Holey Donuts Review by Lauren

Product sent by/Website:

I was sent donuts to try and review but this, in no way, will affect my true opinion.

Information from Site:

Did you know the average donut has 15-20 grams of fat and as much as 480 calories?

Our patented cooking process avoids deep frying, creating a light, fluffy donut with as little as 3-4 grams of fat and 150-250 calories. You'd actually have to eat 4 of our full-sized, delicious donuts to get the amount of fat in just one traditional donut. What's more amazing is that we do not use any artificial sweeteners or fat substitutes to make our great tasting donuts. Unlike other "lite" or low fat foods, nothing about these donuts tastes low fat.

Our donuts are hand-made, flash frozen and delivered via express mail to arrive at your door, picture perfect and delicious! Keep in your freezer for a great low fat and low calorie treat anytime!

My Review:

These donuts really are great. For the most part, I thought they tasted wonderful. I really can't believe that these are good for you! I'm a donut lover myself but it just makes you feel a little bad when you eat a whole one. It's like your stuffing yourself wiht so much BAD STUFF, but it just tastes SO GOOD. This is definitely a good alternative if you know something is coming up and you'll want donuts or a fun breakfast food even...if not, you can always freeze these. I'm actually a bit late on this review but I was able to see that if you tape the box shut every time you open it for a donut, and then put it back in the freezer, the donuts stay fresh. You just take them out and warm it up for a bit and there you go!! Very handy.

Holey Donuts has low fat cinnamon buns that are amazing. I felt like I was eating a regular one. It was still just as yummy and great like always, but a much healthier alternative. I'd definitely buy these again to have on hand...especially for a weekend!

One thing that I LOVED though and am craving even right now for (meaning I'd totally buy more) are the Classica Vanilla Frosted. OMG! Seriously, these were amazing. It's shocking it's not that bad for you!! You can see them in the picture's the ones with the pink sprinkles. I didn't try these, but the Pink Velvet Strawberry Frosted look amazing too. Mmmmmm. Both definitely look fitting for a girl's night, don't you think?

What do you all think though? Willing to try them out? Valentine's Day is coming up! Treat yourself, and don't feel so guilty!!!
