I just got home and was surprised by two dozens of J.Co Donuts! They arrived here in the afternoon while I was at work and only got to taste them a few minutes ago. They all looked so yummy and couldn’t really choose which one to taste first. As you can see, someone (not me) was too eager to taste the donut before the photo sessions are going on hence, explains the space on the box of Al Capone donuts.
J.Co Donuts originated from Indonesia and they have already expanded to Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Singapore. They will be opening their flagship branch here in Manila (specifically in SM Megamall) on
February March16, 2012. I believe another branch will be opened in Greenbelt 3 afterwards. I was curious to know who brought the franchise of J.Co Donuts and the PR told me that they were brought here by Contemporain Foods Inc (sister company of Liwayway Marketing). They already have a kitchen here and they are busy training for the crew who will be working for the flagship store.
So I decided to first taste Al Capone, it’s made of white chocolate sprinkled with almonds. Not sure if the abundance of almonds will be like this when they sell it at their stores soon.
The other box is composed of assorted J.Co donuts. The green one is Green Tea flavored with cream filling. Other flavors were coffee, strawberry and many others. What I liked about their donuts is that they’re not very sweet compared to Krispy Kreme. I am just not sure on the price yet .
Aside from donuts, they will also be serving their signature coffee and yogurt ice cream.
Good news for the first 200 customers on February 16, 2012 because J.Co Donuts will be giving away a surprise! Take note that they will open at 9:00 am so if I were you, better arrive early!
