Today's Review: Tesco Red Velvet Doughnuts

Tesco sure have been taking a weird direction with their doughnuts lately, but it's nice to see that they've gone back to the sweeter stuff, though this time with a sweet twist. Yes, these are red velvet doughnuts, consisting of a deep red dough, covered with icing and sprinkles, and with a "cream cheese style" filling. Just like the real thing, right?

Well yeah, these are actually pretty good doughnuts. The dough is nice and heavy, verging on a cake-like texture. the filling is nice as well, it's soft, creamy, and certainly a little cheesy. It's not quite the real thing, but it's definitely a good effort that works well with the dough. The only problem I really had with these was the topping. The crunchy pieces are a nice touch, but as you can see in the picture, the icing was already pretty messed up by the time I got them home, and it only got worse as I ate them. It's a bit too runny for my liking, and distracts a little from the nicer stuff underneath.

Still, these are a good effort at making some interesting doughnuts. If you like red velvet cake, you're probably better off just buying a red velvet cake, but these are still worth trying, whether you're a fan of cake or doughnuts. 

My rating: 4/5
