While checking out the latest huge mall that is the Pavilion KL, the house mate, friend, and I decided that we should have some appetizer before dinner. The famous J.CO Donuts just opened their first franchise in Malaysia at this mall, perfect.

half a dozen sweetness that go straight to your waist line

J.CO Donuts is actually a chain from Indonesia, often criticized for copying the style of the even-more-famous Krispy Kreme (from the States but have a few shops in Indonesia) and doing a very good job at it. It’s been quite a number of years since I had Krispy Kreme donuts and I do wish they are available in Malaysia too.

my favorite would be the original glazed donut

We ordered half a dozen + a free donut for RM 10.95. Individual donut goes for RM 2.00 to RM 2.30, but the more you order, the cheaper it gets. A big box of 2 dozen donuts would be less than RM 30 instead of the expected RM 48. Pretty interesting pricing scheme I’d say, sort of like an evil plot to make you fat.

this dude seems to be enjoying the snack

The donuts were sweet, and to be fair, pretty good. The fillings were generous, and the dough very soft and airy, they have a very nice bite to it and does not fill up the stomach too quickly. My favorite would be the original glazed donut, and although I prefer Krispy Kreme’s version that has a slightly crunchier texture, this one is plenty good too.

I also have sampled the Big Apple’s glazed donut at the Curve, this one is on the same par. Try it.
