Review: Krispy Kreme - Island Time Donut Collection

Krispy Kreme's Island Time Donut Collection features a trio of donuts: its namesake Island Time Donut, the Pina Colada Donut, and the Key Lime Pie Donut.

In my area, it costs $15.99 for the dozen but I received these courtesy of Krispy Kreme.

The Island Time Donut features an Original Glazed donut dipped in sky blue icing and decorated with:  graham crumbs for sand, original Kreme for clouds and a palm tree sugar piece. It looked really nice but wasn't all that interesting in terms of eating as it's a plain iced donut with extra sugar from the Kreme and sugar piece (the sugar piece is basically a shaped sugar cube). The graham crumbs were more for visual effect than any added flavor.

The Key Lime Pie Donut is a donut filled with Key Lime Kreme, dipped in lime green icing, topped with graham crumbs, and a classic Kreme dollop. The Key Lime Kreme offered a taste and texture like an enjoyable whipped Key lime pie filling, including the distinctive key lime flavor touched with a bit of tanginess and a moderate sweetness. The icing veered more into sweet than tangy with a milder lime flavor. Like the Island Time Donut, the graham crumbles didn't do much beyond looks.

The Pina Colada features an Original Glazed donut dipped in a Pina Colada-flavored icing, topped with Pina Colada-flavored Kreme, sprinkled with toasted coconut shreds, and finished with a candied cherry. As was the case with the Key Lime Pie Donut, the Kreme offered the bolder pina colada flavor, while the icing was like a soft echo of the same. It tasted of sweet coconut and notes of pineapple but without the tartness. The cherry added an some extra layer of flavor to keep it interesting.

Overall, Krispy Kreme's Island Time Donut Collection managed a fair variety of taste and textures between its three donuts. Of the three, I liked the look of the Island Time Donut best but the taste of the Key Lime Pie Donut the most.
