About a year ago I went to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet for the first time with my mum and my nana. They’ve got so many fantastic shops and restaurants and I spent so much money there but one thing I bought in particular was my first Krispy Kreme doughnut.
They didn’t have a shop there, it was a Krispy Kreme van parked in the walkway so there wasn’t a lot of choice because it wasn’t very big. I had enormously high hopes because there’s obviously a lot of hype around Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but I was disappointed!
I chose the apple pie doughnut and it was hard and dry. The flavour was okay but the texture was awful and in the end I couldn’t finish it which, if you know me at all, is completely out of character! I love any and every kind of doughnut imaginable.
That terrible doughnut has tainted my view of Krispy Kreme forever so I’ve not had another since. They’re expensive so I don’t want to waste my money, but I think I should give them another chance.
Firstly, they wouldn’t be as popular as they are if all Krispy Kreme doughnuts were as bad as the one I had. People wouldn’t waste their money on a bad doughnut if they were cheap, never mind if they were as much money as Krispy Kreme!
Secondly, because I bought it from a Krispy Kreme van rather than a store I don’t know if that would have made a difference to the quality. It could have been bad because it was an old doughnut left over from the day before or perhaps they’re not made fresh when you buy them from a van.
Also there’s loads of types of Krispy Kreme doughnuts so maybe the apple pie one just isn’t for me. I could try some of the other ones and see whether I like those better. If you’ve got any recommendations please let me know in the comments!
I’ll do some research, have a think and I’ll definitely try another Krispy Kreme doughnut. Maybe I could do a follow up post and let you know how it goes? I really want to love Krispy Kreme because I love doughnuts and I know a lot of people think they’re fantastic.
