Holey Donuts Giveaway!

Holey Donuts was so kind to send me some samples embarrassingly long ago, and they've been chillin' in my freezer ever since. I finally had a chance to test 'em out this weekend, though, which means it's GIVEAWAY TIME!

Holey Donuts are significantly lower in fat and calories than commercial donuts, such as Dunkin or Krispy Kreme, so for those of you out there who can't get over the donut addiction, these might just be your savior. Check out the comparison chart:

I was sent four boxes, including the vanilla frosted...

...raspberry fudge, banana cream and blueberry crumb...

...as well as boxes of their huuuuuge cinnamon buns and lemon donut holes.

I enlisted the boyf to be my official co-taste-tester, since he is a connoisseur of the mighty Dunkin. We had cinnamon buns for breakfast Saturday morning.

...and they were pretty darn good. Move over, Cinnabon.

I was rather partial to the little lemon donut holes. Please excuse scary just-woke-up face.

Now's your chance to win a sampler of your own. To enter:
  1. Leave a comment below telling me why you would love to try a low-fat donut.
  2. For an extra entry, link back to this contest from your own blog.
  3. If you don't have a blog, earn an extra entry by becoming a fan of Holey Donuts on Facebook and/or sign up with your email address at www.HoleyDonuts.net, then email me at diana(at)soapandchocolate(dot)com to let me know you did so.
I'll announce the winner Thursday, July 23!

Do-nut miss it! :)

Note: If you want to purchase donuts from the Holey Donuts website, be sure to enter promo code AWNY at check-out - you'll receive 30 Low Fat Cinnamon Glazed Donut Holes FREE!

THE ACTORS DIET said...

yes please! i would love to eat these donuts but don't really have the $$$ to order them so i'd like to give em a try!

Emma said...

I would LOVE to try these - I've been pining after them forever. I am now at a healthy place in my life, and I want to continue it! Holey donuts would allow me to enjoy a treat without worrying about low fat, trans fat and cholesterol free, but most importantly delicious donut! And, what better way to convince my friends that eating healthy doesn't mean all veggies and fruits!

My best friends and I are all Weight Watchers members. So we all keep a close eye on nutritional information. When I saw this post, I realized I can't actually remember the last time I had a donut! I'd love to try out a low-fat option and share with my weight-watching friends.

brandi said...

ah, i've heard so many good things about these donuts! I would love to win them and finally try them. We have an awesome donut place here, but they are not low fat :)

Gena (Choosing Raw) said...

I am going to forgo the donut, but mention that those donut porn photos are awesome.

Lora said...

Lele said...

Oh my gaaaaaaaahd I want them because I am honestly skeptical that you can create the deep fried heavenliness of donuts in a low-fat way.
But I want so badly to believe! Help me believe!

Katherine said...

I would like to try these donuts because I love pastries (especially anything with icing!) but am also health-conscious. They look amazing!

Stephanie Reed said...

It's fate, really. This afternoon I missed a chance to eat--I mean, pick up a dozen genuine Amish glazed doughnuts. When I ate my first and only one two years ago, I said, "I have been waiting for this all my life." The only thing that kept me from eating a whole dozen calorie-laden Amish doughnuts today was distance. So a little willpower in the round shape of delicious Holey Donuts--I want to go to there.

Miz said...

because my coffee is feeling so so very lonely.

I haven't eaten a donut in SO long, because I've been scared of the nutritional facts...I would LOVE to take a trip back to my childhood and indulge in a HEALTHY donut. :)

I would love to win some low-fat donuts because they would be a delicious and waistline friendly way to satisfy my massive sweet tooth! :D I would also love to share these treats with my daddio who I inherited my sweet tooth from....and who needs to lose some weight!

meghanN said...

I have been drooling over these donuts foreva! My belly doesn't do well with fried foods so I would love to try some of these delish sounding donuts that won't upset me stomach!

andriesdancer said...

OMG! I have been wanting to try these since I fist found out about them! I just wished they had a ampler pack where you could pick any flavor you wanted to try. I would pick one of each! HA! I would love to win because I haven't had a donut in years and it would be such a treat to indulge in something that is delicious and healthy! Like you, I am partial to lemon! So I think those would be fabulous! I have been looking through your blog and Penny's Dessert look so good as well, I can't imagine how tasty these are going to be. Plus I'm a starving artist and can't afford to buy a whole big box! Check out my ballet companies website www.festivalballet.com If I win, I'll tell all the dancers and we will give holey donuts lots of business. Us dancers are very weak for sweets!

2. I submitted my email address to Holey Donuts on their website.

heyitstay said...

I've been wanting to try these FOREVERRRRR. I tried a FF donut in England a couple summers ago and it was blah. I want my faith restored in healthy donuts!

Marcia said...

I love donuts but am a pretty healthy eater, so the healthy versions would be awesome to taste!

runnerskitchen said...

Mmm, I have a soft spot for donuts. I can smell the Dunkin' Donuts bakery when I return home to my apt at night. Now that's temptation!

Bethiej said...

I would love to try these...not just for myself...but for my little one who LOVES her munchkins!

Jen Papaya said...

is it too late to leave a comment?? If not..

I would love to try these donuts, because I recently broke my leg and can't work out anymore for the next 3 months!! (yep, i'm using the sympathy card). I need healthy treats to get me through the day : )

I'm going to try to link back, but for some reason it never seems to work..so we'll see...

April said...

I just started WW and would LOVE to try these amazing looking/sounding donuts for myself. I am a carb addict and anything like these donuts that can let me have my sweets still and keep me within my points goal would be wonderful!
