  1. They aren’t too bad either. Just got me one. They would be better as chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I was also disappointed because they still didn’t have chocolate glaze going on the donuts. They were right back to their normal process when I arrived at the N. Broadway location in Knoxville, TN.
