Round and Yummy All Around

I still don’t get why this donut place is called Big Apple. Not that I noticed any big ones around also. And I don’t think there were any apple-flavored donuts too.. but I finally managed to locate this place in The Curve when I was there 2 weekends ago. You’ve gotta try them, enthused Hijack Queen and Rinnah…. My plan was to try out these donuts when I was in The Curve in August but silly me, I forgot the name of the place and since I could not contact those 2 who recommended them to me, I had to tell my craving to wait. Until 2 weeks ago.

I gave Rinnah a call right before I hopped over to Big Apple. And she told me which flavors were good. So I got (bottom picture, clockwise from top left): Cocoring (Belgian chocolate – I chose this because the thought of Belgian chocolate melting in my mouth was just dreamy), Glacier (glazed sugar), Banana Rama (middle portion had a dollop of really sweet banana-flavored cream), California Almond (Almond flakes), Green Teaser (recommended by Rinnah; this one had green tea-flavored cream), Cool Blue (with blueberry jam).

I only had them when I got back to Penang, zapped them in the microwave first of course. Although most of the donuts were a tad sweet, I would have to give the thumbs up to the California Almond, Cocoring and the Banana Rama. I especially like the California Almond because it tasted somewhat savory, which was kinda different for a donut, I’ll have to admit. The Green Teaser did not taste as “green tea” as I expected.

But that being said, the taste of the donuts could have been marred by the fact that I did not eat them fresh. Would I go back again? I would say yes, but I would not go out of my way to get them…although I could very well do with one of those California Almond donuts now. 🙂
