Krispy Kreme Opens its first store in the South at Alabang Town Center!

 Krispy Kreme, our much-loved doughnut and coffee brand debuts its first store in the South of the Metro at the Alabang Town Center. Located at the posh The Street, the center’s new wing, Krispy Kreme is the most recent addition to the lively establishments in the said alley in Cortes delas Palmas and is snuggled with other high-end food and clothing establishments.

 Security Blanket was invited recently to see Krispy Kreme’s first baked creations theater as they celebrate Krispy Kreme’s 75th birthday. The baked creations theater is a first of its kind in Metro Manila that serves the brand’s signature Baked Creations fresh and straight from the oven piping hot, everyday. The Krispy Kreme Alabang Town Center branch also offers a full line of their premium items including the perfect pair of the world-famous Original Glazed Doughnuts and signature coffee.
 “It’s been a good six years,” says Mark Gamboa, Krispy Kreme Philippines’ Marketing Director. “We’re excited to finally open a branch here in the south to cater to the thriving community of Alabang. Since we opened our first branch in 2006 at the Bonifacio Global City, there has been continuous clamor for Krispy Kreme to go this side of town, and we’re glad we’ve finally opened a branch here.” Krispy Kreme continues to expand its reach to satisfy the palates of doughnut and coffee fans all over the country.
 Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed doughnut is undeniably still the best-selling doughnut variety. Invited bloggers were like kids in a candy store during the Krispy Kreme on-site branch tour. The eye-catching colors and designs of the donuts on display counter tickled not just our senses…not just our olfactory nerves (with such sweet aroma of freshly baked goodies wafting in the air!) and taste buds as well. 
Apple, Strawberry, Custard and Dulce de Leche fillings were such a delight. Who could resist such yummy treats? I was able to try decorating or designing my own Krispy Kreme donut too. Your hands had to work fast once you dip in the donut on the hot chocolate and put on the topping that you want (be it nuts, candy sprinkles, Oreo chocolate chips or whatever), because it dries up easily and when it does, the toppings won’t stick onto the donut. 
Here's a video of me while I was decorating a donut:

Four Cheese Pull Apart

I’ve tried the new Banana Walnut Kruffin and the Four Cheese Pull Apart. Wow! Am so thrilled to find out that the Banana Walnut Kruffin had a surprise tangy taste inside! The entire Banana Walnut Kruffin had sweet banana and nut taste, except when you get to the whipped cream part—it’s got some zest! In the end, it balances the sweetness of the kruffin and leaves a feeling of cleaning your palate because of the whipped cream’s citrusy effect.

As for the Four Cheese Pull Apart, it tasted just as heavenly as I had imagined it to be. Nothing really fancy, but it does taste like pizza, only better because it’s softer inside. It looks and tastes like our local ensaymada with four types of cheese.

Cookies & Cream Chocolate Donut 

For beverage, I loved their Coffee Jelly. It tastes just right, not too sweet. It’s got that perfectly brewed iced and chilled coffee with whipped cream plus bits and pieces of coffee jellies…ahhh, what can I say? Such a perfect treat for the summer!

Krispy Kreme Alabang Town Center opens its doors everyday at 7in the morning and closes until 11 in the evening. So if you’re from that Southern Metro community, you have plenty of time to drop by the store and grab your favorite donuts and coffee.
