Todays post will be a food review – woo! Who doesn’t like hearing about good food possibly near you!
This past Saturday for our treat meal we (myself and the boy) decided to get some donuts. We like to treat ourselves once a week if we are feeling it because throughout the week we work hard, eat relatively clean, and are quite active. Usually it is me asking my boyfriend if he wouldn’t mind donuts for our treat meal but this time he asked me and I was like hell-to-the-yah.
The donut place we decided on is called Maverick’s Donut Company. They have two locations in Ottawa and have very good hours for a donut shop! You can pretty much get them whenever you want. Also, they do have vegan options as well as regular which I think is pretty cool.
As we approached the donuts I thought hmm let me take some pictures so I can give a review to my followers if they are ever in the area and are craving some donuts!
First of all, I think their branding is as cute as can be. I have always loved this teal blue colour and when you mix it with that crisp white it is magical. It draws the eye for sure.
Inside the shop they always have donuts fresh out of the oven and it smells heavenly. They have the little ones or big ones, whichever you please. Now I have never tried the little ones, but one day I will!
Their stock was a bit depleted when we came in because it was like 3 in the afternoon, but there were fresh new flavours right behind them!
Most of the donuts they have are cake donuts, so more dense then the traditional yeast ones. I enjoyed them though! Cake or yeast donut – I will eat it haha
We ended up choosing a box of 6 to try out. We couldn’t just go and only get one or two people!
We tried out their cinnamon bun, peanut butter chocolate, pumpkin spice, m&m, cookies & cream, and maple bacon (respectively listed from left to right, top to bottom row).
I would have to say my favourite was the maple bacon – always loved a good maple donut since I was little. My go to at Tim Hortons was either a vanilla sprinkle donut or maple dipped haha still to this day I will get a maple dip when I go there! Anyways back to the review! I also loved the cinnamon bun one because I love cinnamon. If you are a chocolate and peanut butter lover I would highly recommend trying theirs out – it wasn’t overly rich and the peanut butter topping was so smooth.
All of their flavours taste as they advertise so you know what you are getting! With some flavours too you can pick either vanilla or chocolate for the donut body haha I don’t know how else to say it – you know like the base of the donut.
They were all moist and have a good ratio of topping to dough. In conclusion, I would recommend trying Maverick’s Donut Company out if you are in the area and craving donuts. These delicious circles will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth! Thanks Maverick’s for making my Saturday as sweet as can be!
Do you guys like donuts? If you do whats your favourite flavour?
Until next time,
