Krispy Kreme Singapore has unveiled 2 new flavours in their range of donuts, for National Day.
Introducing the White Chocolate Chilli Donut and the Caramel Chilli Donut.
While it’s new in Singapore, it’s not the first time Krispy Kreme has released chilli-flavoured donuts. Back in April, Krispy Kreme Malaysia released Caramel Chilli Donut as an April Fool’s joke.
However, the question here is, “is EVERYTHING really better with chilli?”
So, we bought and tried it.
Chilli On Donuts
The donuts might seem intimidating for those of you who cannot handle your spice, but they’re actually quite decent.
The White Chocolate Chilli Donut ($2.95) is basically a standard white chocolate donut with dried chilli flakes (like the ones you get at Pizza Hut).
We can barely taste the chilli, though the warmth of the spice does show up in the aftertaste.
The Caramel Chilli Donut ($2.95) was less sweet, compared to the White Chocolate variant, and had a stronger chilli taste.
Of the 2 chilli flavours, White Chocolate Chilli was the crowd favourite.
These 2 chilli donuts are available from now till 31 August 2018 at all Krispy Kreme outlets islandwide.
There’s another SG Donut ($3.30) that’s also a National Day special.
It’s a dense custard donut with frosting on the top. It tastes good and they’re very generous with the custard. However, it is quite saccharine after a few bites.
All in all, these new flavours aren’t as bad as we thought they’d be. But if you’re intent on trying the chilli ones, go for the White Chocolate Chilli.
Turns out, most things are really better with chilli, donuts included. Just maybe not caramel.
