Doughnut Reviews

July 14, 2019

 

Krispy Kreme

 

We tried out the ‘choc ice’ and ‘glazed’ doughnuts from American doughnut giant Krispy Kreme. Looked great and tasted really great. Light and fluffy texture. Chocolate icing a little hard and fell off during eating.

 

Price: $6.60

Design: 16/20

Texture: 16/20

Taste: 16/20

Overall Score: 48/60

 

Dunkin' Donuts

 

We tried a choc iced and a glazed doughnut from another American giant Dunkin’ Donuts. These doughnuts didn’t look so pretty and the glaze fell off easily. Quite dense and heavy. The chocolate icing was a little soft, so it actually stayed on during each bite, which was nice. 

 

Price: $6.00

Design: 7/20

Texture: 10/20

Taste: 10/20

Overall Score: 27/60

 

Southern Maid

 

Once again, we tried the choc iced and the glazed. These doughnuts had an okay taste and an okay design. The texture was good. Overall, not memorable for any good or bad reasons which is why they landed in the ‘average’ range.

 

Price: $4.70

Design: 9/20

Texture: 12/20

Taste: 10/20

Overall Score: 31/60

 

The Pie Piper: Doornuts

 

Doornuts is a segment of New Zealand bakery The Pie Piper. I ordered these off Uber Eats and got the Mystery Four Pack for $18. These doughnuts had a particularly dense and thick texture and the icing was very sweet. Tasted great and bigger than some of the others.

Price: $9.00

Design: 10/20

Texture: 14/20

Taste: 16/20

Overall Score: 40/60

Al's Doughnuts

 

These were fancier than some of the others we tried. Unfortunately, they looked better than they tasted. When eaten, the filling in the doughnut oozed out, which made the whole experience very messy. Filling lacked flavour a bit. 

 

Price: $12.00

Design: 16/20

Texture: 14/20

Taste: 12/20

Overall Score: 42/60
