Cronuts in Dunkin Donuts

After office today, I was so excited to go to BGC to get my first bite of cronuts in Krispy Kreme.  To my dismay, i found no cronuts in there... (double sad face).  The crew said, they are only producing 150 pieces of cronuts per day starting 6AM but because they are so famous they will not last until 10AM.

I drove away from BGC with a lonely heart thinking maybe cronuts are not meant for me, so I was just singing Carly Rae Jepsen's song "Tonight I'm getting over you".  It feels like I couldn't get over of my cravings for cronuts so my heart feels like shattering.  I'm not really sure how to end this loneliness.... Ooppss, di po ako naglilihi, dumadrama lang for cronuts.

Okay, cut the drama... On my way home, I passed by a Dunkin' Donuts store and decided to buy bavarian donuts.  To my surprise, they have their own versions of cronuts, 4 flavors, P75 each and they are all mouthwatering.  I didn't expect I could taste a cronut tonight.  All along, I was pushing my luck in Krispy Kreme not knowing there's Dunkin' Donuts that is waiting for me... Parang truth to life lang ang peg. :) 

The verdict? It is a crusty soft croissant with custard fillings and toppings like a donut. The sweetness level of the filling and the chocolate is balanced by the bread, a perfect combination.  The taste is comparable to beard papa, very similar if my taste buds served me right.  One cronut is heavy enough to fill your tummy, sulit sa P75.  I'll say I gotta raise 2 thumbs up for this.

So there, those were my dramatic journey for cronuts.  Have a happy weekend everyone!

    1. I hink kaya mo i bake to mommy joy. Imagine a croissant pinalamanan lang ng custard tapos toppings of your choice. Pero sige, paguwi mo mommy joy ako na magpapatikim sayo. Hehehe!
