance from the Kahalui Airport to the Krispy Kreme, load up their luggage with donuts, and then return to the Big Island to sell them at the side of the road, out of their parked trucks, or at their local shops.
I am not amazed at all about this.
But then...I used to drive from Northern California to Las Vegas Nevada and load up on Boston Creme Donuts from Dunkin'Donuts, so maybe I am not the best judge of odd donut-seeking behavior.
