A few of us shared the Mint Dark Chocolate after a scrumptious Omakase dinner at Tomo. It was delicious!
I kept the rest of the donuts in the fridge and brought it to work the next day. I shared the Hazelnut Milk Chocolate with MW & Cheryl the next morning. If the donuts tasted good the night before (on the day of purchase), it tasted even better the next day probably because I "nuked" (read: microwaved) the donut for 8 seconds. Yes, it has to be 8 seconds & not more nor less...Mia was very specific about it when she gave me the donuts.
Unfortunately, the microwave oven in my office didn't have a keypad but had a dial which timed by minutes instead. I literally stood in front of the microwave counting..."one thousand...two thousand"...etc. This was much to the amusement of the 2 pantry ladies & a colleague who happened to walk by when I was at "6 thousand". I felt a little like The Count from Sesame Street, "Eight! Muwahaha!" *thunder & lightning in the background*
If you ever buy these donuts, definitely "nuke" them for 8 seconds! The resultant effect was a warm, soft & yet fluffy donut! Although the donuts seemed a little moist after being warmed up, I think this is a small issue which can probably be resolved by placing a kitchen towel under the donut before "nuking". Everyone of my colleagues who managed to grab a morsel of the donuts were "sold" and fully understood what the fuss and the crazy queues are all about! The donuts are not excessively sweet and were fragrant!
My favourite flavours out of this box are as follows (ranked in order of preference):
1) Mint Dark Chocolate
2) Apple Cinnamon [I love cinnamon & when warmed up this was so fragrant it reminded me of Hot Apple Pie]
3) Hazelnut Milk Chocolate [I prefer dark chocolate but this tasted good because of the hazelnuts]
4) Coffee Roasted Almonds
5) Raspberry Dark Chocolate [I didn't really like the raspberry filling as it was a little too sweet for me but the dark chocolate helped to counter the sweetness]
6) Orange White Chocolate
If you're intending to spend sometime queuing, I've been told that the Suntec City branch's queue moves alot faster because their production line is much more efficient than the original branch @ Raffles City. Good luck!
