REVIEW: Krispy Kreme Original Filled Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme Original Filled Doughnuts

What are Krispy Kreme Original Filled Doughnuts?

Krispy Kreme’s iconic Original Glazed Doughnut FILLED for the first time ever with either classic White or Chocolate Kreme.

How are they?

I love the Krispy Kreme Original Glazed, so I went into this with pretty high expectations, and I’m happy to report that those expectations were met.

Krispy Kreme Original Filled Doughnuts White

Most people with common sense and taste buds keen on sugary splendor understand the simplistic power of the light and airy Original Glazed, and all of that precision is on display with this new iteration. KK’s Kreme filling is another one of my favorite offerings from them so if you combine it with its already established OG it’s downright sweet deliciousness.

I akin the White Kreme filling to a slightly fancier version of the white stuff you’ll find inside of a Twinkie, but what’s on the outside is much more refined so the Kreme is even more welcomed in the oddest of trashy perfection. There’s a slight vanilla note to the filling but it’s mostly sweet with a creamy squishy texture that’s awesome against the subtle crack of the hardened glaze.

Krispy Kreme Original Filled Doughnuts Chocolate

The Chocolate Kreme version is equally good, with a bit more contrast that edges towards dominance over the gentler flavor of the glaze. The filling tastes a lot like jarred cake frosting, and I love it. Only a hint of bitterness makes its way through and I’m reminded of some kind of inside out cupcake that bursts with an absolutely satisfactory amount of chocolaty bliss.

Is there anything else you should know?

It’s hard to say how these could be much improved. Maybe a touch of crunch on top to a give a bit more of a textural pop? I hope that this is just the beginning of the OG filled saga that finds its way to peanut butter and caramel and lemon and quite frankly any creamy filling Krispy Kreme wants to bless us with.


These are terrific. Bursting with filling, topped with a cute little drizzle squiggle, and absolutely on par with the quality I’ve come to expect from Krispy Kreme.

  1. These look good! The chocolate filing doesn’t look as good as the cream filling, but I’ll take your word for it. Wished there were more Krispy Kreme stores around, the closest one to me is a 55 minutes away drive. Too far for me unfortunately.

  2. Damn. They know how to fill those donuts on the bay area. Mine had no where near the amount of your original glazed stuffed.
