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

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.
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).
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.
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!
