Unless you’ve been living in the Arctic tundra knitting your own igloo, I’m sure you have come across the delectable sweet treat – the Krispy Kreme Doughnut.
Actually, the first time I heard about them was when they were mentioned by Miranda in Sex & The City. But I digress. As usual.
Now there are Krispy Kreme stores popping up all over the UK, including my hometown of Cardiff and doughnuts are made fresh and delivered each day using the special yeast-raised doughnut recipe which came from a New Orleans French chef back in 1937.
There are 15 varieties of doughnut to choose from (as well as coffee and milkshakes served in their stores) and two of these have arrived just in time for Valentine’s Day.
|Krispy Kreme Honey Bee|
Honey Bee – filled with a smooth chocolate and hand-dipped in vanilla icing.
|Krispy Kreme Love Bug|
Love Bug – filled with with Strawberry mousse and hand-dipped in raspberry icing.
You can buy these separately or a part of your favourite Krispy Kreme Dozen – and either in-store or online. Honey Bee and Love Bug are ideal treats for Valentine’s Day and can be ordered now online for collection in-store on the 13th or 14th February.

We loved the smooth chocolate filling in Honey Bee and the soft strawberry mousse in the Love Bug. and found them to be a real indulgent treat. The Husband prefers crisps and nuts so there is one Love Bug just waiting to spend some time with me tomorrow. (Hurrah).

They offer a completely different taste from the more traditional doughnut – much lighter – although I suspect that sadly doesn’t apply to the calorie content. But who can quibble over something like that when faced with doughnuts named Reese’s Peanut Butter (my weakness!), Lotus Caramelised Biscoff or Triple Chocolate Cake?
A lovely idea for Valentines Gifts.
