Krispy Gonuts


I was at The Fort strip last Sunday with my relatives where we had lunch. They came all the way from Pangasinan that day because they were going to fetch my cousin at the airport later that day

Since they were in the Manila, they wanted to take home some food which is' nt readily available in the province. So we went to Gonuts Donuts where we bought around a dozen donuts. Luckily their ongoing promo offered 2 free cups of brewed coffee for every 6 donuts. So we all were able to have free coffee.

A while after, my other cousin from Pangasinan, texted her mom asking her to buy some donuts from the newly opened "Krispy Kreme" branch also located within The Fort. We had passed the sign earlier leading to the one and only new branch of Krispy Kreme in the Philippines.

I've heard about this donut from TV, celebrities and friends and I was also curious as what these donuts tasted like. So even if we just bought a dozen donuts, we jumped in the car and tried to look for this new donut store.

After 10 minutes of driving around, we finally found it. And to our surprise, there was a long line of about 40 people. Each person we saw paying bought at least 1 dozen. I guess they wanted to maximize their time for lining up. We couldn't even get inside just to look (and smell) the donuts cause there was a strict line enforced. I was able to check out their price list and it's like $5.00 for a dozen. That's kinda expensive compared to the other donut stores here but I guess it's a premium price for having Krispy Kreme in the Philippines.

And so I got home eating a donut but thinking about another donut. Since I'll be at the Fort area again tonight, I think I'll try my luck and see if there's a shorter line now.

Good thing my boss was generous enough to share his Krispy stash with us. Parang GoNuts din naman ang lasa.

$5 is actually not bad. Here in New York it costs around $7/dz.

So it's a battle bet. Krispy GoNuts or GoNuts Kreme. :p
