So you think you like the sound of any of those sugary sweethearts? Well, you might not even have to step off the couch because Uncle Donut now delivers- utilising the wonder app that is Deliveroo- (or Deliverydoo as I’ve been calling it the last two weeks). Let’s taste
Clockwise from top left: Strawberry Shortcake, Brandy Snap, Chai Cheesecake, Pina Colada, Peanut Buttercup and Pumpkin Pie.
Anybody been to the States? Certainly reminded some taste testers of their American vacations around Thanks Giving holidays and Christmas holidays.
Eureka. This one is layer and layer of gold- A mixture of sweet crunch, silky custard and booze! Even the top appears to be sprinkled with Sovereign Hill’s finest mineral! Brandy Snap won’t disappoint.
Oh my god! Maaate! Holy Shit! These are a couple of direct quotes that were being thrown around by on dedicated taster. Safe to say it’s a winner!
Unbutton your Hawaiian shirt and put up the feet- you’re on vacation! This one is fruity with the tang we love! Summery in the midst of a southern winter. Hopefully it doesn't remind you too much of that one night in Bangkok you’re trying to forget.
I thought this one might calm me in the same way the tea does, it didn't, however, it was still creamy and delicious!
Alrighty then this is my favourite. I’m not going to lie, its sweet, real sweet thanks to the Strawberry Gel and Vanilla French Buttercream combo. I wonder if they've thought of bottling these elements to be sold as a breakfast spread.
This month the UD team also gave us 4 very impressive donuts on their new ‘Staples’ menu. I’m not going to go into too much details but can assure you that they won't disappoint. The flavours are Cinnamon, Strawberry, Strawberry Jam and Boston Crème. The Boston Crème could really be found in one of the monthly menu’s, yes its that good! Hot tip- zap the Strawberry Jam for 12 seconds in the microwave!
Ok that’s my opinion for all its worth (nothing), now go and form yours- 100 Little Malop St, Geelong.
Please note: In no way shape or form am I a food critic, I am just passionate about eating dessert.
