food, krispy kreme

13 May

london 9.47pm 10.7C cloudy friday 2016

the minced beef offer from iceland is great. i bought 4 packs yesterday. it allows me to make hamburgers for so cheaply. seeing all those adverts for hamburgers can make a person start craving them. haha. it even made me crave it,  so even myself is not immune to suggestions… just goes to show the power of adverts;  and the adverts dont tell the whole story either, showing the complete hamburgers when they are only selling the meat. to get the whole thing u still have to buy the buns, the lettuce, dressings etc. and prepare them.

the actual meat hamburger is really very easy to make from the raw minced beef. and 500mg of it, costing £1 can make a lot of beef patties, and that is just using two thirds of it… plus a third left over for making other dishes, like bolognaise for eg, or just stir fry in fried rice. i like both so it will be a tough decision which one i do finally. perhaps i can have both…

(if u consider  the original price of raw minced beef (£2) i can see why a lot of people will just buy the ready made beef patties in that asda advert,as it costs the same;  just for the convenience of it, and i can hardly blame them if they do). 

i like that krispy kreme , it is from a hole in the wall, outside their shop in holborn. it is the only one in london where u get this. yesterday when i went there there was a long queue, but today, maybe because i went there after 2pm, so away from the office lunch hour, and also this time there were two guys there helping input the order, there was no queue.

 i got a code sent to me via email from the company so i get it free. normally it would be £2. it is a new krispy creme that they are introducing one with nutella filling. the filling has the texture of chocolate; and because it is in a box, it kept its shape, and did not get squashed which makes it nicer to eat. last time i got one it was given to me in a paper bag and i squashed it. maybe that was why i did not enjoy that… but this one i like a lot. it is nice once in a while to eat them, esp if it is free. i am glad i dont have a sweet tooth, so i can resist the temptation.  they are really doughnuts with sweet filling inside. it really is amazing how much they have caught on, i heard recently that a big private company have bought the krispy creme company for $1.35billion. if u buy a dozen assorted ones they are about £11. so these nutella ones cost about double the usual price. but the filling really does make it more enjoyable. what i would think is that it might make people go buy nutella instead and just spread it on their toast. haha.

i have not eaten nutella before and so this one gave me an idea of what it tastes of, and surprisingly it tastes very much like what chocolate should taste of. so u can get the taste of chocolate without paying the high cost of chocolates. i think if anything, this doughnut will bring more customers to nutella.

      they are very light and not very filling that is why it is easy to eat a dozen and not feel full. unlike the bakery doughnuts which are fried… i suppose it is very unhealthy but i like those doughnuts and they are much cheaper. not that i eat a lot of them.
      nutella filling is onlynow being introduced to the uk, they start selling it in all stores here on 27may. maybe singapore allready has nutella filled in their stores. i have noticed many places get new lines before the uk.
