Bronuts Philippines

The whole cronuts craze may have died down but Bronuts has proven they are here to stay. First launched September 2013, I've first heard of them on Podium's Manly Eats last year but never got the opportunity to try them out. The only other brand of cronuts I was able to taste was Wildflour's (yes, I joined the bandwagon and was one of those who got in line just to get my hands on those sinful treats), and last January, sadly, they announced they will be stopping production of their cronuts. *sighing in unison*

So what is it about Bronuts?

Bronuts looks fun, sounds fun and tastes fun. They have out-of-the-box flavors and they name each flavor with a different kind of twist! Also, they both have sweet and savory flavors! Such a treat!

At long last, I was able to try a few of their flavors after visiting their new stall in SM Megamall. I ordered their best-sellers: PMS (pure melted Toblerone on what appears to be sort of red velvet cronut with cream cheese filling), Cream Cheese and Bacon (cream cheese and chives topping with sour cream filling with bacon bits inside) and Belgian Chocolate with Salted Caramel (belgian chocolate coating topped with toffee crunch plus salted caramel in the middle).

I've honestly would've gotten one of each flavor but I got to have self-control! (~will power! halp meeh plz~) LOL. Otherwise, all the weight I've lost before would creep back around in no time. Man, these things are just so hard to resist! :(

Being the sucker for chocolates that I am, PMS is definitely my favorite. Ugh. Don't get me started on that generous, luscious, thick coating of Toblerone. And with every bite, you get the sharp taste of the cream cheese in the middle. Definitely a great contrast to the sweetness of the chocolate. Yu-uhm. I could just lick my fingers all day from all that excess chocolate and cream cheese. That little triangle of Toblerone on top was a sweet bonus, too. Definitely will keep all your PMS and other womanly woes at bay. Hahaha.

I can't wait to try their other flavors. UGH.
