Doughnut Time is here and they have created a range of doughnuts that will make you drool, with a name that will make you giggle. Doughnut Time can be found at very few locations, luckily they are spread throughout Australia (well, the East side of Australia at least, sorry Perth!). The different flavours combine a mixture of your favourite snacks (such as pretzels, Cherry Ripe and Nutella etc) and mix it with a sh*tload of sugar, giving you an out of body -overdosing- experience that you cannot just find at your local doughnut (donut) shop.
Spotted from top to bottom doughnuts include:
Love at First Bite - Nutella-filled with cinnamon sugar,
Veruca Salt - Salted caramel-filled with cinnamon sugar,
Creme De La Creme - house-made custard and signature toffee,
The Elvis - Raspberry jam-filled with banana and peanut glaze and pancetta,
Home Alone - Milk chocolate glaze, wafers, topped with Kit Kat and dark chocolate glaze drizzle,
Mariah Cherry - Cherry chocolate glaze, topped with Cherry Ripe pieces,
Viva Las Vegan - coconut and raspberry glaze, topped with a pistachio crumb,
The Butternut - Pistachio and brown butter glaze,
The O.G - Original glazed,
Ferrero No Share - Dark chocolate glaze, roasted hazelnuts and a Ferrero Rocher,
Slim Shady - Vanilla glaze with mini M&M's
The George Constanza - Caramel and pink salt glaze with salted pretzels
Now for a closer look to really give you some eye candy.. and no I am not talking about your pool cleaner Alonzo. You might find him on another blog, but not ours!
Given the large selection, it was a tough decision to make. Matt surprised the both of us when he didn't try the Nutella (he normally foams from the mouth like a rabid dog when he even hears the word "Nutella"), instead we chose the Viva La Vegan and the Butternut. Christie took her time contemplating between the Creme De La Creme (purely because creme brulee) and The Butternut... however the pistachio crumbs won it over for her in the end.
One thing we should mention is that the doughnuts resemble those of Krispy Kreme donuts. It is probably due to the glazed sugar coating, however this doughnut tasted like a it had less oil and more of a cake-like texture. It's definitely hard to eat without finishing up with melted sugar all over your fingers. Might be wise to accept the plastic utensils on offer!
Viva Las Vegan
In terms of flavour, this doughnut was amazing. The coconut and raspberry glaze was SUUUPER sweet! Each bite I was salivating for the next and once it was finished and the sugar high was over, you are left with regret and eptiness... until you buy another doughnut that is!
The only thing we didn't enjoy about this doughnut was the texture. Being a vegan creation, the doughnut is made using some weird vegan ingredients which made it sponge-like and quite bouncy. Matt ended up stealing Christie's doughnut half way through (after finishing off all the icing that is).
If you love your sweets, and more importantly if you love your sugary round treats and want to know the difference between a doughnut and a donut, then make sure to check out Doughnut Time and let us know which one was your favourite. Psssst there is not difference, other than how us Aussies spell doughnut ;)
