I'm sure you've already seen the donut on the photo many times. It's from Krispy Kreme! I've always wanted to try the ''real, american donuts'', the ones that policemen buy every day and bring to work in TV shows (do they do that for real?). It was very convenient to find out, that I don't have to spend 500€ for a plane ticket to the US, since they have Krispy Kreme donuts in the UK too.
If I'm honest, I didn't really know what to expect because I eat a lot of donuts at home and I love them. I thought I would like these more! But I was wrong. (Again...). We ordered the Chocolate iced with sprinkles donut and the chocolate-filled-with-chocolate donut. I tried the sprinkled one first and wow, I could almost hear my pancreas screaming. I still don't get it; why would anyone glaze the donut with sugar, then cover it with chocolate AND sprinkle really sweet sprinkles over it? And I thought the donuts I eat at home were sweet! One of these contains 293 calories, while the cream-filled donuts contain even more. Unfortunately, I didn't read this information until after I came home. Ha.
Next one on our menu was the chocolate filled donut, or, as they call it, the Chocolate Dreamcake, filled with chocolate fudge filling. I used to like chocolate donuts at home, when they still had chocolate cream inside. Then they started filling them with vanilla cream! Why, oh why, I kept asking myself, but it didn't help. As one would expect, I was disappointed after trying this donut too. Again, it was too sweet. And overpriced too! The donuts with the hole cost well over one pound each, while the regular ones (filled) cost even more! And they're really small. I don't understand why so many people would want to eat them every day. I'm sure I never will again, since the donuts I eat at home are much healthier (as funny as the phrase ''healthy donut'' may sound) and taste a lot better.
Those of you who like donuts can find their shop in the Selfridges Food Hall on Oxford street. They also offer them in many other grocery stores. But really, if you can, have a cupcake instead. Seriously.
