Taste test: These donuts were generally about half the diameter of typical full-size donuts, so we've seen smaller donuts, but they still fit well into the "mini" category. They had a powdered sugar coating over the entire exterior, so my evaluations of the red would have to wait until I bit in. I did just that to find that the interiors were indeed red, similar to the red in the donuts pictured on the package, but a bit less bright. This was a contrast to the recently reviewed Red Velvet Oreos, which were much more brown than red.
I thought the taste was OK, but nothing great. The red cake just wasn't as tasty for me as a standard donut. The powdered sugar helped a bit, but all in all, I'd rather have a standard mini donut than one of these Red Velvet ones.
Smell test: Fairly mild, but sweet.
