The Charlotte Observer is reporting tonight that some Crispy Creme donuts got a little freaky with a bottle of Cheerwine, and here is the product of that union.
Crispy Creme has unveiled its Cheerwine donut. It's donut filled with a "Cheerwine creme", and coated with chocolate icing and sprinkles. Now, I'm not the biggest Cheerwine fan, but this sounds sorta good!
Not only does it sound sorta good -- but really, what is more Southern? I mean, this is more Southern than a fried green tomato at a NASCAR race!
UPDATE: Ok, I tried this thing, and really, it was WAAAY too sweet for my taste. The wierd thing is that they REALLY nailed the Cheerwine flavor in the creamy, whipped frosting filling. It tasted exactly like Cheerwine. The bad thing is that it, well, tasted exactly like Cheerwine. Let's face it, when was the last time you had Cheerwine and donuts? Never?? There's a reason for that.
