Key Lime Cheesecake Doughnut -Krispy Kreme : Collingswood, NJ
The original, glazed, Krispy Kreme doughnuts are amazing, but their seasonal flavors have always been a bit of a let down. Right now the company is promoting 2 different key lime donuts: Key Lime Cake and Key Lime Cheesecake. Since key lime is one of my favorite flavors, I am giving these a shot.
This cheesecake-doughnut is topped with graham cracker pieces and a tangy lime icing. Inside, there is supposed to be a creamy key-lime-cheesecake filling.
Now, when I took a bite I could taste the toppings and the cake doughnut, but there was no filling. The dough is fluffy and sweet, like a traditional Krispy Kreme, and the toppings add a nice graham cracker texture and flavor, but there was barely any lime. It took several bites before I managed to find anything inside. Once I did find some filling, there was only about a tablespoon’s worth. It was surprisingly tangy and delicious, but there wasn’t enough to give me a real ‘key lime’ flavor. This ended up tasting like a graham cracker doughnut.
I got a bum doughnut. I’m not happy with the filling to doughnut ratio, but I could see this being really yummy with the proper amount of filling.
