Croughnuts by Dolcelatte
The third of our cronut / croughnut series will be the Croughnuts from Dolcelatte. I’ve been hearing lots of good things about their version and I was really excited to try it out. Currently, Dolcelatte has 11 variants that costs PHP 110 each (PHP 660 for a box of 6). You would need to make reservations at least a day prior to ensure that you can avail of it. Walk-in is possible but there’s a big chance it will be out of stock.
We were given a box of six (6); courtesy of Dolcelatte and we had our own taste-tests in our office pantry. In my first two cronut adventures, I would pick them up and bite them like how I eat a doughnut. However, for this one, I tried a different approach. I took a fork and a knife, and sliced through them… piece by piece.. like a sir!
This one I tried at home.
Mmmm nutella! It’s one of those sinful spreads that you’d like to put in wheat bread to kill any diet thoughts that come into mind. Upon my first serving, I was instantly surprised that the filling wasn’t the bavarian cream but actual nutella. As for the bread, it was chewy and had hints of crispness on the outer layers. The texture of their bread would be similar to the other variants as well.
Does this mean the flavors not only reflect on the toppings but on the fillings themselves? Well… let’s find out in the next few slices.
Ohh this looks like the alcapone from J.Co. Loved the crunchy almonds and caramel filling!
Why does cinnamon usually get paired with apples? Would you know?
The apple cinnamon croughnut provides a different feel/taste as it will remind you of apple pie.
How did they know that I’m a big fan of caramel? Almost all the croughnuts in the box had caramel in their ingredients. Well, who am I to complain?
Peanut Butter Crisp
Yum yum peanut butter! They used Butterfingers on this. At the back of my mind, I was hoping Reese was used because that would have been epic!
Our last but not the least. Their best seller turned into a croughnut!
What I loved about Dolcelatte’s croughnuts was the abundance of flavors and how each flavor stays true to the name (e.g. call me nutella, then I let you taste nutella). It may be pricey for something that you can devour in seconds but the experience was worth it.
Disclosure: Dolcelatte paid for the croughnuts.
