Donut disappointment!

Ever since my first Krispy Kreme donut, I’ve been wishing they’d open a store here in Perth. Well, someone’s decided to fill the glazed donut void with their own version – Dreamy Donuts. There’s a new Dreamy Donuts stand at Carousel Shopping Centre. They offer glazed and filled donuts that look very Krispy Kreme-esque (no crullers though!). I decided to try one myself recently and after much careful consideration, selected a strawberry cream donut.

I thought it was a strawberry cream donut - that's what I asked for and that's what they gave me!

When I got home and bit into my donut, I was dismayed and bitterly disappointed to taste flavour that was completely different to what I’d expected! I bought what I thought was a strawberry cream donut but instead got one filled with… cheesecake! It definitely wasn’t a bizzaro strawberry cream that had gone off, either – Jac and I both tasted it again – yep, definitely cheesecake. Mysteriously, there’s no cheesecake on the Dreamy Donuts menu (unless there was a special of the day that I don’t recall, which somehow masqueraded as a strawberry cream donut), but you’ll see on the Dreamy Donuts menu that the criss-cross pattern on the donut I received does resemble the strawberry cream donut depicted on the menu. “Curiouser and curiouser!”

It's a cheesecake donut

I may try another dreamy donut another time – I do like the sound of Tia Maria and hazelnut. But I think we’ll just have to continue buying Krispy Kremes from the airports whenever we travel over east, or get friends and relatives to do the same.
