Entenmann's Rich Frosted Donuts

Note:  This review was originally posted to my Epinions account.

I have a thing for sugar. Put me in front of a desert buffet and I'll probably try everything. When I saw that there were candies and deserts, like jelly beans and candy bars, on Epinions, I knew that I had something I could write about.

One product that I'm fond of is Entenmann's Rich Frosted Donuts. You're probably wondering why I'd buy these donuts out of all the donuts out there. After all, I've already said that I have a thing for Krispy Kreme. Dunkin' Donuts isn't that bad and I have one by where I work. So why buy a box of these?

Sometimes I don't want to go that far, so it helps to have a box handy. Yes, I could buy a box from the two aforementioned locations, but those are generally meant to be eaten right away. Their shelf life isn't always that long. (I realize that this isn't always a good thing, but who eats donuts for heath reasons?) Also, these donuts have chocolate frosting with a soft center. I can't get donuts like this at Krispy Kreme or Dunkin' Donuts. I like chocolate and I like soft food. Put the two together and you have something that I will at least try, if not probably like.

As I said, these donuts aren't meant to be health food, which is why I haven't eaten them in a while. Take a look at the nutritional information on a box or online and you'll notice that they have 31% of your total fat and 65% of your saturated fat for the day...per donut. That's not including the 17g of sugar.

That brings up my biggest complaint, which is that they come in a box of 8 full-sized donuts or in a box of 12 miniature donuts. Would it kill them to make a single-serving package? I don't want to buy a box and have it sitting around just waiting for me to eat another. Yes, I could share, but not everyone likes snacks like I do. They'd probably still sit there.

Despite the one big complaint, the donuts get four stars. I do like them, even if I don't always want to eat them. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone that's looking to bring a desert or snack to a meeting or just wants something for the kids. If you ever find them in single servings, please let me know.
