Every Entenmann's Donut Flavor, Ranked Worst To Best

Entenmann's is a part of growing up. For over 100 years, Entenmann's has been making incredible baked goods loved by people of all ages and creating traditions for families everywhere. The delicious choices are endless with options like donuts, little bites, cakes, cookies, snack pies, and more. It's hard to pick a favorite, but their donut varieties are pretty high on our list.

When it comes to Entenmann's, everyone's got a favorite, especially in the donut department. With classics like chocolate and glazed, seasonal favorites like pumpkin and apple cider, or unique options like coconut crunch, it can be difficult to choose which one to bite into first. To help you decide which sugary treat is best for you, we put in the work, hit our local grocery store, and stepped into the kitchen to carefully taste each one. Some we went back for seconds, others only got a nibble.

Here is every Entenmann's donut flavor, ranked worst to best.

12. Coconut Crunch Donuts

Entenmann's has an extensive list of donut varieties. Finding a way to rank them came as more of a challenge than we initially expected. With the Coconut Crunch Donuts on our plates, we mentally shifted to island time to get ready for a coconut tasting explosion. These moist golden cake donuts are topped with crunchy and sweet coconut giving a unique combination of taste and texture. Coconut Crunch comes in a pack of eight and can most optimally be paired with your morning coffee, post your afternoon lunch at the beach, or to curb your craving at any time of day.

When it comes to coconut you either love it or you hate it, so when it came to tasting and voting on the coconut crunch donuts we decided it belonged at the bottom compared to all the other incredible flavors. This flavor in particular was on the dryer side and did not meet our expectations.

11. Soft'ees Plain Donuts

We might get some hate for this because the plain old-fashion donuts are an Entenmann's classic, but there's nothing special about these Soft'ees Plain Donuts. Plain is in the name ... and that's exactly how to feel about these old-fashioned donuts. It gives us more of a cake vibe than donuts and the people that get that, get it. The Soft'ees Plain Donuts have a moist golden-cake center, but nothing on top to bring it to the top of our list. Don't get it twisted, they may be on the plain side, but they are still ever so delicious.

Like we said, plain old-fashion donuts are one of Entenmann's classics. If you're looking for this type of donut, make sure to grab the eight-donut pack. When it comes to enjoying the classic, grab a glass of chocolate milk to dip for extra flavor. These may be plain, but paired with the right beverage or topping of your choice, they can be elevated to the next dessert level.

10. Pumpkin Donuts

Move over pumpkin spice latte, it is pumpkin donut season. When it comes to fall, the more pumpkin the better, and finding the top pumpkin flavored goods becomes a seasonal challenge. Enjoy the fresh Pumpkin Donut flavor with milk coffee or warm apple cider to truly embrace the fall season. Take this pack of eight donuts on your yearly trip to the pumpkin patch or add to the pumpkin-filled Halloween party spread.

Pumpkin donuts are definitely a seasonal favorite, but can not triumph over the original year-round favorites. The reason Pumpkin Donuts found their #10 slot, is because we felt the pumpkin flavor did not truly come through in the taste test. It's rare to find pumpkin flavored goods that master the exact right amount of pumpkin to curb your taste for fall without overpowering the rest of the dessert. We liked this flavor, however felt these pumpkin donuts missed the mark.

9. Crumb Topped Donuts

Picture this: A delicious buttery crumb cake and a sweet glazed donut morphed into one mouth-watering hybrid. That incredible combo would be the Entenmann's Crumb Topped Donuts. When it comes to this powerful blend, you might think what could possibly be better? When we hit the kitchen, the Crumb Topped Donuts did not skyrocket to the top of our list for a couple reasons and those reasons may surprise you. 

Sometimes two good things are not meant to be combined ya know? In this case, the Crumb Topped Donuts did not climb up the roster for that reason. No hate on the delicious combo, but we agreed two good things were better in their original forms. If you need a quick breakfast or on-the-go snack don't necessarily discount these donuts completely, but we believe in this case you can't mess with perfection. Sometimes less is more. We're leaving the crumbs to the crumb cake. 

8. Devil's Food Crumb Donuts

The devil works hard, but Devil's Food Crumb Donuts work harder. Like their fellow plain Crumb Topped Donuts, the Devil Food Crumb Donuts landed on the bottom half of the list, but beat the plain version because who doesn't love Devil's Food cake? Don't let the ranking fool you, because with so many incredible flavors not everyone can land on top.

The Devil Crumb Donuts are a delicious combination of the devil's food cake you love with crumbs layered on top. This flavor is something you're going to want to grab on the way out the door or bring to the office to share in the common room. Once you've tried Devil's Food, you'll be reaching for a fork to stick the entire thing into your morning coffee or a glass of milk. This eight-pack is very popular and has a bit of a cult following in the Entenmann's donut lover community.

7. Rich Frosted Sprinkled Donuts

Chocolate lovers and chocolate donut lovers rejoice. This festive sweet treat was definitely headed towards the top of our favorite lists. The texture of the chocolate glaze made us feel some type of way. We took a bite (or three) into the delectable Rich Frosted Sprinkle Donuts found in the Chocolate Lover's Variety Pack and can confirm the chocolate sprinkle combo is one to make note of on your next shopping trip.

So you might be curious, why didn't this chocolate frosted sprinkle delight make it higher on the list? Here at Mashed, we believe in the simpler things in life and with that the addition of the sprinkles didn't quite compare to its original simpler counterpart. We'll chat about that later in the article. If you're looking to dive into the Rich Frosted Sprinkle Donuts, make sure you snag an eight-pack of the Chocolate Lover's Variety when you see it. This is a seasonal variety pack, and you best believe they will fly off the shelves.

6. Apple Cider Donuts

First comes pumpkin, then apple cider, another seasonal favorite. Not only is Entenmann's Apple Cider flavor a fall favorite, but also they are on their way to being an overall crowd favorite as well. As we have mentioned before, with so many flavors it can be hard to rank them all. Don't let a number five ranking fool you. When it's apple picking season, it's apple cider donut season too. These delectable, moist cake-style donuts are lightly glazed on the outside and pack a powerful fall flavored punch.

This donut variety will surely get you in the holiday spirit. Enjoy with a hot cup of apple cider or at the pumpkin patch to truly get in the fall spirit. This pack of eight is enough to share with the whole family. These donuts fly off the shelves quickly during the fall, so keep a look out if you want to get your hands on a box.

5. Country Powdered Donuts

A little bit of sugary powder makes a world of difference when it comes to donut toppings. Trust us on that. The Country Powdered Donuts are one of Entenmann's more underrated flavors. Imagine your favorite moist cake donut delicately sprinkled with powdered sugar that offers simplicity without sacrificing flavor. No frills, just the perfect amount of sweetness. It's one of those flavors that will definitely have you reaching for seconds.

It's found in the Variety Pack for a reason, alongside other scrumptious Entenmann's classics. Country Powdered Donuts are perfect for your family reunion, weekend picnic, or after a well-played soccer game. These donuts pair well with a glass of milk, tea, or even a juice box if you're into that kind of beverage. They landed themselves on the top half of our Entenmann's donut ranking for good reason. Next time you're at the store, make sure to pick up some Country Powdered Donuts. You will not be disappointed.

4. Frosted Donuts

If Willy Wonka's factory had a donut department, these Frosted Donuts would be front and center on the conveyor belt. As we mentioned with Rich Frosted Sprinkled Donuts, you should not sleep on the texture of the Entenmann's chocolate donuts. Maybe we're chocolate fiends or maybe these are truly that good. The Frosted Donuts are mouth-watering and towards the top of our list for good reason.

If we imagined what donut a cop would dunk in his coffee this would be it. Perfect for a dunk in your morning coffee, a dessert after dinner, or a snack with a glass of milk. If you're having guests over, a plate of frosted donuts would make a lovely dessert platter. They are creamy, rich, and flavorful and can be found in a two-pack. This pack is harder to find than some of the others, so if you see them, buy them!

3. Rich Frosted Donuts

Take a trip to chocolate heaven. We knew we loved the Rich Frosted Sprinkle Donuts, but there's nothing better than the original. Let's chat about the texture. These donuts and their chocolate coating were crafted by dessert angels and are a bit, well, richer in chocolatey taste than the Frosted Donuts. The Rich Frosted Donuts are a moist yellow cake donut wrapped in a rich and silky chocolate coating. Did we eat an entire container of these donuts for the sake of "research"? Absolutely. And we have no shame in the chocolate donut-eating game.

Rich Frosted Donuts are the perfect morning sweet with coffee, the most delicious reward after a workout, or a way to win over your dinner guests after a savory meal. Get the gallon of milk ready, because you will not be able to stop at just one. The best part is if you are looking for this flavor, you can not only find them in the variety box, but they come in their own box of eight as well.

2. Glazed Donuts

Move over Krispy Kreme, these Entenmann's Glazed Donuts are not only a classic, but also one of our donut flavor favorites. When the glazed donuts are out, it's hard to stop at only one. Trust us, to ensure our list was the best it could be there were quite a few glazed donuts tested ... to make sure everything was just right. When you bite into a Glazed Donut expect to find moist yellow cake covered with a dreamy sweet glaze. Unlike some of the other flavor toppings, this one is fully covered with this incredible glaze. It's the perfect amount of sweetness to satisfy that after-meal or late-night sweet tooth.

One of the best parts about the Glazed Donuts is you can find them in the Variety Pack. Take a bite of Glazed, switch over to chocolate in the same pack. Wash it down with a glass of milk and think about going back for round two.

1. Glazed Buttermilk Donuts

Drum roll please .. .we saved the best for last. Regular glazed donuts are great, but the Glazed Buttermilk Donuts are next-level which helped them grab the coveted number one spot on our Entenmann's best flavors list. This donut is incredibly rich in flavor, without being overpowering. Imagine diving your teeth into this delightful buttermilk donut covered in a sweet creamy glaze. We did just that. There's something so simple, yet so incredibly satisfying about Entenmann's Glazed Buttermilk Donuts.

This flavor did not stand a chance of having leftovers in our taste test and it's no secret why. The scrumptious Glazed Buttermilk Donuts are the perfect snack for any time, any day. This sweet treat found its way to our #1 slot for a lot of reasons, but most notably it can truly be paired with just about anything. No variety box needed for these bad boys, they deserve their own box of eight.

Entenmann's really knows what they're doing in the donut department. From seasonal flavors, to chocolate and glazed, their quality is not something to be ignored. Nothing satisfies a sweet tooth quite like an Entenmann's donuts. Now you know which ones are the worst and best, go try them all for yourself. Everyone's got a favorite.
