Krispy Kreme always has a range of limited edition themed doughnuts. In early 2017, it was the movies and this is the Cola Fizz doughnut ‘filled with a zingy cola flavoured filling, hand dipped and lightly drizzled with a Cola flavoured icing’ and topped with a sour cola bottle lolly.
This doughnut has a pleasantly bright and refreshing cola flavoured filling with a refreshing zingy acidity to counter the sweetness cola flavoured icing and the cola stripes. The doughnut itself is pillowy soft and light, while the sour cola bottle leaves you in no doubt that this is a cola doughnut.
After the movies inspired doughnuts, it was a collaboration with Nutella. This is the Filled with Nutella ($3.50), with the ‘soft, fluffy centre […] filled with Nutella’ and finished with ‘a drizzle of Nutella and a light dusting of icing sugar’.
This doughnut had a fluffy dough, but it was a tad dry perhaps because it was no longer fresh as it was from the end of the day (at 5:00 pm). It was a cold day, so the Nutella innards were a bit dense rather than satisfyingly melt-in-your-mouth.
And finally, this is the Dipped in Nutella ($3.50), a classic ring doughnut dipped with Nutella, topped with a smattering of caramelised hazelnuts, and finished with a drizzle of Nutella.
This doughnut was a tad oily with the dipped Nutella portion sticking to the roof of your mouth when eating. The caramelised hazelnuts, though, were redeeming in its crunchy, nutty flavour and in providing a barrier to avoiding direct contact of the dipped Nutella so its chocolate deliciousness could be enjoyed.
While the limited edition doughnuts at Krispy Kreme are interesting, nothing quite beats the basic satisfaction of the Original Glazed.
Krispy Kreme is located at Shop 4, 2 Lee Street Henry Deane Plaza Haymarket, NSW 2000.
