Hey guys, we are back with another (Tasty Time?) snack review! Today we have another Franz Bakery item. This time with their Limited Edition Raspberry Filled SnowmanO’s. We are both big fans of donuts of all different sorts. I knew when I saw them that they would be a delicious festive way to start our day! Walking into the kitchen and seeing the cute happy snowman on the box is sure to brighten any morning.
What Are Franz Raspberry Filled SnowmanO’s?
Franz Raspberry Filled SnowmanO’s I believe are a winter themed version of the Franz original raspberry filled donuts. Adorned with a festive name and familiar character, these powdered white donuts with a mouthwatering fruity raspberry filled center are a present you can unwrap early!
How Are They?
You let your eyes do the buying on these for sure! Once you get drawn in by the festive packaging and you get a glimpse of just how scrumptious these snow dusted donuts are, your mouth is sure to start watering!
I found myself putting them in my cart before I even realized what I was doing.
Out of everything in our most recent snack haul, these were the one thing I couldn’t wait to get home to take a bite of.
These are not just your average powdered donut, they are a crumbly have a delicious raspberry jelly filled middle. The fruity center weakens the sides of the donut, meaning that it lends itself to crumbling easily. That being said, the powdered sugar part does seem to not be as messy as other donuts. It might stick to your fingers a tad but it wont look like your fingers just took a walk in the snow – which I would suppose would be fitting considering how festive the packaging is!
Overall we thought that they were really good. So good we are already on our second box as we write this! We definitely think if you like raspberry donuts at all you should pick up a box of these Franz Raspberry Filled SnowmanO’s donuts.
Note: I mistakenly forgot to grab a picture of the packaging, and our box is gone! But, you can see a picture of them on Franz’ website here.

For a final analysis, I’ll share each one of our thoughts that we wrote down while trying Franz Raspberry Filled SnowmanO’s!
These donuts are so delicious! One of my all time favorite donuts is a powdered one and this is honestly one of the best store bought ones I have had besides Hostess. The raspberry filling is not overly sweet or too bitter; it’s the perfect match for the usual dryness of a powdered donut. I would like to try other fruit flavors if they had them, but I don’t know if any will be as perfect as raspberry (which is not one of my usual favorites!)
Definitely not a donut I would recommend dunking unless you like the extra texture to your drinks as the donut crumbles easily because of the jelly filling.
I think these donuts are very good. They have a very sweet raspberry center unlike most other raspberry-filled snacks that are more tart in taste. I do think it makes for a good combination with the powdered donut, making it feel less dry, and easier to eat for longer periods of time.
It is a huge potential for messes as it falls apart super easily, but for being a non-Hostess brand donut this is something I could see myself wanting to eat more than just around the holidays. Which is good, because it doesn’t appear too different from Franz other raspberry donuts (which I haven’t tried yet.) It does appear Franz rebrands these donuts based on the holiday going on, as I see they have several Halloween variations as well.
Overall, we both thought they were really tasty and something we would definitely buy again. We are for sure going to have to pick up some of the original Franz Raspberry Filled donuts and see if they match the flavor of their winter themed counterpart! After all, only having these once a year would be a shame.
