Gonuts Donuts' Choco Hazelnut and Cookie Butter Spreads + Sugar Twist

Amidst my preparation for the upcoming board exam, a simple package came up from Gonuts Donuts, and that event instantly became the highlight of the day. Well, that was practically because all day long I was just facing numbers and anything accounting-related; hence, seeing something other than those things simply induced great happiness within me.

You may probably think that what arrived were donuts – after all, what would you expect from “Gonuts DONUTS” right? Surprisingly, the package contained something different, and I guess these are new products the donut shop just launched. Alright, I know you are curious (the same way I was when the package arrived), so let me reveal the things I got.

There were three things that came with the small delivery box namely the Sugar Twist, the Cookie Butter Spread and the Choco Hazelnut Spread. Unfortunately, since I was having a terrible cold that time, I needed to wait a few days before I can actually taste each of them. However due to my fast recovery (thanks to all those who prayed for me), it became sooner than expected that I got to satisfy my curiosity.

The sugar twist was visually promising; however, beauty wasn’t “skin-deep” for this particular matter. At first bite, you’ll enjoy the mild sweetness and slight crunchiness, but it had a peculiar aftertaste which I believe was a manifestation of being short with freshness. Well, perhaps it was because of the handling and delivery process that caused it, but I would have really appreciated the twists if they tasted really oven-baked fresh.

This spread is entirely different from the usual ones I am acquainted with such as the Nutella and Crumpy because of the rather complex flavour. Usually, from those two other brands mentioned, I get a uniform texture and flavor of choco-hazelnut goodness; however, for Gonuts Donuts' spread there was something else that I found somewhat distracting, and the somehow granulated texture didn't help either.

Honestly, it wasn't so bad, but it just didn't fit my preferences when it comes to a choco-hazelnut spread. In other words, it's not my kind of spread. However, I understand that each of us has different interpretation of taste and flavors; hence, I still think that you could give this a try!

Okay, among the three goods that came, this one was something I found decent and compatible with my taste preference. Of course, it had the cookie butter goodness in it, but there was an overpowering taste that I assume came from the nutmeg (since it’s one of the ingredients). Frankly, I still enjoy the known brands more, but this one is definitely okay for me. Also, I can sense that others will find the nutmeg blend enjoyable, so I’m urging you to give this one a try.

Additional note (7/23/14): After consuming almost half of the spread, I realized that the nutmeg blend is a bit of an acquired taste. Now, I'm loving this spread more!
