Krispy Kreme's Oreo Cake Donut, or "Cookies and Kreme Cake Donut," features a chocolate cake donut made with a blend of Oreo cookie pieces, topped with white icing, more Oreo cookie pieces, and, a dollop of blended Oreo-flavored Kreme with Oreo cookie pieces atop the donut's hole.

The nearest Krispy Kreme sells them for $1.19.

Biting into one of these reminded me a lot of eating a cupcake, which I guess shouldn't be a surprise with a cake donut and Kreme for frosting.

The chocolate cake donut was moist and had a bit of dark chocolate notes, which I figure comes from the Oreos, and isn't too sweet. It was however glazed and iced which was really pushing it sugar-wise.

The little Oreo pieces on top add a bit of that familiar Oreo crunch and contrasts well with the soft donut.

The Oreo-flavored Kreme was really tasty and like cookies and cream ice cream, but as a whipped topping. It was thick enough to balance on the edges of the donut's hole without falling through.

Overall, I liked Krispy Kreme's Oreo Cake Donut. It's like a fried Oreo cupcake and every component had a little bit of an Oreo touch to it. The glaze plus icing made it a bit overly-sweet for me though.
