Last Saturday, March 19, I was invited to celebrate the opening of Krispy Kreme’s Alabang Town Center branch, which coincidentally is also the celebration of the brand’s 75th anniversary. It was a jam-packed event as fellow bloggers brought their kids along and donut lovers queued up to order their favorite donut and drinks. I brought my daughter Gabby along for some bonding time.
What makes the ATC branch extra special is the fact that it is the first branch in Metro Manila to have the Baked Creations Theater. This is the area of the store where patrons can see Krispy Kreme’s baked creations being prepared. You know what this means, right? All your kruffins and pull-aparts are freshly baked! Yum- yum…
I’ve noticed that the ATC branch has a “homey” feel as opposed to other Krispy Kreme branches. The brand’s marketing officer informed me that it was indeed their intention. Let me say that it fits right in with ambiance of Alabang Town Center, which is really more of a lifestyle center than a mall. On weekends, you can find the court filled with playing children, expectant moms in their maternity clothes strolling about with their husbands, and bright-eyed teenagers hanging out with their friends.
Now, I’m really fond of Krispy Kreme’s original glazed donut. It goes so well with a hot cup of black coffee. But let me share with you my thoughts on three of the baked goodies I was able to try last Saturday,
Cream in baked goodies always seemed to unnecessary. But the Banana Walnut kruffins must be eaten with the cream in the middle. Otherwise, you might find it disappointing as my daughter did. This one’s my favorite.
The Sausage and Cheese pull-apart is a hit! It’s perfect for snack time and my daughter loved it best among the baked goodies we tried. And she really did pull it apart. Took off the paper lining, broke the bread part in two, and forked the sausage. The sausage, she said, reminded her of the imported ones my aunt sent us last month.
The Chocolate Chip Kruffin is tasty. Love the fact that it isn’t too sweet. Another perfect partner for the Krispy Kreme brewed coffee.
