Review: Krispy Kreme - Chocolate-Enrobed Krispy Juniors

Krispy Kreme Chocolate-Enrobed Krispy Juniors are mini cake donuts dipped in dark chocolate. Similar to Hostess Donettes, they come in a portable pack of six.

They don't actually sell these at any of my local supermarkets, I picked these up from the Krispy Kreme Blogger Summit. I'm not sure how much they cost but I would guess between $1 and $2.

Mini donuts are mini donuts, I've only had the Hostess ones before and these taste pretty much the same. I can't really imagine anyone making shelf-stable donuts that taste or feel any differently. Well, they could use a cheaper chocolate but then it doesn't taste so good.

The chocolate shell is made of decently rich dark chocolate and the crumb is a little dry. To be sure, fresh ones will always be better but these last longer. I think donut holes might keep their moisture a bit better than mini-donuts.

Between Krispy Kreme and Hostess mini donuts, I'm not sure that I could even tell the difference; if they were on a store shelf, side-by-side, I would go with whichever one was cheapest/on-sale.
