I tried Krispy Kreme donuts because they looked like they would taste delicious. Unfortunately, they don't. I bought the original glazed donut, which was decent, but was only marginally better than the ones from any neighbourhood bakery. My friend was unlucky in her choice of Chocolate Iced Custard Filling. The combination of deep-fried donut and saccharine custard filling was unpleasant.
The donuts are instagram-worthy, but I find more joy in looking at these donuts than actually eating them. Unless I develop a sweet tooth, I don't think I'll be back.
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.
