Aaah, so it's Sunday which means it's time for a delicious post. The other day I was sent some delicious doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (lucky me). If you know me, you'll know that I am a Krispy Kreme obsessssssor... I'm absolutely addicted, I love krispy kreme like a fat kid loves cake (ironic as if I keep eating them I will soon be that person ahah, worth it though). It was a great day for me when I went into my local Tesco and found out that they stock Krispy Kremes, I think I nearly fainted, at the counter. My Mum even bought me a Krispy Kreme mug as a welcome present when I moved into my Uni flat. Every time I go through the Krispy Kreme drive through near my house I ask for a hat and a balloon... yep I really am that obsessed, i'd like a job there actually. See a cringe worthy example below. Yes. I love Krispy Kreme, as you can see. I wish I had my own drive through in my garden.
So, when this beautiful delivery landed at my door the other day, I was pretty happy. In fact, ridiculously happy. So were my flat mates, but I didn't really want to share. Krispy Kremes are for sharing, but it's difficult to share when they're so delicious. As much as I wanted to eat them all, I had my body weight in them and decided to spare my body of the calories and did share them (with great difficulty, hands of my Krispy Kremes!) Safe to say I was popular that night in my flat though.
I was even excited by the bag that they came in. How adorable. Possibly the best thing I have ever received in the post. As you can see on the beautiful photos above, I was loving my life when munching through the new flavours. You've got to be mad if you don't like Krispy Kreme... I wonder what my life was like back in the days before Krispy Kreme. I was probably lighter but so less satisfied. I'd rather eat lots of Krispy Kremes and just got to the gym a few more times a week.
Okay, so I should probably talk to you about the different variations. I posted a photo on Twitter and my friend straight away said 'OMG ARE THEY NEW FLAVOURS!' Indeed they are....
I am pleased to introduce you to;
#1 - Chocolate Praline Fudge Cake (my personal fave)
I love this one because it's similar to my fave; cookies and creme. If you are a chocoholic (like moi), I warn you now, you will become addicted to this doughnutty take on a chocolate fudge cake. The doughnut is hand dipped in milk chocolate hazelnut sauce, the layer of hazlenut sauce is perfectly thick. As you can see on the photo, it's perfectly crumbly and deliciously chocolatey but the blend of the caramelised hazelnuts on the side of the doughnut with the chocolate sauce work together to create a perfectly crunchy texture. This is the new chocolate fudge cake. Try dipping this in Nutella. You will be in heaven. Death by chocolate anyone?
#2 - Salted Caramel
This beautiful new doughnut is drizzled with white caramel, usually I find caramel too sickly but at the K.K factory they clearly know how much to put on to tantalise the taste buds but not make you feel sick. Not to mention the caramel inside, oh did I mention it's salted caramel- it just gives it that perfect finish. The doughnut itself is dipped in Belgian dark chocolate icing and once again, the perfect amount. It almost tastes like a large jaffa cake, but with caramel inside. I can't describe how good the sauce tastes. Of course, like all K.K doughnuts the dough is perfect, the thick chocolate on the top works perfectly with the salted caramel to create a tantalizing treat, I could eat this all day long.
#3 - Pistachio & White Chocolate Nougat.
This is probably the poshest doughnut that I have ever come across. If these doughnuts were spice girls this would be posh spice. The middle literally tastes like the nicest custard/butter icing that I have ever tasted. Me and my flat mates actually spooned it out when doing a taste test on it because we wanted to figure out what it was, it's like a mystery. We've come to the conclusion that it's the perfect gloop inside a doughnut, but it's actually pistachio praline Kreme. I love praline and have never seen it in a pistachio form, so this is seriously a treat for any taste buds. The toppings actually make this doughnut feel quite healthy, sprinkled with chopped pistachio, honey and raspberry flakes. Raspberry being my fave, together though this is the perfect threesome of flakes. Posh spice wouldn't be out of place in a window display at Betty's tea shop.
Lets just say, the doughnuts above didn't last long. Krispy Kreme clearly just have the talents to make any ingredients go together. I can't wait to see if the bring some special ones out for Christmas. I know what's gonna be on my Christmas list. Oh, and a treadmill please Santa.
A few of the guys came over from across the road to help me and my flat mates demolish these beautys. To conclude, yes; Krispy Kreme do it again. Taking the world by storm Doughnut after doughnut Another one please...
Do you like Krispy Kremes? What's your fave?
