Short Short Note: This is a short post away from the Japan posting.
So everyone was raving about it. (Again i am trying new fonts- blogger please give me nicer choice of fonts ) And i decided to try it. I had colleagues who were willing to queue and hour for these round thingy. One day, while at Sunway Pyramid - i saw - there was no queue!! So i mosey over to the JCO donut shop to pick 4 donuts for me to try. 4 donuts for 1 person? No lah i got my brother into the trying as well. Only he and i are donut crazy.
I was looking for the normal sugar dusted kind but they had everything except that. So i picked 2 sugar glazed and 1 tiramisu and 1 blueberry. ( Almost spelled it as Burberry -hint).
I took the tiramisu one and i was sorely disappointed. Firstly, it was damn freaking sweet. To a point my hair stood up. Literally. Ok, i am exaggerating. But it was sweet and i hated the cream filling inside. Even though i love sweet stuff this was WAY too much for me. Pastry wise it is not fluffy. I suspect this is not the yeast based doughnut but rather what my mom says baking powder version. (Wah - she expert leh ). And, the filling. Let's say i felt so full that day i could not stomach any more creamy stuff.
Have you all eaten the San Francisco Coffee or Starbucks version? Now that is doughnut. Fluffy texture is what i like.
Lil Bro said the Blueberry version is not so bad because of the tangy nature of the fruit mixed with the sugar. He finished the two Sugar Glazed later. I was not too impressed to even try the Sugar Glazed.
Anyway, this is just my opinion on the doughnut. I know a lot of people like this place and probably i will get bricks thrown my direction for this - LOL. Well, the less i eat this, i won't put the fat in me.
No need for addresses or location of this place, JCO can now be found in most major shopping centers. I hope when Krispy Kreme comes - it's not like this. :P Maybe i will get to know in July when i head over to Sydney for Cousin's wedding.
