Once you take your first bite of a Krispy Kreme, you will most probably become addicted. They are so mourish and delicious, you just can't stop eating them. I can safely say that this applies to me!
I first came across Krispy Kreme doughnuts about 2 years ago while shopping with friends. We had seen and heard of these beauties but never tried them. We managed to find the Krispy Kreme shop in our local shopping mall and brought 2 each. I had an original glaze doughnut and a Rudolf the red nose reindeer one (it was Christmas time). I have been completely hooked ever since.
I have to admit, the range of doughnuts is huge. You can get anything from the traditional glaze doughnut (a bit like a yumyum if you've ever had one), to a completely over the top chocolate sprinkle doughnut. All of which are delicious.
A few of my favourites are the original glaze which is a plain ring doughnut with sugary icing all over. Next would have to be the chocolate dream cake - by far the most over the top doughnut I have ever come across. It is a plain doughnut with chocolate filling, caked in chocolate flavoured icing with chocolate flakes on top. The last in my short list (before I run to the shop to buy some) is a jam filled doughnut covered in strawberry icing and sprinkles. I am unsure of the name but it looks as good as it tastes.
I might of only mentioned a few, but you can choose from over 20 different types. All toppings and fillings that you could imagine. Depending on the season you can also buy special ones.. for example there is a heart shaped doughnut that is very pink and sprinkly at Valentines day and a Rudolf one at Christmas which has a red nose and caramel icing.
The prices of the doughnuts vary depending on which you buy. The original glaze doughnut is £1, whereas the more elaborate designed ones are £1.40 (special seasonal ones are sometimes a little more). What I love about Krispy Kreme is that you can buy a box which costs a set price and you fill it with whichever doughnuts take your fancy. You can choose between different box sizes depending how many you would like.
Obviously ingredients and nutritional values change dependant on the doughnut you choose so if you visit the website below you will find all information about your chosen delight. I have to admit they are very sugary and probably full of calories though!
I personally cannot get enough of these and would love to be able to eat them all the time without putting on weight, but unfortunately this is impossible so they make for a tasty treat. I really enjoy trying all of the different and sometimes new flavours and they are really good for replacing popcorn on movie nights with friends.
Summary: short but sweet & to the point
