So, apparently donuts are a thing again.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, ‘Mr [Damian] Griffiths founded Doughnut Time in February 2015 from a hole-in-the-wall kiosk in Fortitude Valley next door to his Chester Street Bakery [in Brisbane]. He got the idea from a visit to Chicago where he discovered people queueing around a building for a tiny alcove-like store selling doughnuts.
In less than a year Doughnut Time has spawned a multimillion-dollar business and a staff of 80 people in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Sydney.
I’ve been noticing this popping up around Sydney and really wanted to try one…
I think it’s an attractive idea… the fun, gourmet donut, and the packaging and concept looks good.
My donut tasted like a Krispy Kreme classic (not a bad thing, they’re good donuts) and then completely amped up with some crispy waffle cookie thing, a kit kat, and the glaze. Six bucks… I guess that’s what a pop-up gourmet donut costs these days…
A fun way to indulge and get your regular sugar fix.
