It has been a while that around Dubai there are sign boards advertising Krispy Kreme’s new Doughnut holes. While at Emirates Mall, I thought I’d pop by and try them.
The Mall of the Emirates branch is tiny. There is a big counter and just 1 row of about 5 tables for 2, each. They have a wide variety of Doughnuts, and on the top there are 4 trays filled with the new “Doughnut Holes”. At first thought they looked different from the advertisements and I was expecting that but I thought they would be smaller and more circular.. in a more unified balls, kind of way.
I ordered a box with 24 Pieces for 20 Dhs.
It was not as attractive in the box as in the pictures, but I would not judge till I tried them. They come in 7 Flavors (Although only 5 were available at the time): Chocolate Cake, Original Glazed, Vanilla Cake, French Toast Crunch, Banana Cookie Crunch, Mocha Cookie Crunch and Caramel Cookie Crunch.
Verdict: I could not taste anything special but they were not bad. I had the Mocha, Chocolate, French Toast, Caramel, Original and well.. they were average. I liked the Chocolate and the Original because they tasted like their Doughnuts. In all fairness, it is nicer and easier to have, but having a Doughnut isn’t a Military Mission now is it! I did not like them much. They are nice to try, maybe have some, but if you are going for flavor and taste, go for a normal Doughnut in whichever Flavor you wish! Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are usually very yummy.

I’d recommend you stick with a regular Doughnut. Try if you feel like it, they do resemble their respectful Doughnuts and aren’t bad.
