Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Apple Cider Donuts

Trader Joe's Apple Cider Donuts review from bakeat350.net, weekly review series
Happy Sunday, friends! We hit Trader Joe's right after Mass this morning. We were getting hangry. Last week when Mr. E suggested trying the donuts, I looked at the calories (320) and said no. This week, it was..."yes, and maybe let's have two!"

All of the photos were taken IN OUR CAR because we couldn't even wait to get them home to try them.

You'll find Trader Joe's Apple Cider Donuts in the baked goods section. In our store, that's at the back of produce. They're cake donuts made with apple cider and coated in cinnamon sugar. A box of 6 donuts is $3.99.

He says: It's been a while since I've had a donut, let alone a cake donut. And this was a first for me from TJ's. It was moist and generously coated with sugar. Perfect texture, great shape, but the flavor was a bit ho-hum. I'd still eat another one without being forced, but if it were part of an assortment, I'd go with another choice.
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

She says: My favorite donuts are cake donuts (I can skip a traditional glazed any time), so these are right up my donut alley. That sounds weird. Apple Cider Donuts are not a thing here in Texas, so these are my gateway...and I approve. A slight hint of apple, not too heavy on the cinnamon, sweet and cakey, but not dry. I like that the outside had a bit of a "crust." Yes, please, I'll have another!

  1. I love these! I discovered them last year and now consider them an annual tradition (akin to Girl Scout cookies). I can count on one hand (or maybe 3 fingers?) the number of times I eat donuts each year, and these make the cut! Because of these donuts, I was driven to try an apple cider donut in Vermont this summer and they didn't measure up (TJ's are so much better! Not greasy!).
