Three days ago I was expecting a box of Krispy Kreme donuts as the customary “pasalubong” but my wife decided to buy from the new donuts store called J.Co Donuts. It is the latest donut franchise company that hits the Philippines right at the sweet center of Filipino tongue. Indeed, the latest donut store is becoming the talk of the town. Oftentimes, you will see a long line of customers waiting for their turn to buy the latest “donut craze”. Krispy Kreme definitely has a new competition.
The J.CO donuts traveled a long way from Megamall to Baguio City. When I saw the two big donut boxes, I knew I had to give a review of the donuts as a first time customer.
First of all, the box has a dominant yellow color with a simple logo on it which makes the presentation somewhat elegant.
The Donuts are a little bit expensive. One donut is prized at P40 each. However, you can see that each donut was carefully designed from top to bottom. Also, it is much cheaper to purchase by the box because it will greatly lessen the cost.
As for the donuts, each has its own unique taste depending on the donut that you choose to eat. All of the donuts I tasted were good but I cannot give a specific term of taste for each donut because the cool weather of Baguio City has “frozen cold” the sweet toppings.
I think the J.CO donuts are meant to be eaten in warm areas or to be served warm because the sweet toppings became a little bit hard when we tasted it. So the alternative we did was to heat the donuts in a pan and when served warm, it was perfect!
Maybe this is one difference between Krispy Kreme and J.CO Donuts. The former comes up to Baguio City in its original form while latter in it’s hardened sweet toppings. But still, both are good tasting donuts.
Here are other J.C Donuts photos I’ve taken:
