Tim Horton’s, L&Y Plaza

Tim Horton’s is an institution in Canada. This iconic donut brand is tightly enmeshed in the Canadian identity.

And with its entry into the Philippine market in 2017, it brought a little bit of the Great White North to our shores.

Would you believe I’ve only gotten around to sampling its offerings today, well over two years after Tim Horton’s opened its first branch in the country?

Blame it on a lack of opportunity, I guess. Most of the TH branches that opened are out of the way for me. That is, until I saw one in L&Y Plaza along Ortigas Avenue – a mere 2 kilometers away from my home.

I took advantage of Tim Horton’s gift certificates I received during the epic #WeLoveToEatPH Christmas Party to check out its famed donuts.

So what did I order?

Maple Dip Donut (Php55 each). TH’s soft donut dipped in rich maple fondant. Donut + Maple… how can you get any more Canadian than that?

Strawberry Field Timbit (Php12 each). Soft sugar-coated donut holes filled with strawberry filling.

Peach GardenTeajito (Php105). TH’s refreshing non-coffee drink made from black tea, peach-flavored syrup and a shot of Mentha Cubano.

Krispy Kreme rounds up the treats for its birthday month

Did you know that Krispy Kreme is celebrating its 82nd birthday this July?

It opened its first branch in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on July 13, 1937 after founder Vernon Rudolph acquired a secret yeast-raised doughnut recipe from a New Orleans chef and brought about Krispy Kreme’s signature Original Glazed doughnuts.

This month, however, as a special treat to its customers, Krispy Kreme recently launched its limited edition Mini Birthday Cake Doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme Birthday

Made of three yummy and festive new flavors – bubblegum, strawberry and white chocolate – all drizzled with melted dark chocolate, studded with rainbow sprinkles and dusted with edible gold dust. It even comes with its own limited-edition happy box so the celebrant can unbox this special treat and get a happy surprise.

New Cheesy Doughnut at Krispy Kreme, Rockwell Business Center

There’s something about the combo of sweet and salty: these flavors tend to provide a god counterbalance to each other, giving the taste buds an interesting sense of contrasts.  A great salty element to add to most sweets is cheese as can be seen in one of Krispy Kreme’s newest offerings: the Cheese Ring Filled Doughnut.

Imagine Krispy Kreme’s signature Original Glazed Doughnut but with a melted cheese filling that oozes out whenever you bit into it.  The sweetness of the fluffy doughnut and the richness of the gooey melted Cheddar cheese, especially with the Hot Chocolate I ordered with it. just gave me a warm happy buzz.

I bought a Half-Dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts to bring home to Hubby and the kiddies, but this cheesy sweet treat is just for me (#SorryNotSorry).

This delightful doughnut break took place at the Krispy Kreme branch located at the Ground Floor, Tower 1, Rockwell Business Centre, Ugong, Pasig City.  As it is just a few steps away from the Medical City, I was able to drop by and enjoy some quiet time after running some errands.  The store is open to serve the office workers in the Rockwell Business Center as well as the visitors of Medical City 24 hours from Mondays to Fridays, and 7am to 12mn on Saturdays.  The seating area inside is quite limited but people can opt to sit outside and enjoy the park-like view.
