Product: Katz Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Donuts – $6.99
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that I’ve been blogging a lot about chocolate things. Donuts, cookies, donut holes. And…honestly, you’d be absolutely correct. I won’t deny it. I have nothing to deny. Because, you see, I’m clearing things out. I’m making better decisions, but, for the sake of my budget and my pride, I’m going through the items I have…devouring them…then replacing them with better choices.
Hence…the massive blogging on all things…totally not good for me.
That being said, I am certainly enjoying each and every tasting thus far. Because, I won’t lie, I love donuts and cookies and all that stuff. It is no secret that I have a sweet tooth…and an addiction to all things delicious…like peanut butter.
So, what better way to enjoy things like…chocolate…than tripling it?
And that’s what the amazing Katz Gluten Free does with these donuts. Katz Gluten Free, as many of you know, is one of my favorite gluten-free food providers. With a line-up of completely gluten free breads, pies, cookies, muffins, cupcakes, pastries, pizza crusts, and yes…donuts…it seems like that have a little bit of everything at a very high standard and quality. I have never not liked a Katz Gluten Free product. And, one thing I totally love about Katz Gluten Free is that they offer to send you a free sample pack of their products (you just pay shipping) so you can try out a little bit of what they have to offer. No, donuts and pies are not included, but other goodies are. Trust me…it’s worth checking out, if you haven’t already. And if you have, I believe you can order one sample pack a year…so…feel like revisiting some of Katz Gluten Free standards…reorder!
Now…where was I?
Awhile back, I realized that Katz Gluten Free had put out some new donut flavors without me knowing about it. How I missed this announcement, I don’t know. So, naturally, I did what any Katz Gluten Free lover does. I ordered a box of each of them. And, since then, I have been slowly making my way through them. The new flavors are all fantastic…and the donuts, as always, are what I expect from Katz. But…you throw the words Triple Chocolate on there…and…you know you’re going to be WINNING!
The Katz Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Donuts are rich, soft, and gooey (if you warm them up for 20 seconds in the microwave like I do!). There is nothing a true chocolate lover wouldn’t like about this. The cake donut is so soft. I mean, my fork (yes…I eat donuts with a fork…I’m a princess!) sliced right through it. And it was moist and soft. Not heavy and dense…and with gluten-free baked goods, that density can be a killer. This was light and airy and just amazing. The cake had this rich chocolate decadence to it. Then, it’s topped off with a dark chocolate frosting…like a smooth ganache. And…WOW. Chocolate utopia. And then…just to add to the awesomeness of this already chocolate-y treat…chocolate chips are sprinkled over the top. Chocolate euphoria. It reminded me of the chocolate pudding cake I used to beg my mom to make for me every birthday I had. Just a chocolate lover’s dream. I mean…love in every bite. I’m sad I only have two more days before they are gone from my life. But…this one was worth saving until last.
Let’s talk about ingredients! The Katz Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Donuts are made from the Katz Gluten Free Flour Blend (tapioca starch, white rice flour, corn starch), water, palm oil, sugar, eggs, chocolate chips, confection sugar, cocoa, canola oil, baking powder, natural vanilla extract, salt, xanthan gum, agar, calcium carbonate, and calcium sulfate. These are gluten free, dairy free, and soy free.
Now…the hard part. Nutrition facts. Nutrition facts on goodies like donuts never look good when put out there. But…it does help to know what you are putting in your body. A serving of the Katz Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Donuts is 1 donut. You might be tempted to eat all 6. I know I was. But don’t. Trust me…don’t. You’ll regret it in the end. Stick with one, which…I did. One donut will provide you with 250 calories and 14 chocolate covered grams of fat. This one donut will also provide 20 mg cholesterol, 240 mg sodium, and 16 grams of sugar. It is a definite sugar-laden treat. Which is why I don’t eat these very often. And, finally, you will be devouring 1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Trust me…this donut will not make you feel full. I was ready for my snack (an apple, mind you!) at 10 a.m.
Donuts are not evil. Nope. In moderation, they make for a fantastic treat. As I don’t get donuts very often with my dietary restrictions…but when I do, I always hope that it’s a delicious treat that is worth the indulgence. Let me tell you, Katz Gluten Free always makes it worth the indulgence. Especially with these. Triple threat of triple chocolate. If I revisit any of the new flavors, the Katz Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Donuts will be my choice for sure.
