Although we both find Andrew Garfield adorable, it was agreed that Bim should write about these donuts. Who better to talk about the Krispy Kreme Spider-Man donuts than the guy who worships the webcrawler in the blue and red Spandex suit? Incidentally, it is also his birth week this week. Here’s the part where I
shamegreet him publicly: Happy birth dayweek, Bim!
What’s up, everybody? It’s me, Bim, from GeekOut.ph! I come to you bearing my opinions on the recent Spider-Man donuts because 1. I love donuts and 2. I like Spider-Man, so I would like to think my opinion bears some weight here. Okay, here’s a short background on the donuts. They were released a few days before the Amazing Spider-Man movie came out, most likely to ride on the hype the Spider-Man movie was enjoying. It’s a great way to sell circular deep-fried dough. They released two variants – the red and blue and yellow mask one and the more kick ass looking spider logo one.
The face mask is a regular donut that has a sugary coating on top and a strawberry filling. It looks pretty weird – like the way Spider-Man would look after he’s decided to retire and eat donuts all day. The yellow eyes don’t even make sense; in the movie, his eyes pieces were from dark sunglasses, which were mostly black.
The black one with the logo is a chocolate filled donut with powered sugar on top. The way they put the logo there is pretty clever and must take a long time to do. Where there’s the logo, there’s no powered sugar. Mind = blown.
If you remember, a few months back, we wrote about our opinions on the Green Lantern Krispy Kreme donut and I think it would make for a fair overview if we compare the Spidey donuts to those, just so you know where we’re coming from. Sad truth is, the Green Lantern donuts blew the Spidey donuts out of the water in both looks and taste. Sorry, Spider-Man; your movie was way better but your donuts kind of sucked. And here’s why.
I’ve never been shy about admitting that Krispy Kreme donuts are just way too sweet for me. They’re not bad, they’re just designed for people with one hell of a sweet tooth. That’s why I loved the GL donuts, they weren’t like most Krispy Kreme donuts I’ve tried. Unfortunately, the Spidey donuts fell under the “way too sweet” category.
Next big superhero movie would be Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Are we going to see any Bat-donuts from Krispy Kreme any time soon?
