Dunkin Donuts are offerin...
Yep apparently the first ...
The Doughnut Man was quit...
A Gourmet Monstrosity
LOCATION: 73 Glenferrie Rd Malvern VIC Australia
This is perhaps the best known ?gourmet? bakery in Malvern and I am well acquainted with their high-quality sourdough bread and savory pastries. So it was with much surprise that I soon discovered the horror that awaited me in the form of a small custard doughnut. The custard was decent, with a well-chosen subtle level of vanilla, yet the sugar dusting on the outer shell was far too coarse. The dough was devastatingly stale, very dense and generally quite hideous. I could not help but feel that it served no valid purpose other than as a vehicle to transfer the eatable custard into one?s mouth. And yet this vehicle was a like a harsh and barbaric prison trapping the moderately sophisticated custard within. This doughnut reminded me of why I greatly dislike the western wheat flour doughnut: it is a blob of poorly produced dough with copious amounts of fat and sugar. To me, it is the symbol of all that is wrong with Western popular culture.
