Orlando area theme park resorts offer many landmines for vacationers trying to stick to their healthy diet. Of course, greasy burgers, fries, chicken tenders, and pizza dominate the culinary landscape. If you ordered a reasonably healthy meal, then the temptation of dessert rises. You can feel like you are suffering in the wilderness for 40 days of temptation pondering your choices. If you have followed the culinary adventure of one of my recent trips to Orlando area, you are aware that the temptation to enjoy far too much sugar was embraced by me. In fairness, my sugar intake counts as premeditated. I pre-planned to visit Everglazed in Disney Springs two days in a row.
On this occasion, I ordered the Vanilla Iced Doughnut with Sprinkles from Everglazed. Of course, I fall for most desserts with sprinkles. This doughnut can be found listed in the classic section on the Everglazed menu. These doughnuts cost $4.75 each. As always, please consider the much larger size of these doughnuts even compared to Voodoo Doughnut over at Universal Orlando when considering value based on price point.
The appearance of this doughnut adds to experience since people eat with their eyes first. The design with frosting and sprinkles works well. As you can see in photos, the simple but well-done design shows skill.
The doughnut portion itself tasted reasonably solid. However, the doughnut portion simply serves as a medium for the icing and sprinkles with this one. The sprinkles tasted good but not almost $5 good. Likewise, the vanilla icing rates as good but nothing spectacular. The icing tasted far sweeter than I expected. Perhaps on a related note, the icing was also very sticky. Because of that, I recommend using a fork and knife with his doughnut.
Overall, Everglazed makes a solid vanilla iced doughnut with sprinkles. The key question revolves around whether this doughnut deserves to cost $4.75. Like the chocolate frosted one, the quality was fine. However, for a little more money you can experience a truly decadent doughnut at Everglazed. My suggestion continues to be to get the more highly themed extravagant looking doughnuts here not the classic ones.
As always, eat like you mean it!
