2019 Update: It was discovered that the company links were no longer live so they have been turned off on this post.


Last week I received this box.

Holey Donuts had sent me a variety of 12 donuts and 4 huge blueberry cinnamon rolls to try out. But wait- thats not even the best news. What brought us two together was the fact I had read about these donuts on another blog and they aren’t just “any” donut. These donuts are figure friendly. Almost sounded too good to be true. I mean, look at them!

Want to know what my favorites were in the box above?  The middle one in the bottom row (was a creme filled kind), the strawberry filled one next to it (I think it might have been strawberry shortcake),  and then almost all the others. Let’s talk about the blueberry cinnamon rolls below. They taste more like cinnamon rolls than blueberry. I like that. I wasn’t sure about a blueberry cinnamon roll but they were great for being a healthier version and they are huge!

Another thing I really appreciate about these donuts we tried (and I tried them all 😉 – I didn’t eat them all by myself tho) was that they weren’t too sweet. I like a good creme stick, etc…but some regular fatty kinds come with this “almost paralyzing” sugar shock taste, know what I mean? Not the donuts by Holey Donuts. They are honestly the best tasting low fat kinds of sweets I can ever remember tasting.

Everything was eaten up over the next few days. They came packaged  in a styrofoam cooler with dry ice.  We had some fun with the dry ice. But I’ll save that for another post.

Some info from Holey Donuts themselves…

Did you know the average donut has much as 480 calories?

Holey Donuts! 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!

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.

3 Cheers for the successful small businesses out there keeping the American entrepreneurial spirit alive.  We need more businesses like this starting up and helping the economy verses  fostering a dependence on the federal government to bail this country out. {There’s my political rant for the day 😉 }
