J. CO green donuts

J.CO donuts

Martine let me choose from her box of donuts straight from J.CO in Manila. It’s a successful Indonesian brand actually. I got half of the Green Tease (LOL the quirky green color is reminiscent of Soylent Green), obviously with green tea in it, and half of an Avocado Dicaprio (easily the weirdest donut flavor I’ve ever encountered). I don’t know if it’s because of the 10-hour travel to take the donuts here, but they must be the strangest tasting donuts ever! The frosting was waxy to the taste and the texture of the donut itself was a cross between old bread and poor quality chiffon cake that no one touches in the fridge.

We bring home other brands like Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, but I’ve never encountered the same staleness issue before.
