Harvey's Donuts - "Hot & Fresh" - Anyone tried them?

  • 22

I was in a Harvey's recently and saw an advert for 4 mini "donuts" for $1.69 (when purchased with a burger). I did not take the plunge but am curious if anyone else has and how they were.

                        I probably won't be able to get there until Monday...but don't worry, I'm definitely on it :)

                          Hahaha! I knew I could count on you.

                          1. re: Full tummy

                            You absolutely can :)

        2. Yes, I had them a few months ago. The picure looked good but it was terrible.

          What we got were luke warm sticky donuts that were squashed and a mess because of the caramel.

          Not only that, the bag was socked in oil (not in a good way).

          1. First time I had them, I thought they were better than anything at TH. The second time I had them, they were greasier, but still better than anything at TH. I prefer them over the burgers.

              Talk about faint praise.... ;)

            2. I think I posted about this in the 2013 Doughnuts thread. I had them once. They were okay in a pinch for a doughnut craving but I also found them too greasy/oily. I probably wouldn't waste my "treat" count with them again.

              1. So, I went today and tried the doughnuts. After I ordered them, and I saw how they were made, I thought, OMG, what have I gotten myself into?! :))

                They don't actually make their own doughnuts. Instead, they use store-bought mini doughnuts...you know, the ones that come in the plastic containers. They fry them for about a minute, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar, and then drizzle caramel on them.

                All that said, they were actually pretty good...lol!

                  Your capper line made me laugh. Haha, ok, good to know.

                  1. re: kwass

                    Twice fried doughnuts??? Will you get them again?

                    1. re: Full tummy

                      I actually never go to Harvey's. I went specifically to try these doughnuts. But to answer your question, would I eat them again? Yes, if they were in front of me. Would I go out of my way to get them? Definitely not!
