Spicy Tomato Filled Doughnuts?
Aieeeee, when I saw this on the menu at Krispy Kreme, I knew I’d have to strap on my Try Anything Once Cojones and take one for the team!
So I bit into it and it was…odd. Not bad, exactly, but it definitely didn’t trigger the usual Step Away From That Bag O’Doughnuts warning sirens either. The doughnutty part was the usual Krispy Kreme bread, I think, but since an overwhelming percentage of KK’s sweetness usually comes from the glazes and stuffings, this came off more like a soft pizza without any toppings.
This did make me wonder what’s up with the Japanese junk food market, though – with even Haagen Dazs introducing veggie ice creams, I hope the new trend isn’t to blur the line between main dish and dessert. Because EW.
