When I first tried the donuts after the shop opened, i found them to be really nice, and my opinion still stands. However, its the original glazed that is exceptional, the rest of the other flavours are delicious too but a tad too sweet for my liking.

The thing that I like about them so far is that they have not mass opened chains of shops, which keeps their quality control at good levels and the donuts are of a good quality consistently. While they are quite expensive, the original glazed donuts are worth buying as a treat once in a while, as they are relatively sweet and not so positive on the health side.

Do note that if you want to buy the donuts, the queues are long and the service staff can be rather slow albeit being friendly, so do be prepared for a wait, and if you are lucky, the shop do at times give out free glazed donut samples to waiting customers.

Not worth the hype

I've tried Krispy Kreme in England before and I liked how they tasted, and they were pretty affordable, so I was really excited when they were opening in Singapore.

Much to my disappointment, the donuts were insanely overpriced! Why would the same donuts cost £2 for 4 on one side of the world and close to $3 for one on the other?

They are good donuts but they are really overpriced and a lot of people don't even see how badly they're being ripped off!

The lines on the day of the opening were sooo long and I personally really don't think it's worth all the hype. All the pictures you see on Instagram? The ones where your friends rave about how good they are? They're doing it for the discount that Krispy Kreme gives when you promote them. It's not that good, trust me.

Nothing Fancy about Them

After months and months of non-stop raving abouot Krispy Kreme from my friends, I decided to give in and check out these hyped-up donuts. Here I though their donuts will be the King of Donuts which may cause me to have a food-gasm from my first bite.

Boy, do I beg to differ! It was like any old familiar donuts. They tasted like every other donuts I've had in my life. There's nothing special about them, other than several different flavours they offer.

Priced steeply, one can only whine about them being rather similar to Dunkin Donuts, but just made with their own version of "gold". I honestly think that all the hype for Krispy Kreme was for nothing. I strongly suggest that anyone who is on a tight budget and has cravings for donuts, should head to J.Co or Dunkin Donuts instead.

When Krispy Kreme first opened in Singapore, there was a huge hype which prompted me to buy some of these donuts to try for myself, although I'd already tried Krispy Kreme donuts in Japan a few years back.

I have a very sweet tooth and so to me, the classic glazed donuts were excellent. However, I felt the donuts were way overpriced. Some of my schoolmates managed to purchase the Krispy Kreme donuts and were selling them in school to raise funds for a cause. However, even at the reduced price, each donut still cost over $2. While the donuts are excellent, I don't think they're worth $2.

I think they're great as a treat once in awhile, but for a regular snack? No thanks. I can get cheaper snacks of the same quality elsewhere.

Surrounded by the buzz of my friends and the constant feed on my timelines about the opening of Krispy Kreme, I decided that I had to take a day off to queue for the "Legendary" donuts and try them myself.

Fortunately for me, a friend was kind enough to bless me with a box of 6 Krispy Kreme Donuts. With high expectations, I took a virgin bite of from the donut only to screw my face up in disgust. The taste that filled me was one that was overly sweet. In addition to that, it felt as if were taking a bite of sugar. Definitely something that was not to my liking. Despite the assorted flavours that came in the box, most of them tasted similarly. The chocolate was too sweet and the toppings on it piled on to the repulsive sweetness of the donuts.

Moral of the story for me: never trust the buzz and other's opinions unless I've tried it myself. Definitely not one to buy another box again.

The opening of KK chain in Singapore was super hyped up, but I was disappointed when I made a trip down to check it out for myself.

Online, it was pictured to be a perfect little cafe to sit down and enjoy your donut. However, in reality, it it located right smack in the middle of never-ending waves of crowds. Definitely not a place for people like me who seek peace and quiet.

As for the donuts, they did not taste extraordinary, and were not worth it for the long queuing time and to make a trip to town for.

Given the hype surrounding the opening of Krispy Kreme's outlet in Singapore, I find that the donuts are just a little too overpriced.

The queues are ridiculously long even during off peak hours but I find that KK has adapted well to this huge demand by providing menus along the queue so that you can immediately place your order once its your turn to do so, causing little hassle.

Take nothing away from the doughnuts though for they were the best doughnuts I have ever tasted. The sugar glazed donuts are definitely a treat and though I had half a dozen of them to myself, I could really do with more. I most definitely will get more doughnuts from KK but that will be once the long queues die down.

Having tried a few of their flavours, I find their donuts over the top. Over-priced, over-sugared and overrated.

I tried their Original Glazed donut, and it was too sweet, even for someone with a sweet tooth like me. It was so overpowering that I could only eat half of my donut. The Cookies and Cream donut is worse, as the overload on white chocolate makes you feel "gelat" after a few mouths, plus the sweetness is sinfully bad. The Cappucino was also overpowered the sweet glaze.

I also tried their Red Velvet, which was like a cake shaped in a donut. I guess it would have been fine on its own, without the sweet glaze on top. The glaze feels like you're eating a tablespoon of pure sugar.

Maybe people are just excited over the novelty of it, and the cool points they perceive to get when they Instagram a picture of Krispy Kreme donuts or be seen with a box of them. The donuts were disappointing, and I'd rather patronize other more wallet (and heart) friendly donut outlets in Singapore.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts are undeniably delicious, especially for someone who has a sweet tooth like me. The sweetness that an original flavoured doughnut brings out certainly amazes and keeps me in awe! Adding on, it doesn't get soggy as long as it is kept refrigerated but it will be better if you can eat it right away!

However, despite complimenting for its nice texture and taste, I personally find that they are over-priced. Although they are, indeed, coated and filled with certain flavours that other bakeries may not have been able to provide the doughnut-lovers for, it just doesn't make sense to purchase a doughnut at such an exorbitant price, at least for me.

Of course, having that said, I would still recommend for those who haven't tried to have a taste of it, especially the original flavoured Krispy Kreme doughnut. It is really unique, both in texture as well as in taste!

I don't know what's up with us Singaporeans going crazy every time some foreign brand opens up a stall here ala Tim Ho Wan. The week Krispy Kreme opened in Singapore, the line was a good 100 metres long!

Come on people, its not THAT good. No donut can possibly be worth queueing more than 30 minutes for. Ok maybe its easy for me to say because I had already tried it once in KL.

That being said, I was quite blown away the first time I ate KK. IMO, only the regular sugar glazed donut lives up to the hype. It looks unassuming at first impressions - a donut with a thin, translucent sugar glaze coating over it. Nothing fancy about it, but damn does it taste good.

Moral of the story: To enjoy it, give it a few months to let the queue die down, and go in with zero expectations.
