When you're craving a sugary snack, sometimes only a doughnut will do and most of us can't resist a Krispy Kreme.

They may all be high in sugar and fat, but some Krispy Kreme varieties differ hugely when you're counting calories. For example, a glazed original doughnut will cost you just over 200 calories and 13g of fat, while a chocolate-iced and cream-filled version will set you back a whopping 339 calories and 15g of fat. At almost one fifth of an average woman's recommended daily calorie intake, you'd have to really want that one.

So, what should you opt for if a glazed original sounds, well, a bit boring? Try a maple-iced or a chocolate-iced doughnut with sprinkles. Both come in at around a far less guilt-inducing 250 calories.

But, if only a good old jam-filled doughnut will do and you're powerless to resist, go for strawberry over raspberry - you'll save yourself 40 calories and 1g of fat - and let's face it, every little helps.

But take heart Krispy Kreme fans, compared to other doughnut brands, Krispy Kremes are actually relatively low in calories. Take an iced-ring doughnut from Greggs Bakers - at more than 350 calories and 18g fat, you may decide not to take one after all.

If you're searching for a healthier choice, try a traditional jam doughnut from good old Marks and Spencer. With just 4g fat and 200 calories, you won't feel so bad for indulging.
