Krispy Kreme Doughnuts only recently came to South Africa. I once had a striped glaze Krispy Kreme at Hong Kong airport, 10 years ago. I’ve been looking forward to finding them here in SA. Today I saw a Krispy Kreme store at the mall, so I decided to take some donuts home.
I got 3 original glazed donuts 3 assorted frosting/ fillings to share. (So I had one original and a third of each of the others. )
Cookies N Kreme:
I love cookies & cream ice-cream. As a donuts topping, not so much. It was okay
Caramel Kreme Crunch:
Delicious. Though extremely sweet. Too much filling for my taste. Most of the filling fell out when I shared the donut. I didn’t eat the spilled filling. Though overall, a very tasty piece of baked good(s).
New York Cheese Cake:
I loved the filling. I’d eat it on it’s own. It overpowered the donut tough.
My favourite. Absolutely the best donut.
It was lots of fun to try the different flavours and I might try some more in future, but I think the original is still the best. If you just get one donut, go for that one.
They weren’t terribly expensive considering it’s a foreign franchise, though they’re not prices like super market donuts either. For a special treat, they are reasonably priced. The order cost R71.40 (± $5.45).
