As I mentioned in another review, I was at the grocery store this morning and picked up a snack to have at work. What I didn’t know at the time was one of my co-workers decided to purchase donuts for everyone in the office (something that isn’t overly expensive since we only have 6 employees).
When I saw they were Kwik Trip Glazer donuts, I really wasn’t overly enthused. I have purchased donuts from convenience stores in the past, including some that were from national brands, and I have found very few, if any, that really impressed me. The biggest problem with most of them is they either taste like they were baked a couple days ago or they are extremely sweet. I don’t mind foods made with sugar. But, I can only handle so much sweetness at a time.
In fact, when I saw the donuts, I considered simply passing on them. But, knowing she did spend money on them, I figured that would be rude and decided to give one a try.
I never thought I would say this but I ended up eating a second one.
One of the first things that impressed me about these donuts (which were simple, round donuts with a sugar glaze) was how fresh they were. As I said before, I have purchased quite a few donuts from convenience stores in the past and this was the first time I got the impression the donuts were freshly baked rather than something the store has had in a back room for a couple days before putting them out on the shelf. In fact, I think they were as fresh as the ones I get at my favorite bakery.
The other thing that impressed me was the fact the Kwik Trip Glazers knew just how much sugar was the right amount of sugar. I bit into the first donut thinking I would get the same heavy, sweet taste I get with most others. But, instead, I got a sweet taste that was much lighter and more enjoyable. In other words, I didn’t feel like my teeth were rotting out with every single bite.
I was so impressed with these; I think I might surprise my family this weekend by going out and buying a half dozen of them. If you are looking to buy donuts that offer unbelievable quality at a reasonable price, this is a brand of them I would recommend.
