Beard Papa + Krispy Kreme

Here's a long overdue post about Beard Papa, a Japanese snack store selling cream puffs. I had it once before, and I couldn't forget the fragrant vanilla cream. Some few weeks ago, I bought an original cream puff, a chocolate one and one of their chocolate cakes.

Somehow, this time around, the cream puffs didn't really work for me. Possibly because of the egg-y-ness of the puffs? I simply can't pin-point it. Well, I almost choked on the cocoa powder when I took a bite out of the chocolate puff. As for the chocolate cake --> WOOH! It's a chocolate lover's MUST to try! It's like a molten chocolate cake, with the insides soft and a little creamy. :9

The next day after end of exams, I went out to do some stuff and buy stationery supplies. On the way home, I stopped by Times Square to buy me some Krispy Kreme doughnuts! So unlucky that there's only another person in line, so I didn't get a free glazed doughnut. T-T

{ Oooh yes! I've been wanting to try these for a long time, ever since I stumbled across flickr photos of them and Mister Donut. }

{ Oo la la~ }

{ First bite with anticipatory yumminess. I was quite stunned. OMG THE SUGAR HIGH!!!! }

I was wondering if doughnuts can go even softer than Big Apple's or J.Co's. All I can say is Krispy Kreme proved to be worthy of all the excitement it stirred in KL recently. The glazed doughnut was crisp on the outside and mighty soft on the inside. With its amazing sugar glaze, I think this is possibly the best doughnut I've ever had. :D No wonder the original glazed doughnut is the most popular.

The first time I heard of a cakey doughnut, it was from the post on Bakerella. I'd always thought that doughnuts are bread-like. When I saw cake doughnuts at Krispy Kreme, I bought both vanilla and chocolate ones. To my disappointment, the chocolate one was a little hard and tasteless. But contrarily, the vanilla was delightfully soft, rich and simply yummy. Better than either cake or doughnut alone - no wonder they call them cake doughnuts!

Hehe, I first tried out Krispy Kreme in London, the original glazed mmg sedapppppp! I like how it just melts. Gosh one donut is never adequate. The other flavours can't really compete, that icing sugar's just too YUM. ^^

Oh yeah, how can you get a free glazed donut? The other day in Birmingham we bought a ton of Krispy Kremes for our host friends, and then the guy gave each of us (there were 5 of us, I think) a free donut. I thought he was just being nice. ^^;

Mmmm doughnuts! I've been wondering for a while - what makes Krispy Kreme give out the free doughnuts? I go various times of the day, when there are huge queues, no queues, start middle and end of day, but can never work it out!

I'm not really sure how the free-donut thingy works, but I've read online and heard from KL people that they give out free donuts to people in queue. Possibly for more than 5 minutes? Not sure... :P

Aneesah, I have to agree with you. The original glazed is THE yummiest! :D
