Bay Bread Beignets - changes?

Bay Breads is selling three flavors of beignets. They are nothing like the beignets at Boulette's Larder, but more like a Berliner (pic below). You can get them plain, with apple or some sort of cream filling ... the word leche was involved. I just have no desire to eat another donut for a long, long while. Thought I would let anyone who is interested know.

Is Bay Breads moving toward Mediterranean? They had a few items with chorizo. In addition to the sandwiches in the long rolls, they now have sandwiches on small round rolls for $3.

I highly recommend the black olive roll with thinly slices chorizo and roasted red pepper. It is spread with butter. It is like an antipasto sandwich. I know that sounds awful, but it tastes great. The chorizo was like a hot Italian salami.

Not so successful was the salmon with cream cheese. Given the size, I thought it was not worth it.

Didn't care for the chorizo with goat cheese quiche either. This time the chorizo was cubed and I felt the spiciness overpowered the quiche. I did find out that they will heat the quiches for you because I was asked if I'd like it heated. I love the Bay Bread quiches when they are hot from the oven, so I liked the option of being able to get them heated.

So is there a change in ownership or something? Why the chorizo?

Also the little pound cakes are new to me. How are they? The one labelled 'pure vanilla pound cake appealed to me.
