Krispy Kreme type creme filled donut?

GinaJ Nov 25, 2007 08:27 AM

I used to love the creme-filled doughnuts they sold at Krispy Kreme and now discontined (even though strangely enough still advertised on their site).
I would drive 30 miles and up to get them.
Is there any alternative to these creme-filled doughuts at other doughnut shops in the Bay Area?

    Which creme filled one are you talking about that has been discontinued? You don't mean creme-filled in general do you? I was recently at the Union City one and they have the normal selection of creme-filled, cake, and of course the yeast raised krispy kreme donut hot off the conveyor belt. My favorite creme filled one right now is the cheesecake one.

      The regular creme-filled (glazed creme-filled) ones. That would be fantastic news!!
      I have tried 4 different Krispy Kremes on the peninsula without luck over the past 12 months. The sales assistants there confirmed that they didn't carry them any more.

        They said they discontinued the glazed creme-filled but it's back, at least at the Union City one.

          Very cool. Next time I'm in the East Bay - that's where I'm going!

      if you have a Dunkin Donuts near you, try the Bavarian Creme - it's close.

        There are no Dunkin' Donuts in the Bay Area.

        Though not technically a donut, Beard Papa's (cream puffs) might be the best cream filled baked good you've had in a long time.

          I'm in love with the bomboloni's at Boriana's Corner in the SF Ferry Building. It's an Italian doughnut that's filled. I love the custard but the nutella is good too.


          I would definitely drive 30 miles or more for one of these bomboloni's. But luckily for me it's just a 20-minute BART ride. :)

            That is excatly what I was going to suggest! I had one of those for the first time last weekend and now I crave them. Sadly, I live in Texas and am out of luck. I shared the custard filled one with my friend and you could see us both mentally struggling to not eat more than our respective half.
