The balance of flavors was a big strength here. The sweet maple icing paired well with the fresh doughnut and even sweeter Bavarian cream.
The cream is tasty, but our only complaint was that it doesn’t permeate the doughnut as much as we’d like. The cream started halfway down, leaving many bites to only have the “dough” portion of the doughnut.
The comparisons to the Maple Bar are quite appropriate. The only real difference is the addition of the cream.
Still, all in all, this is a nice fall treat that’s worth its price of $3.00. It’s sure to satisfy people looking for a sugar fix as they settle in for the chillier days that the season brings.
