Donut dilemma

Good morning everyone,

The weather today is going to be almost exactly the same as it has been for the past few days-if you head outside now, it's going to feel quite chilly, somewhere around 2C or 3C, but it's slowly going to warm up and we should see a high of 11C or so. The whole week is going to be pretty much the same, although it is expected to get a bit warmer over the next few days., maybe a degree or two.

I may go somewhere for a coffee today. I haven't had a coffee for a few days now and I'm starting to feel it a bit. Seeing as I don't want to go anywhere busy, I'll probably head to the Mr. Donuts at Nishi-Hiroshima Station. I'm so predictable-I always get pretty much the same thing. I have a blended coffee and an "Old-fashioned" donut, either plain or glazed. Why? Because it's just like me-old fashioned. And by that, I don't mean I'm a little behind-the-times or anything. I, just like most people when they get older, tend to romanticize the past. I don't think there's anything wrong with doing that, it's natural.

Anyway, every now and then when I go to Mr. Donuts, they don't have the ones I want and have to break out of my comfort zone and try something new. In the past few years, there've been tons of donuts coming out that are like fusions of two types of pastry-there have been donut/croissants, donut/muffins and pretty much any combination you can think of. If it's sweet and deep-fried, they've probably tried to make it...ha ha!

And even though, I've tried the odd one, for the most part, I've just gone back to my favorite donut the next time. Sometimes, it's so disappointing that I even order my favorite one afterwards just to get the bad taste out of my mouth....ha ha!

You'd think that  I would have learnt by now-stick with the taste I like and don't worry about 'new' flavors or types of donuts, but they all look so good! It's hard to resist them!

There's another new one coming out in the new year. It's the Crème Brulee Donut. Crème brulee is a French pastry (like most good pastries) and it's that taste that most Japanese people associate with 'purin'-although I have no idea why. The only addition is that the top should be crispy-caramelized is the word they use to describe the process.

They don't come out till January 5th and they come in two flavors, Crème Brulee and Crème brulee with apple and cinnamon. One of them will set you back Y172. And they're probably disappointing...but that won't stop me from trying one! How about you?

Have a great day!
