I was looking for a quick snack for me and the Hubs and I saw this and looked good enough to take a chance on. I was right! i gave it 4 stars because I did not like the nutmeg, thought it was too much. Other than that it was great. Next time I plan to omit the nutmeg and ginger and sprinkle the sugar over the donuts rather than shake them in the bag as it was too sugary. This one is a keeper!
