This is the first part in a series of posts I will entitle “Trying out new things”.
The experience: Dunkin’ Donuts
The location: N1 City, Cape Town
The situation: Two weeks ago on a Friday I stood in a relatively short line – 25 minutes – to buy a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts. While that would normally violate two of my rules (“I don’t waste time on bullshit” and “No processed food. At all.”), I had time to kill waiting for the SO to finish work, so why not?
The test: A dozen mixed donuts – star with chocolate inside, red iced, blue iced, lemon iced, chocolate, some other stuff
The analysis: A doughnut is a doughnut. I was never a particularly huge fan of these deep fried lumps, and I still am not. If I’m going to throw away calories on something, it will be sushi. I feel that the R6 chocolate doughnuts I bought at our local Kwikspar one Saturday before the SO left for late shift was better than these R14 ones.
I will give them this though – those doughnuts were consistent. Each one was perfectly formed, with no extra visible fat on the box, unlike your typical supermarket fare.
The verdict: While the doughnuts are good, it’s not our scene. In line with our personal lifestyle choices, we won’t be back.
