Disclosure: Explore With Ed received a free box of doughnuts from Krispy Kreme at St David’s in Cardiff to review a new range that launched in 2016, all opinions are my own. Post updated in 2021.
In 2016 Krispy Kreme launched new flavours to join their range of classic favourites including the original glazed ring.
The new flavours launched in 2016
Alongside my favourite, ‘Nutty Chocolatta’ (a doughnut filled with Nutella and sprinkled with caramelised hazelnuts), are these five drool-worthy flavours:
- Maple Crunch
- Salted Caramel Cheesecake
- Chocolate Firecracker
- Glazed Kreme
The maple crunch ring doughnut has been dipped in a shiny maple icing and then showered with gold dust and crunchy maple flavoured nibbles.
The Smores Doughnut has a creamy mallow filling that oozes out with each bite. This was the doughnut I wasted no time trying with a cup of tea, the fluffy filling and milk chocolate coating was an instant throwback to a holiday in America where we bought these by the box in Walmart. The UK version is finished with a white chocolate drizzle, mini marshmallows and crunchy pieces of shortcake – scrumptious!
Salted Caramel Cheesecake
The Salted Caramel Cheesecake flavour is quite sweet, definitely one for those with a sweet tooth.
The Chocolate Firecracker has a dark, rich topping infused with chilli and finished with an explosion of gold dust – a fitting treat for Bonfire Night. I’m not partial to the chilli and chocolate combination, but it makes a nice change from familiar sweet flavours.
The Glazed Kreme is similar to the Glazed Raspberry, except the fruit filling has been replaced with mallow.
Krispy Kreme Cardiff
My local Krispy Kreme store is located in St David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff and I have on several occasions sat inside and took up their doughnut and hot drink deal. It’s reassuring to know their coffee is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms and uses 100% Arabica beans.
