Donuts: my favorite treat on days I want to eat some sugary stuff. My favorite donuts? They are from Dunkin Donuts. Why? Find out below:
MY DUNKIN DONUT FAVS
Savory and sweet: combined on a glazed donut from Dunkin Donuts. Yes, this is a creation I made myself. Nutella with bacon on a bacon. This fell down straight from heaven. You don’t believe me? Please try it yourself.
Each Saturday I eat donuts. Or at least for the last couple of months. I recently discovered ‘the donut’. I know: I missed out on something for a few years. But you know; in Amsterdam the ‘donut hype’ is still not going super strong. If you watch the Donut chains in America.. Dang, they’re making some crazy-ass, delicious donuts. Take a look at the Instagram of Five Donuts.
In Amsterdam there are a lot stores of Dunkin Donuts. And yes: every Saturday I need to make the hard choice: ‘Which three donuts shall I choose today?’. I always eat three – I think I can eat a lot more – but I’m sharing with my boyfriend. He likes donuts too, unfortunately. Just kidding. It’s always nice to eat some delicious donuts together.
I always prefer the ‘chocolate-meets-peanut-kinda’ donuts. I’m not really into the fruity stuff. I never choose a strawberry or blueberry donut by myself. I always go for the more filling donuts. Oh yes, and when I’m talking about filling; here’s some real filling going on. The donut above is the Dutch one: stroopwafel. The filling is delicious and tastes a lot like caramel.
But the one I really really really love is the Reese’s peanut butter donut. I’m a big fan of Reese’s. That’s the best chocolate in the world for me. And if you combine Reese’s with donuts and a peanut butter cream filling.. Yes, I’m buying this. And not one, but a few.
And a closer look on this beauty. Let’s be honest: this is pure goodness, right? This is heaven on a donut. A chocolate-peanut butter party in my mouth. And a side note: the donuts are not expensive at all. If you buy six; you pay 10 euro’s. So that’s a good deal in my eyes.
I’m also pretty crazy about the Nutella filled donuts. I never buy donuts that are not filled. I need some filling. At Dunkin Donuts you have two options if you love Nutella: the Nutella crunch donut or the Nutella swirl donut. Most of the time I’m going for the Nutella swirl donut.
Dunkin Donuts is also very generous when it comes to filling the donuts. Look at the filling of the Nutella swirl donut. Damn.. There’s a few big spoons of Nutella in here. That’s how I like it. When filling a donut; do it like Dunkin Donuts.
Besides the typical ‘donut’ Dunkin Donuts also sells ‘cronuts’. And that’s in my eyes the most delicious one. It’s crunchy, it’s filled; it’s a croissant-donut. That’s sounds already super delicious, right? When you take a look at the cronut you already see the flakes on the side. When you take a bite of the cronut you feel the cronut crackle. Hmm.
And sometimes I just like to build my own donut. Just like last Saturday. What I put on the donut? To begin with I used the Nutella swirl donut as the base and then added salted caramel peanut butter from the Pindakaaswinkel. M&M’s also has a new flavor on the market: crunchy caramel M&M’s. So I used that for the top. I finished the donut with a spoon of marshmallow spread and added the newest flavor of Tony’s Chocolonely: milk shortbread caramel.
Hope you have some new inspiration for when having a ‘treat-day.
