15. Mother's Heart
The Mother’s Heart is a seasonal offering, featuring strawberry frosting and a “kreme” filling with heart-shaped sprinkles on top. Our judges found it to be too busy and far too sugary. They were, however, called “cute”.

14. Bavarian Kreme
Despite the fact that this powdered sugar-dusted donut is filled with cream, our tasters found it dry and crusty due to the donut’s cakey composition and a rather sparse distribution of the cream. The two textures worked well together, but that didn't lift this donut up to the heights of some of the others.

13. Chocolate Frosted with Sprinkles
With a straightforward presentation and concept, the chocolate frosted was a little too simple. The texture was a bit on the crusty side, and our tasters thought it could’ve used a little more of a candy crunch from the sprinkles to balance out the overall profile. Also, there wasn’t enough chocolate, which is weird for a chocolate donut.
