Loblaws Doughnuts - Impressed

(Disclaimer: Call my palate unsophisticated or dulled, but I can't always find the time nor the energy to pay Granowska's a visit. )

I examined the freshly baked sweets section of my local loblaws and purchased four different kinds of doughnuts (maple frost, sprinkles, chocolate frost, can't remember the last one) to try. The first thing that struck me is how big they were compared to the doughnuts of my past, as well as the 'freshly made' sort of smell coming from them - something absent from most doughnut chains.

Coming home, I expected jelly or some sort of cream filling inside. I found none. But the doughnut did not need any of it in the slightest. Thick and gooey frosting with loads of sprinkles on top of a very fluffy but still quite cake-y doughnut was exactly what I was craving.

I would recommend their doughnuts with one caveat: a brisk walk on a lazy Sunday afternoon must follow. Failing that, perhaps a read of the Sunday Times while on the treadmill. These doughnuts are deadly!
