I love sweets in general, but of course, I do have my favorites. One of them would have to be donuts. Though I will be talking about everyone's favorite pasalubong, (something you bring home to family and friends after a trip) Krispy Kreme, I'm not picky about donuts at all. I also enjoy the ones that can be bought in small-scale bakeries. If you ask me, I'd rather eat plain, sugar-coated donuts than the ones stuffed with filling or icing. I know that posting photos of Krispy Kreme might be getting a little too mainstream for Filipinos from the provinces, but I think I need to at least dedicate one post for one of the things I look forward to every time I go to the big city or in this case, when a family or friend comes home from a trip.
I had my first taste of Krispy Kreme four years ago. Admittedly, I made it a point to look for a branch during my short trip to Manila that summer because of all of the hype about the brand. I'd see tweets and Facebook posts about this brand. Given the fact that my curiosity is easily piqued whenever I hear about good food and that I'm fond of donuts, I just couldn't resist.
My favorite variety would have to be the original-glazed ones. Unlike the others, this flavor doesn't give me that I-don't-think-I-can-have-another-bite feeling. Instead, it makes me crave for more. It's easy on the taste buds. I don't even think it would make you feel sick of it after how many mouthfuls. I love the way my teeth just sinks into the donut. That doesn't happen with other brands of donuts. To describe the more economical brands, I'd say it's almost like biting into air. Anyway, another thing that I can't get enough of is how well-glazed the exterior is. It gives you that satisfying melt-in-your-mouth experience. This is the reason why I love Krispy Kreme.
I have to thank my kind mother for thinking of me while they were away. She gave me what I wanted, a dozen donuts all to myself. I was in cloud nine the moment I saw the box that was only meant for me. I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank her for the other stuff that she brought home for me.
