The first thing I ate when I arrived in Australia back in January 2011 was a Krispy Kreme donut at the Sydney Airport.
Since then, it has become a little bit of a tradition (now shared with Mike as well) to get one every time I pass through Sydney.
We have been meaning to break that tradition for over a month now (since even before Meaghan’s visit) because there is a Krispy Kreme store in the city. So after a long wait and one failed visit – closing time and no donuts left – we finally did it!
We bought a pack of 6 donuts for $12.95 . So expensive compared to Tim Hortons at home, I know!
We got from left to right: Original Glazed, Caramel Latte, Raspberry Glazed, Choc Caramel Fudge, Apple Custard Crumble and Kookies & Kreme.
Verdict? The donuts are delicious. But they’re all made from the same batter with different toppings and fillings. Gets boring pretty fast. I miss the donut selection back home from Tim Horton’s with its different textures, consistencies and flavours.
The Choc Caramel Fudge was tasty but both Mike and I think it would’ve tasted much better if the flavours were reversed – caramel/butterscotch filling with a chocolate glaze on top instead 🙂
Kookies & Kreme – yummy filling!
Apple Custard Crumble – our favourite of the lot.
Would we buy these again? Yes, but definitely not more than 1 per person per visit. The donuts are good, but like I said, the dough is the exact same for every donut so excitement is quickly lost. Not to mention how terrible these are for your health 😛
