Review: Krispy Kreme - Chips Ahoy, Nutter Butter, and Oreo Cookies & Kreme Donuts

Krispy Kreme's Cookie Classic Donuts include the Chips Ahoy Cookie Donut, Nutter Butter Cookie Twist Donut, and Oreo Cookies & Kreme Donut.

They cost $1.09 (may vary) but I was able to try these courtesy of Krispy Kreme.

The Chips Ahoy Donut consists of a yeast shell donut filled with cookie dough Kreme, dipped in dark chocolate icing, and then topped with Chips Ahoy cookie pieces and a mini Chips Ahoy cookie.

The Kreme did indeed give off a pleasant cookie dough flavor but the chocolate icing was overly sweet to the point that it washed out the other components. It was also light on the expected bitter notes associated with dark chocolate. Additionally, both the cookie pieces and mini Chips Ahoy cookie were stale to the point of softness and muted in taste.

The Nutter Butter Cookie Twist Donut features an Original Glazed Twist donut dipped in peanut butter icing and then topped with Nutter Butter cookie pieces and a peanut butter icing drizzle.

Like the Chips Ahoy donut, the Nutter Butter cookies pieces were soft and the donut was super sweet due to all the icing. However, the peanut butter flavor was strong enough to break through the sweetness.


The Oreo Cookies & Kreme Donut is a yeast shell donut filled with Oreo Cookies and Kreme filling, dipped in dark chocolate icing, and then topped with Oreo cookie pieces and a "white 'n glossy" drizzle.

As with the other two donuts, the chocolate wafers here were soft and combined with the Kreme were not really strong enough to deliver that signature Oreo flavor.

Of the three donuts, the Nutter Butter Cookie Twist Donut was my favorite as it really delivered on the peanut butter flavor while the other two tasted mostly like sweet icing and need to be pumped up with more of their respective cookie flavors.
