If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time then you might remember I went through a phase of checking out all the bubble tea places in town. Bubble tea is now dead. I think Lilly and Willy is still open but the others are long gone. Bubble tea’s last bubble was barely deflated before the next king of food was sat on the throne – donuts.
The Dunkin Donuts that opened in town a few months ago was riding proud on the trend wave but now there is a new kid in town. The cronut.
When I heard that the cronut had come to Frankfurt via The Donut People, I knew I had to try it out. A short shout-out on Facebook later and I had a small team (…2 people and myself) of people ready to try the cronut. This is the thing that made people queue up from 4am to eat.
And was it worth it?
Yeah, I guess so. We got a box of 6 since the two boys wanted 2 each (and who can turn down sugar? NOT ME) and the second one was definitely a bad idea. It was very sweet, a little crumbly…but I probably wouldn’t have one again in a hurry. Actually, the orange espresso (above) was the thing that stole my heart/taste buds. Think Terry’s chocolate orange…in a little glass.
And yes, we did do the “don’t lick your lips until you’ve finished the donut” game. I believe I won…
And what’s the next food trend? Well, I’m no expert (unless eating lots of food makes me an expert…in which case I am the world’s biggest [lols] expert) but I’d say the burritos are going to be big…
I’m off to Turkey today! I’ll have internet so I expect to stay blogging but it might be a little less frequent. BYEEEEEE
