Holey Bang of a Giveaway

Holey Donuts Vs. Krispy Kreme.....Not Even A Competition!

Holey Donuts has the process down to a science....
We knew we had something very special, but we also knew that
the donuts would be very difficult to produce, having to be made individually by
hand, requiring skills that have mostly been taken over by machines today. These
premium, low fat gourmet donuts would require 22 steps from the mixing, hand
rolling, cutting, special patented cooking process; and that's all before we
hand fill and decorate each donut with the finest homemade care. One by one, we
then gently hand package and freeze the donuts before shipping them to you with
our carefully designed frozen FedEx delivery system. Once the donuts arrive at
your home, we encourage you to store your treats in the freezer, and then follow
the instructions on the box to have the ultimate, guilt free treat. It’s like
having your own donut shop in your freezer... ever had a warm donut? If you
haven't you need to try this. Through our little shop in New York (yes, we are
only mail order, sorry no store to visit yet) we have become the media darling.
First it was word of mouth, then the celebrities, then the media from New York
to Tokyo. -
Frank Dilullo, Founder of Holey Donuts!

HOLEY DONUTS!
Here is a review of each and every Holey Donut that I was given the wonderful opportunity to sample! Prepare to drool!

Jumbo Reduced Fat Cinnamon Bun
(340 Calories, 5g fat, 1.0g saturated fat, 2g fiber, 29g sugar, 8g protein)

Holey Donuts really has this recipe down (as with all of their goodies!). I mean not only are the Cinnamon Buns HUGE (the picture only shows half of one!), but they are everything that a cinnamon bun should be: big, fluffy, embedded with cinnamon, smothered in a sweet glaze and rolled into a plump spiral of deliciousness. Then, Holey Donuts takes it up a notch by nestling delightful apple bits within the doughy layers.

You may notice that these sweet rolls are a bit higher in fat, calories and sugar than the other Holey Donut Creations. HOWEVER, they are ginormous (yes, I realize that is not technically a word! Hah). Plus, Holey Donuts compares them to Cinnabon’s Caramel Pecanbon Cinnamon Roll here and, as you can see, Holey Donuts leaves Cinnabon rotting on the shelves!

Let’s just say that my not-so-health-conscious father ate two of these fluffy sweet rolls before I even got to try one!

Low Fat Lemon Vanilla Donut Holes
(4 Donut Holes: 170 calories, 3g fat, 0.5g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 14g sugar, 3.5g protein)

Oh boy! If you are a hard core donut lover, these little guys are just for you. They are coated with the special Holey Donuts! unique fat free glaze, which makes them absolutely irresistible. Pop one in your mouth and you will instantly smile! :DLow Fat Chocolate Crumb
(149 Calories, 3g fat, 0.6g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 9g sugar, 4g protein)
This is your traditional donut topped off with a delightful chocolate frosting and crumbly goodness. Simply Delicious. Low Fat Vanilla Crumb
(148 Calories, 3g fat, 0.6g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 9g sugar, 4g protein)
While similar to the chocolate crumb, the Low Fat Vanilla Crumb has a unique vanilla frosting, which reminds me of a sinful slice of birthday cake with every bite. Low Fat Caramel Crumb
(148 Calories, 3g fat, 0.6g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 9g sugar, 4g protein)The Low Fat Caramel Crumb donut is similar to the former two; but this time, the donut is enhanced by an enjoyably sweet caramel drizzle! Boston Cream Oreo Cookie
(218 Calories, 4g fat, 0.9g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 13g sugar, 5g protein)This dense, doughy, delightfully sweet donut is my all time favorite (which is hard for me to say because they are all so yummy!). Not only is the texture perfect, but the chocolate sauce and Oreo cookies melt after taking a spin in the microwave, enrobing the hot and fluffy donut. Then, as if that was not enough, there is a big dollop of Boston Cream filling that takes this donut over the top! I suggest that you click here and order a whole box of just the Boston Cream Oreo Cookie Donut. It is the best 218 calories you will ever eat. Apple Graham Cracker
(217 Calories, 3.9g fat, 0.7g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 16g sugar, 5g protein)While I can't compare this to any donut I have ever had, it tasted like a delightful apple infused dessert that will lure in all of you apple lovers (including myself)....hook, line and sinker! It is like your own personal cake....for about 200 calories! Need I say more?!

