J Pops @ J Co Donuts, Giant Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya

J Co Donut anyone?

Seems appropriate yesterday's post was all about Krispy Kremes, that I blog about doughnuts today! Been busy running around doing errands that I must admit, I haven't had time to check out new places. Spied these last night when we were doing a quick spot of grocery shopping at Giant. The place is very very quiet during the weekdays....almost deathly quiet, wonder how some eateries are going to survive?

baby doughnuts slightly bigger than a 50 sens coin

The craze for doughnuts have definitely waned at late - you can get Big Apple Donuts everywhere you turn and J Co Donuts have lost their appeal to those who used to queue for it. I honestly am not sure how Krispy Kreme will fare in this kinda environment. Maybe people will queue up initially but with the availabilty of the other brands around, I can imagine their patience to wait will definitely dissapate quickly in thin air.

pop goes my heart - J Pops in 12 flavours, some even have fillings

J Co Donuts recently introduced these baby doughnuts known as J Pops. Similar to Dunkin' Donuts' Munchkins, these are the doughnut holes. Unlike those gaudy decorated Munchkins, these are actually miniatures of the actual doughnuts with the same decorations.

I love the caviar ones with the crunchy chocolate pearls

The J Baby Pops are available in a box of 24 for RM18 (including tax) and has 12 different flavours; Al Capone, Coco Loco, Mango, Tira Missu, Caviar Choco, Caviar Mint, Heaven Berry, Why Nut, Cheese Me Up, Mona Pizza, Oreo and Crunchy. As these are tiny, slightly bigger than a 50 sens coin, you don't get that crazy sugar rush with a normal J Co donut with a baby pop. However, they can addictive so don't eat them in one sitting or share them around or you will be bouncing off the walls with all that sugar!

minchow said...

Ooh, this is a very good development but so very dangerous! With the regular one, I know to stop at one (OK, maybe FOUR) but with these, they are so tiny that it's like tv junk food... sit me down in front of the telly with a box of 24s and they'd be gone by the end of the half hour!

Bangsar-bAbE said...

So small and cute!! But I prefer my donuts bigger. I think I can finish 24 pops and still want more. =P

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

KY said...

teckiee said...

millipedemom said...

Yes I agree I wonder how these restaurants are going to survive as I doubt the rental is cheap!

Babe_KL said...

i agree with teckiee! so tiny and make you to try each and every flavour hehe

boo_licious said...

ciki - well, quite a few places are still opening up so I guess there is still a mkt.

Allie - guess it will come eventually to Penang since they have opened one in JB already.

550ml - pop pop pop and they're all gone!

bangsar-babe - LOL, guess this means they will sell more?

Joe - share them around?

KY -they're probably not based on the Kota Dsara one's performance.

teckiee - must share with someone or else you get the same flavour though.

millipedemom - weird rite? So many eateries but no one eating them except during the weekends.

babe - temptations alrite, must resist..

When I was in PJ, there was no J-co donut in the area yet T_T . And my friend didn't take me to Pavilion, so I missed it.... looks really good.
