So this is Why People Line Up for J.CO Donuts

Every time I pass by the J.CO branch in SM City Cebu, there’s always a queue of people buying those donuts.

I queued for almost 30 minutes for these.

Out of curiosity (and my girlfriend’s request), I lined-up and bought a dozen of J.CO donuts for ₱350. Only those who are ordering take-out are required to fall in line.

I brought the box to my girlfriend’s boarding house and we ate the donuts. It immediately became clear why people line-up for these. J.CO donuts are so soft and with generous fillings and/or toppings.

My top pick of flavor is of course the Alcapone while my girlfriend automatically owns every flavor with chocolate.

After about three J.CO donuts each, we already felt full and the next bite seems like a chore. In the end, 4 and a half donuts were left for the morning.

Buying that 1 dozen box was a mistake, I should have chosen the half dozen option which costs ₱230. You can’t blame me for grabbing that ₱110 of savings! You will even save more if you order two dozens for ₱550 only.

My second purchase of J.CO donuts was still a dozen but this time, it’s for my family with eight members plus my visiting grandmother. Only the box was left.
