Curious to see what will set Dixie Cream apart from the other donut havens in Riyadh, we paid a visit to Dixie Cream. According to their website, Dixie Cream has been around for over 80 years – that’s a long time churning out donuts. On arrival we were a little surprised to find most of their trays empty, perhaps this was a good thing, and a sign of high demand. We bought a box of 8 assorted donuts. Unlike the other donut shops, Dixie Cream stack their donuts side-by-side and standing, a nice touch if you dont mind toppings getting transferred to other donuts too.
As for the taste test… unfortunately, there was little here that made Dixie Cream donuts differ from others in town. Though fluffy and sweet, there wasn’t anything sensational here to set them apart. The strawberry icing was a little too sweet for my liking, and the cinnamon with apple filling donut didn’t quite hit the mark. In contrast their glazed donut was pretty good.
There also does not seem to be a separate family entrance at this outlet, which we hope will be remedied soon. If you’re passing by Tahlia, give them a try, and let us know what you thought below by leaving us your review!Dixie Cream,
