Donuts Fever Over?

Tonight’s desserts after dinner for my family:

Apple cinnamon, Double chocolate, Hazelnut milk chocolate, Lotus Mocha, Spicy Cheese, Coffee Roasted Almond, Cinnamon dark chocolate, Raspberry & dark chocolate, Cookies & cream, Dark Chococcino, Japanese jasmine tea & Chocolate Cherry Delight.

Before J Co Donuts & Coffee comes into the picture, before the expansion,  this particular donut stall in B1 of Raffles City had caught the most buzz of all.

Regardless whether it was 11am, 3pm, 7pm, there was a perpetual queue in that stretch of walkway. The amount of waiting of time was not simply 10-15 minutes. It was in calculation of hours. The scariest bit of all, on weekends, some were willing to spend half of their weekend queuing for these donuts.

Completely unable to comprehend what they were thinking; what their priorities were.

If it were about having a meal in a restaurant, I can understand waiting is required. For a piece of donut, it is more like grab-pay-go!

They have been around since Dec06 but I have only tried their donuts earlier this year. Cos the queue has disappeared. A competitor has setup a stall just around the corner. That’s why.

Yes, I must say their donuts taste much better than J.Co. Will I go to the extent spending hours queuing for it? No.

My purchase of a dozen donuts only took me a swift few minutes.  Wonderful.
