I have never tried one - am I missing out? If so which do you recommend? I like sickly things lol eg on a carrot cake prefer the frosting to the actual cake - would never be interested in just a blueberry muffin for example - too plain for me.
thanks

Used to love them but then I found out they contain trans fats so I stopped buying them.

A big disappointment. No different to Greggs.

In the Bull Ring in Birmingham you can see them being made and when I've had to queue to be served they come out with a hot plain one for every person in the queue.

Delish!

As for favourite? I like the apple ones.

Definitely worth a taste x

Used to love them until I looked at the massive list of ingredients - no wonder they taste synthetic, they don't contain any real ingredients. Wouldn't touch them now, not even tempted.

Not a big donut fan here based on the supermarket ones but I have to say Krispy Kreme ones are great.

Did you know you can freeze them too? I go to France via Portsmouth fairly frequently and always pick some up for the French freezer. They keep well and are a great treat.

Strawberry ones for me though.

They are revolting. Taste really synthetic.

The Strawberry and Kreme is soo good as is the Strawberry Gloss and the Glazed Raspberry.
Not so keen on the chocolate ones as I think the chocolate tastes a bit cheap.

I get the same feeling eating one as I would drunk texting an ex. Seems like a good idea at the time but end up regretting it and feeling all ashamed.

Strawberry and kreme is my fave. The millionaire's shortbread one is yummy too but a bit more sickly iykwim. Not keen on the others though.

They taste synthetic but it's one of those "so bad it's good" things. I love the plain, the maple glazed and the jam ones

I love all of them, but really fancy a cronut.

[homer simpson drool] mmmm doughnuts
Asda do quite a good own brand version of the original - obviously much cheaper.
We stayed at a hotel in the states once with free brekkie which was basically chocolate cereal or krispy kremes - I left at least a stone heavier..

They appear to be neither Krispy or Kremey.

I have had several opportunities to consume one. But I've never actually wanted to bring one to my lips.

Was just in Tesco and looked at them - one of them, a choc praline one I think was £1.75 for one, the cheapest was the glazed £1.35 - so expensive - makes me sound tight perhaps but really not sure I would pay that for one..........
