Review: Holey Donuts!

Have you tried Holey Donuts yet? If not, you don't know what you're missing! Holey Donuts is a new company that sells ultra low fat donuts and cinnamon buns in a variety of delicious flavors and they are goooooood!

Did you know the average donut has 15-20 grams of fat and as much as 480 calories? Holey Donuts has a patented cooking technique that avoids deep frying. They create light, fluffy donuts with as little as 3-4 grams of fat and 150-250 calories! And... they don't use any artificial sweeteners or fat substitutes!

DH and I were recently given the opportunity to try 3 boxes of their awesome cinnamon buns. I will admit I was a little nervous to tell my husband that they were low-fat... so I waited until after his first few bites until I spilled the beans. Verdict? He didn't believe me! He actually made me pull the box out and show him! We tried the jumbo (original) cinnamon buns, the mini (original) cinnamon buns and the jumbo blueberry cinnamon buns. They arrived at our house frozen and packaged in dry ice. We stored the buns in the freezer and took a few out at a time to thaw everytime we wanted one. (And with them being this low in far - you can have your sugar fix without feeling guilty!) The cinnamon buns were the perfect blend of sweet and gooey goodness that you'd expect from a full fat cinnamon bun! We heated them up in the microwave a little bit and they were absolutely delish!!!

The only downside I've found of Holey Donuts is because they are flash frozen and sent express shipping - the shipping costs are rather high. So I reccomend buying a lot at one time, or having friends go in on your order with you and splitting the cost. Seriously, they are worth it!

BUY IT: Thursday, February 18th only Holey Donuts will be on sale for $5.99 a box (Regular prices are from $11.95 - $18.95))!!!! All cinnamon buns will be half price as well! Limit of 5 boxes per order, no coupon code needed!

Have you tried Holey Donuts? Will you now? LMK! :)

I heard a lot of stuff about it but haven't tried it yet. I'm planning to buy those especially that they also have cinnamons. Cinnamons, cinnamons, I love cinnamons. Thanks for this review, I almost forget about this product if not for your review, it could have slipped off my mind.
