I recently went to Tesco and found Strawberry Iced Ring Doughnuts in their bakery.
I love doughnuts, but I’ve always gone for ones with a brown top… Chocolate, toffee, caramel, fudge. That’s it. I always lean towards brown desserts in general, because you know, brown = chocolate = deliciousness, right?
In an attempt to vary my brown looking instagram feed, I figured I need to stray outside the box I’ve created for myself when it comes to sweet treats.
Strawberry Iced Ring Doughnuts
Pretty much the only bright coloured option, I popped a box of four strawberry iced ring doughnuts in my trolley.
To be honest, I wasn’t entirely looking forward to them, so I also popped a bag of Madelaines, Nutella and some chocolate in my trolley too – just in case.
Why have I never had these before? Seriously, why??
Well I can imagine why… I’ll often be heard saying “fruit is NOT a dessert”, and as these were STRAWBERRY iced ring doughnuts, I had always been put off.
Yes, strange reasoning, I know. That’s just how my mind works.
This is how good they were – I opened the pack in the car before leaving the Tesco car park, something I very frequenty do. I ate one – and then I think I died a little inside, for all the years I’ve snubbed these strawberry iced ring doughnuts previously.
Yes, I LOVED it! El oh vee ee dee’d it!
How it tasted
The actual dough was so soft, so light, and just sweet enough – beautiful. The icing was gooey, sticky and sweet – but not ‘sting your sensitive teeth’ sweet. It had a gorgeous flavour, of almost strawberry milkshake, but with a bit more zing to it. Without being too zingy – I wouldn’t have liked that.
In comparison to my recent Krispy Kreme donut this was just a delicious ring of perfection.
I won’t lie to you – I ate three of them in one day. And I licked the last one to make sure no one else would want it.
In conclusion I will most definitely be having these strawberry iced ring doughnuts again, and I really recommend them.
Of course now the problem is I have years worth of catching up to do!
