After months of hearing how amazing Dum Dum Donuts are, we finally had the chance to try them for ourselves. This review is all our own opinions.
We initially tried the Cronuts on our 2nd Day In Brighton. We tried the Cronutella Cronut which honestly left us pretty underwhelmed due to the lack of flavour, dryness and denseness of the Cronut. The small amount of filling tried to even it out.
The Salted Caramel and Lotus Biscuit Cronut was a lot better – we would recommend this option compared to the Cronutella based on our experience.
The second time we decided to try Dum Dum Donuts again was at Euston Station – to take home as a treat.
The Zebra Cronut was pretty good (so much better than the Cronutella) but it was still not living to all the hype. To be brutally honest we have had a better Cronut at Harrods.
Last but not least, the Strawberry Cheesecake Donut was such as disappointment. The filling was one of the worst fillings we’ve ever had in a Donut. Maybe it was a one off but how can you sell something as unpleasant as that?
Overall, we thought that Dum Dum Donuts are way overrated. For three Cronuts we paid £12 and for a pack of 6 Donuts & Cronuts we paid £18. In all honesty we would have been more satisfied with Donuts from Krispy Kreme – you can get 12 for £13.45. Even the donuts from the Pier would be more satisfying than these.
Would we recommend? No, you can get better Donuts & Cronuts for less money.
