Review: Krispy Kreme - Banana Creme Eclair

Krispy Kreme's Banana Creme Eclair is basically a chocolate-glazed bar donut filled with banana-flavored creme.

I picked one up at a Krispy Kreme for $1.59.

The donut portion itself was very nice; a fresh, soft yeast donut.

The chocolate icing was really sweet though; mostly sugar glaze and not too much chocolate flavor (probably just a little bit of cocoa). I would have liked a darker and deeper chocolate flavor; more chocolate and less sugar.

The filling was creamy and featured a definite, if slightly artificial, banana flavor. It was good.

Basically, for Krispy Kreme's Banana Creme Eclair, the donut and creme were tasty, but the chocolate icing was too sweet and not chocolaty enough for my liking.

  2. The cream filling was sort of sourish... I found it a little off-putting.