Reduced Fat Raspberry Vanilla Truffle
(217 Calories, 3.9g fat, 0.7g saturated fat, 1g fiber, 16g sugar, 5g protein)
Yep! It tastes just as sinful as it sounds (No, actually, it tastes better!). It’s like a raspberry-filled, personal sized cake. Yet, it still retains all of the beloved qualities of a hard core jelly donut. If you zap it in the microwave (as opposed to thawing at room temperature), then the vanilla frosting melts, the fluffy donut gets warm and the raspberry filling brings it all together into a heavenly combination. Absolutely Phenomenal. Only 217 calories and 3.9g of fat? Unbelievable!
I can’t imagine my freezer without these little gems anymore! They are the most amazing, delicious, soft, gooey, yummy things! Forget cake, I am serving Holey Donuts at my next birthday party! :D If you have never tried Holey Donuts, you better change that….like now! Because life is too short to miss out on these babies!

    My Jingle:

    Fluffed and puffed and full of flavor
    Holey Donuts are something you can savor!
    Easy, peezy, lemon squeezy
    Make a choice and open the freezy.
    Zap it and before you know
    Get ready to taste that gooey dough.
    Grab a fork or use your fingers
    The thought of waiting never lingers.
    So what, you ask, am I trying to say?!

  12. I'm confused if you're looking for more of a slogan or a jingle. If it's a slogan, I would say...

    Holey donuts: The fat fell through the center

    If it's a jingle...


    We're Holey Donuts
    With your healthy delight:
    Full flavor donuts
    Baked light and right.

    Cream, crumble,
    We've got it all.
    Store in your freezer
    from Spring to Fall.

  13. If you're stuck in a rut,

    sitting on your butt,

    with an empty gut,

    you would be a nut

    if you don't eat a Holey Do-nut!

  14. Here's my best jingle..

    Holey holey holey moley,

  16. Ooey, Gooey, oh-so-chewy
    The low-fat donut that doesn't taste gluey!
    Hey you, stop and put down that Krispy Kreme!
    Have a Holey Donut and still stay lean.

    Vanilla Crumb, I think you're the one,
    Or perhaps I'd prefer the cinnamon bun!
    The Boston Cream Oreo Cookie flavor?
    Now that is truly one to savor!

    So empty out your freezers and make some space!
    Sorry frozen pizzas, Holey Donuts will take your place.
    With all the tasty flavors, you simply can't go wrong.
    Go buy these yummy treats and sing the Holey Donuts song!

  17. All of those doughnuts look amazing! I'm all about the caramel and vanilla crumb! There's no way I could be trusted with all of those in my house, haha.

  18. There once was a time
    That do-nuts were no-nuts:
    High in fat, sugar, and calories.
    But Holey Donuts appeared,
    And oh boy, your stomach and mind
    Do they please!

    With so many flavors,
    from simple to wild,
    Out of your freezer will
    Other donuts be exiled!

    With one taste of these donuts,
    You'll never look back.
    Oh, Holey Donuts:
    You're my new favorite snack!

  24. Diet got you nuts--treat yourself to Holey Donuts!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a huge smile on my face for days,
    when I eat donuts with peanut butter glaze.
    eventually that smile turns upside down,
    when I realize I have gained much more than a pound.
    But not to fear,
    I know something that will slim down my rear.
    Holey Donuts is my new best friend,
    for now I'm so slim I can do a back bend.
    These donuts definitely don't taste like poo,
    so now I can have my cake and eat it too!

    hahahaha! This give-away rocks! I've got my fingers crossed!

  28. Old mother heezer
    went to her freezer
    to get herself a treat
    when she got there
    her freezer was bare
    and there was nothing to eat

    She looked low and high
    yet no snack did she spy
    Where was her sugary bliss?
    Her husband ate the food
    And Miss. Heezer brewed
    How could such a thing go amiss?

    She vowed to attack
    and then he came back
    with a box tied in red
    Holey Donuts! What a treat!
    These she just had to eat!
    So she kissed him instead.
