I read about it in the Winston-Salem Journal first.
A chocolate covered kreme-filled doughnut? Nah. I’m good, thanks.
A chocolate covered Cheerwine kreme-filled doughnut? SIGN ME UP.
You know I bought them. I *had* to. You can only buy them by the half-dozen (which doesn’t sound nearly as cool as six-pack LOL) in NC and SC, so my PROFOUND apologies to my readers outside the Carolinas.
Yeah, the kids beat me to the photo op. Sorry about that y’all. Just pretend like there are two more doughnuts in the box, okay? And that the one in the top-left corner is intact…not sporting the scar of a finger digging in and raking off the top (and then running off and hiding, cackling gleefully).
Who puts a doughnut on a plate? *I* do. Well, when I want to take a picture of it. You don’t need a picture of my hands wrapped around a doughnut, do you? And besides, the plate is necessary for this:
Now I know how to make super-pink frosting…just add some Cheerwine to it!
So, you wanna know how it tastes, right?
The first bite was blah. Kinda normal. A bit of doughnut, a smidge of frosting. Nothing out of the ordinary.
The second bite had a bit of the kreme in it. I got a faint hint of cherry behind the chocolate.
The third bite had the bulk of the kreme. Angels descended from heaven. A voice from Above said “This is my gift to you.” Chocolate, cherry, and pastry all combined in harmony. All the world held hands and sang. It was beautiful, truly beautiful.
The glory of that third bite was quickly followed by my body screaming “SUGAR! SUGAR ALERT ZOMG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND WOMAN??!!??”
The final bite was a repeat of the first – doughnut, chocolate icing. It was the perfect follow-up to the sugar overload.
This is the first Krispy Kreme doughnut I’ve had where one was truly enough. A gracious plenty.
