Review: Krispy Kreme - Oreo Cookie Glazed Donut and Oreo Cookie Over-The-Top Donut

Krispy Kreme's Oreo Cookie Glazed Donut features an Original Glazed Donut covered in new Oreo Cookie glaze, filled with Cookies and Kreme, and finished with a drizzle of icing and Oreo cookie pieces, while the Oreo Cookie Over-The-Top Donut is an Oreo Cookie Glazed Donut topped with Cookies and Kreme filling, drizzled with chocolate icing, and topped with an Oreo wafer.

The donuts come as part of a Oreo Lovers Dozen for $15.99 in my area but I received these courtesy of Krispy Kreme.

The new Oreo Cookie glaze comes in a similar color to Oreo wafers but don't taste terribly different from the chocolate glaze that they offer on Fridays. It might be a little bit more bitter but it's every bit as sweet with a decently chocolaty flavor.

The Oreo Cookie Glazed Donut offers the same soft airy crumb of the Original Glazed Donut to go with a sweet chocolate flavor, a light bit of crunch from the Oreo cookie pieces, and a sweet, lightly-creamy flavor from the Kreme filling and icing. Basically, it's not all different from their regular menu Oreo Cookies and Kreme donut but is generally going to be fresher since it's made with a fresh donut and fresh glaze.

The Oreo Cookie Over-The-Top Donut offers much of the same flavor but differs in texture due to the large Oreo wafer on top that's almost the same diameter as the donut. As the wafer was a little stale (unpacked packaged cookies seem to go stale fairly quickly in the airy confines of a donut display) and hard, it didn't really break until my teeth almost met on its surface--but there's a soft donut to go through to get to that point. The result was an odd bit of eating that weirdly felt like the donut was getting in my way of eating the Oreo wafer. Maybe they should have included two Oreo wafers for a type of donut sandwich.

At the end of the day, both the Oreo Cookie Glazed Donut and Oreo Cookie Over-The-Top Donut are nice enough but seem to be more for visual appeal than an extra dose of Oreo flavor.
