In a variety of flavours from sugar-glazed to chocolate cream and fondant filled, these ring shaped tempters have been responsible for many a dieter’s fall from grace

There is something about donuts — the dessert with a hole addresses our deepest food cravings with delicious sugar rush. Deep-fried, in a variety of flavours from sugar-glazed to chocolate cream and fondant filled, these ring shaped tempters have been responsible for many a dieter’s fall from grace.

Ravi Kumar, manager of a donut outlet feels donuts gives people a valid reason to enjoy their dessert.

“We offer customers space for get-togethers, parties as well as official meetings. On request, we also serve a donuts cake with extra icing and toppings for birthdays.”

Donut stores double up as coffee shops with people hanging out over donuts and coffee. Akansha Minz loves donuts saying: “I feel my meal is incomplete without donuts. I love all types of donuts. I am partial to those with liquid chocolate filling and chocolate topping. My friends in college and I enjoy donuts as they are affordable and also you get many flavours in one box.” For all who think donuts are a new entry in the market, there quite a few venerable bakeries selling them.

V.F. David, from Fatima Bakery on Hosur Road says, “We have been selling donuts for the past 40 years. We have three varieties — sugar-coated, jam and chocolate donuts. Our donuts are soft and a great hit among the young and old.”

Joseph from All Saints Bakery on Hosur Road says: “Our traditional sugar donuts are very popular.” With great taste come many calories and the associated health problems. Dietician Ranjani Raman says “Each donut contains approximately 200 calories. Making wheat donuts at homes is a better option.” So pull yourself out from your busy work schedule and treat yourself with donuts desert to add on to your sweetest and delicious food memories.
