Review: Krispy Kreme - Banana Pudding Donut

Krispy Kreme's Banana Pudding Donut is a yeast shell donut topped with yellow icing and pieces of vanilla wafers, and filled with banana-flavored Kreme filling.

It's $1.19 for one or $9.49 for an assorted dozen at the closest Krispy Kreme.

The creamy filling had a light but distinct banana flavor and the shell had a airy, soft texture.

The icing on top actually made for a pretty thick (and pretty sweet) layer. It actually seemed to have a stronger banana flavor than the filling. The vanilla wafer pieces were a little stale though and might actually do a little better if they were mixed into the creme.

Overall, Krispy Kreme's Banana Pudding Donut was pretty good and my preferred donut from the recent promotion. It delivered the desired banana pudding feeling, but I'd rather just have either banana pudding or an Original Glazed donut... or maybe actual banana pudding inside of a donut.
