Six holiday donuts are coming to Everglazed Disney Springs this year. I recently took a #GooToYou trip to Everglazed. We have previously reported that this will arrive in his December. I ordered 5 out of 6 donuts that night. Holiday Wreath donuts weren’t in stock when we went, or they may have gotten all 6. You can buy all 6 of these donuts for $28. Of course they should be available at the time.
Gingerbread Man – $6.50
Of all the ones we’ve tried, this one counts as a signature donut on the Everglades scale. But the execution is missing something. Underneath the usual vanilla and chocolate frosting is a thin layer of gingerbread frosting. This will wreak havoc on your taste buds, as he was the only one of those donut bites that tasted like real gingerbread. When I took a bite of the gingerbread flavor, I found it delightful. The flavor combinations create a good standard donut, but nothing special.
The gingerbread man sugar pieces on top of the donuts were delicious. However, adding sugar to sugary donuts can be problematic for those who are susceptible to sugar overload.
The strawberry jelly filling balances out the strong sugar in this donut nicely. We would have believed you if you had told us this was another jelly-like flavor.
This donut tasted decent, but wasn’t worth the higher price tag.
Holiday Lights – $4.95
Of all the donuts we’ve tried, this one had the best presentation. Sugar candies, like the gingerbread man, make up the holiday lights of this donut. The frosting offered the familiar Everglazed flavor. Still, there was nothing outstanding about this donut. This makes a good donut, but nothing special.
Christmas Winter Mix – $4.95
This donut looked like a previously reviewed Everglazed regular donut. One twist includes holiday-themed sprinkles.The furikake are in the shape of bears, trees, and stars. The red and green sprinkle colors give plenty of punch for the holiday season.
Among holiday choices, this is a very safe choice. The contrast between the texture of furikake and the sweet frosting like sugar is attractive.
Traditional Christmas Sprinkles – $4.95
Like the last donut, the furikake becomes the donut. As documented, I enjoy furikake. Sprinkle candy on your donuts and you’ll instantly rank up. If you want a classic donut with furikake, this is it. If not, skip this.
Holly Leaf – $4.95
This donut shares similar characteristics with its predecessor. “Leaf” features sugary candies with a firmer texture than most guests prefer. The frosting brings the expected everglazed flavor. This donut looks pretty and tastes good, but it’s not as great as it once was.
Overall, the five donuts we tried were delicious. Still, as I often say, if you’re going to spend Everglades level money on donuts, I’d choose something else. If you go to Walt Disney World in December, getting six of these donuts might put a smile on your group’s face. As always, eat like you mean it!
