REVIEW: Krispy Kreme Original Filled Coffee Kreme Doughnut

Krispy Kreme Original Filled Coffee Kreme Doughnut

What is the Krispy Kreme Original Filled Coffee Kreme Doughnut?

In my world, every day is National Coffee Day.

But according to the internet, it’s September 29, and according to Krispy Kreme it means it’s time for another filled doughnut. Coffee and doughnuts are a match made in heaven and Krispy Kreme takes that simple effective flavor pairing and applies it to its new Original Filled Coffee Kreme Doughnut, which is an Original Glazed filled with coffee Kreme.

How is it?

It’s hard to go wrong with this iconic duo, and KK has pretty much nailed it as far as execution goes. The Original Glazed is soft and pillowy with a crisp exterior and sweet vanilla-ish finish. The Kreme inside has plenty of bitter coffee flavor, but the Kreme’s sweet base mellows it. It’s got the wonderful sticky texture reminiscent of a Hostess product with a taste that reminds me a lot of a latte. There’s a solid coffee foundation and smooth milkiness that ties it all together.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Despite what the picture may look like, there was filling throughout except for that one cross-section I happened to cut at, so like most of my KK experiences the quality was on point.


Krispy Kreme’s Original Filled Coffee Kreme Doughnut is not a mind-blowing creation like almost anything that involves the chain teaming up with Reese’s. It’s also a tad below the Original and Chocolate Filled Doughnuts. But it’s a damn fine execution of one of the most legendary pairings of all-time.

    1. I feel like the special flavors they come out with are always milder than I would like: pumpkin, lemon, chocolate. I’m always expecting something definitive and different, but the flavors are very subtle. Or maybe the donuts just need to be bigger so I can get a proper taste?

    2. I agree. I think the rating you gave it on insta is on the mark, but since we don’t do half scores here I felt like it was more of an 8 than a 7, nothing to complain about. It also smelled like coffee when I washed my hair for 5 years so I’m a bit biased 😉
