Review: Krispy Kreme - Honey Donuts

Krispy Kreme Honey Donuts come in three varieties: the Honey Pull Apart Donut, the Honey Bee Donut, and Honey Cake Donut.

The Honey Pull Apart Donut is available in a 4-count box (which goes for $7.69 near me), while the Honey Bee Donut and Honey Cake Donut are available as part of the Honey Lover's Dozen ($16.99 near me). I received these courtesy of Krispy Kreme.

The Honey Bee Donut​ takes an Original Glazed Donut and dips it in yellow icing before decorating it with black buttercreme and two mini cookie "wings." The wings were basically soft (from sitting out) mini Nilla (or Nilla-like) wafers, while the rest of the donut tasted like an Original Glazed Donut with an extra layer of sweetness from the icing. A bit of caution is warranted in eating it as the black food coloring in the buttercreme will probably stain quite a bit if it gets on any fabric.

The Honey Cake Donut​ features a glazed Sour Cream Cake Donut drizzled with honey icing and finished with an oat crisp topping​. The donut portion offered a bit more richness than a standard cake donut, while the icing added a slight honey flavor. The oat crispy topping was lightly crispy with a light toasted oat flavor.

The Honey Pull Apart Donut is a glazed, segmented, pull-apart donut that's drizzled with salted honey icing. It's basically an Original Glazed Donut but with a slightly different form and salted honey icing. It had the same airy texture and sweet glaze but added on bit of honeyed sweetness with just a touch of salt.

Between the three Krispy Kreme Honey Donuts, the Honey Pull Apart Donut exhibited the most honey flavor while the Honey Cake Donut had a slight Honey Nut Cheerio feel, but both could have pushed a stronger honey flavor (maybe with a honey glaze instead of regular glaze). The Honey Bee Donut had the honey bee look but not the honey flavor. Overall, the Honey Donuts weren't all that different from Krispy Kreme's regular donuts but do enough to pique some interest.
