Krispy Kreme have been up to stealth mode antics again and have seemingly released 2 new nutty doughnuts without shouting from the roof tops about it. You would have thought given the who-ha over the release of the Nutella Doughnut that they may have made more of a deal about their new additions – Krispy Kreme Nutty Strawberry and Nutty Chocolate.

Onto the Nutty Strawberry doughnut.
Visually it looked rather pretty and one of the reasons I opted for this one rather than its hazelnut topped compadre, was the addition of strawberries.
Taking their already scrummy Original Glazed they have decided to dip it in a hazelnut & cocoa topping & sprinkle with freeze dried strawberries. Nothing ground breaking but I do find this far more appealing than the Nutty Chocolatta. As expected I was met with a lot of sweetness from the fluffy soft doughnut which was added to by the sweetness from the chocolate topping. The topping itself was relatively thick, soft and a little gooey, and had that signature nuttiness to it. My problem lies with the strawberries. They don’t exactly bring much to the table aside from a little chewiness. Their flavour can be detected on its own but sadly is completely lost against the cocoa hazelnut coating.
As a whole this is one sickly sweet nutty doughnut and I am not convinced that its counterpart would be any less so. Although its a tasty doughnut and serves its nutty purpose, it isn’t anything to rave about, nor is the Nutty Chocolate which Miss Snack Warrior reviewed a little while back. It seems perhaps Krispy Kreme may have missed a bit of a trick here, would anyone else agree?
Nonetheless don’t forget to get your Krispy Kreme Bingo on, you have until the 4th September to be in with a chance of winning some prizes, unless I beat you to it!
