Krispy Kreme Donuts in Singapore: How Do They Taste?

At Krispy Kreme’s opening last Saturday in Singapore, I bought six donuts from the popular American chain – braving the long queue to do so. (See my earlier blog post).

Here are the results of my Krispy Kreme taste tests.

Original Glazed

Original Glazed

This is the donut flavour that I always buy whenever I visit Krispy Kreme stores in Australia. In fact, many Singaporeans are known to purchase boxes of these Original Glazed donuts to bring home when they go overseas.

For the Singapore version of this donut, I was pleased that the standard and consistency has been reproduced perfectly – it was comparable to the ones I’ve tried. The donut was hot and fluffy when I bit into it and the shiny glaze was also done to perfection.

I will certainly buy an Original Glazed donut again – if I find myself near Tangs and have a craving for a good donut. I can certainly see why this is Krispy Kreme’s signature item.

These donuts may be a little on the high side at $2.60 each, but the taste of these sugary treats is well worth the money.

Cookies and Cream

Cookies and Cream

This donut comprises of vanilla glazing mixed with crushed Oreo cookies on the top.

I thought this donut tasted quite good. The vanilla glazing gave the donut a unique flavour, which I quite enjoyed. However, the Oreo cookies could have been crunchier – these were a bit soft when I bit into them, due to the glazing. But still, this is one of the better Krispy Kreme flavours and I would possibly buy it again.

As well, the donut is just as fluffy as the Original Glazed one.

New York Cheesecake

This is a filled donut with a cream cheese centre and a baked layer of cheese on top.

The cream cheese was quite sweet and after a few bites, I wasn’t in the mood to eat it any more – even though I consider myself as having quite a sweet tooth. However, the texture was really soft and the donut was moist.

 Red Velvet

Red Velvet

Red Velvet

As the name suggests, this is a red colour donut. It is decorated with white vanilla icing and sprinkled with red powder on the top.

For this donut, I thought that the vanilla icing was too overdone. Also, there seemed to be more icing than donut and is a flavour that I may not be in a hurry to buy again.

Glazed Vanilla Cake

Glazed Vanilla Cake

Glazed Vanilla Cake

This is an interesting donut, because it is a combination between a donut and a cake and is glazed on the top – similar to the Original Glazed donuts.

This seemed to be more like a cake, rather than a usual donut. It was quite soft and broke off easily when I bit into it. I’m not sure whether I like this one though – I still prefer the more traditional donuts.

But at least the Glazed Vanilla Cake was not as sweet as some of the other donut flavours that I have tried.

 Glazed Chocolate Cake

Glazed Chocolate Cake

This donut is similar to the Glazed Vanilla Cake but instead of vanilla, chocolate is used – as the name suggests.

The addition of the chocolate made this donut taste nicer than the Glazed Vanilla Cake one. I quite enjoyed the chocolate flavour because it wasn’t so strong that it overpowered the whole donut.

Overall Comments

I think I will still be sticking to the Original Glazed flavour donut at Krispy Kreme, as these are really first-class – and amongst the best donuts that I have ever tasted.

With the exception of the Cookies and Cream flavour, the rest were all a bit too sweet for me.
