Touching on doughnuts, it seems to be a new food trend among youngster in our country. Doughnuts outlets in the country namely KL grows like mushroom. It is usually a must to visit in shopping complex, just to look around for new flavours if any and to see the freshly bake doughnuts. Though the flavoured doughnuts price ranges from 2.20 to 2.80 per piece, people are still willingly wait for long queue to buy one to satisfy their taste bud.
And today, the topic will be on Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Its first outlet was in Berjaya Times Square. Today, it opens its door to customers at Mid Valley and Sunway Pyramid as well. I saw the store at Mid Valley and since everybody was saying that its doughnuts is the King of All Doughnuts, why don't give a try. Let's see what I had bought, erm to be precise my sister. Haha.
Chocolate Iced Glazed
Chocolate Iced Custard Filled
Almon all over
New York Cheesecake
Glazed Vanilla Cake
Green Tea Twist
A dozen of pre-assorted variety costs RM 23.90. For the Raya promotion, there is a free half dozen pre-assorted varieties with the purchase of any one dozen assorted doughnuts. To my surprise is hald dozen costs Rm 16.80 (around that price). It's very logical to buy 1 dozen + 1/2 dozen free at RM 23.80 than to buy only half dozen at RM 16.80. The menu board at the Mid Valley outlet does not dispaly the price for half dozen and not even a single piece. They expect everyone will buy one dozen instead. The staff were not friendly at all. With the lack of information on the prices, it is common for customers to re-confirm the prices. They seem very unfriendly to me when I inquired about the price. In addition, there was Raya promotion which gives 18 doughnuts at RM 23.80. Clarification is of course needed otherwise later will be scammed. I must say that the doughnuts is not as nice as being said or promoted around the blogs. You guys remember during the launching of its first outlet at Times Square where people were crazily queuing up early in the morning to haunt for the doughnuts. Most of the blogs even labeled it as King of all Doughnuts. I must strongly object the nickname given as the taste was so so only. J Co Donuts followed by Big Apple Donuts are better than Krispy Kreme. I think this will be the first and the last time I will buy Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I do not want to spent money on over rated and over priced common doughnuts. What say you?
