Pecan Pie Doughnut (Krispy Kreme) By @cinabar
On our way to Center Parcs last week we stopped at a service station that sold Krispy Kreme, and I spotted the new American Daydream doughnuts. We didn’t pick them up, as we were in a rush and on a tight schedule, but I regretted not having bought them. Once we were settled into the Center Parcs village we explored the supermarket on site and I was excited to see they too had Krispy Kreme, and the new Pecan Pie Doughnut was sitting on the shelf. This time we were definitely buying doughnuts!
My Pecan Pie Doughnut was a ring doughnut, topped with brown icing, nuts and a white chocolate drizzle. As regular readers will be aware, I’m a big fan of nuts, so knew this was going to go down well with me. The doughnut was firm but still fairly spongey. The taste was overwhelmingly maple syrup flavoured, which is from the heavy dose of icing. It was sweet and rich and like having maple syrup poured over it, but without the stickiness. The nuts were a lovely touch, and went well with the maple syrup flavour. They also added a nice bit of crunch to the texture. I have to admit the white chocolate was a bit lost, but it looked pretty. The maple syrup flavour was very overpowering, and I mean that in a good way! The Krispy Kreme Pecan Pie Doughnut was heaven!
They have also brought a peanut butter and jelly doughnut in their American Daydream range and New York Cheesecake. I might try and pick up one of the other flavours at the weekend, for research purposes you understand.
