Day of the Dozens

On Monday, 11 Jan 2016, when I was reading the Sun, I came across the promo as shown in the photo below:

According to the article, on 12 Jan 2016, when one buys a box of 12 assorted doughnuts at MYR27.45 nett, one will get a box of 12 original glazed doughnuts on the house. To me, this is a very good deal if you can get 24 persons who love to eat doughnuts together to share and buy one box. Unfortunately I do not  know 24 such persons so while I was very tempted to get a box, I knew I couldn't eat all of them in a day. I think one doughnut costs about MYR2.70 nett each.

So far, I have only tried doughnuts from Krispy Kreme and J.CO Donuts. I can't remember whether or not I have eaten Big Apple Donuts or Dunkin' Donuts before so I couldn't tell between the 4 of them, which is the best.

  5. Not into those donuts, will not go and buy. I've tried Dunkin' Donuts simply because my colleagues went and got me a box for my birthday when we were having a meeting in KL...and a friend once bought me a box of Big Apple:

    We have Big Apple in Sibu - been around for years now so I guess it is doing ok.
    I went to Krispy Kreme at Mid Valley but I did not go for their donuts:

  9. I think they are more or less the same gua. Sweet sweet donuts. Actually the only reason I prefer Krispy Kreme is because can see their donuts making process hahaha!

    1. When Big Apple Donut opens its store in the Curve, the doughnuts making process can also be seen clearly through the glass windows. Now I am not sure whether or not it is still the case.

  10. when the first Krispy Kreme outlet in Berjaya Timesquare opened, I braved through the traffic and went to line up for a dozen, only to find out their donuts are way way way (and more way) too overly sweet for my liking.. now when I crave for some donut, I prefer Big Epal or simply the most basic sugar ring from any bakery..

    1. Big Apple ones are not as sweet as Krispy Kreme's? Wow, you sure were game to try the new doughnuts in town at that time.

  11. I think I've tried one of each brand but never had them again so I can't remember the taste. I don't eat much doughnuts coz they're all usually super sweet. The only one I've had more than once is JCo's...and I only like the classic (or original) ones. For me, a donut should be a donut...and don't fancy those with all sorts of toppings.

    1. Those toppings are for those who super love to eat doughnuts and eat them everyday so must have a different one each day.

  12. Good that you didn't give in to the temptation! I'd have seriously considered freezing the extras hehe. Still, 24 doughnuts would be rather a lot!

    Dunkin aren't as soft as J.CO, Big apple and KK. But I can't rank within the latter three coz loonnnggg gap between eating each of them.

    1. So must buy all of them at the same time to eat together to rank them, right?

    2. Yes yes. If want to do the job right. :)

    3. A difficult task then as not all of them are available in the same mall.

  13. I don't mind eating once in a while but HB loves it. He can eat them everyday..hahah

    1. HB should have gone for this deal then. So worth it since he can eat one every day.

  14. I enjoy donuts but somehow prefer the traditional plain one. Those with fancy toppings are too sweet for me, though I do eat once in a long while.

  15. I've eaten Dunkin Donuts, Big Apple and J.Co but I can't tell the difference. All I know is these donuts are super sweet. I'm surprised that you actually eat them as I know you don't fancy sweet stuffs.
