If you don’t like sweet treats, incredible desserts or down right deliciousness… then this blog post probably isn’t for you!
Here, at The Travel Visa Company, there are many things we are passionate about, like: worldwide travel, top notch customer service and our visa procurement services; but, there is one thing we all love; no matter what day of the week it is, and that’s FOOD!
After countless high profile meetings, intense and rigorous training sessions and hours of research and testing we have come to the conclusion that: Doughnuts really are our favourite sweet treat!
Just think about this: Doughnuts come in all manner of shapes, colours and sizes. Some are sweet and some may be sour. Some thick, some thin. Some big, some small. But are they really any different from you and I? Well, yes. Of course they are. They are doughnuts.
So, let’s get down to the serious business. Which doughnut is best? Commonly, doughnuts can be either in ring shapes, sometimes with toppings; or, a complete doughnut bursting with all sorts of yummy fillings.
Three most popular brands of doughnut makers are Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts and Voodoo Doughnuts. These brands offer distinctive and delightful flavours, such as: cookie dough, lemon meringue, apple pie, chocolate eclair, frosted maple kreme and so many more!
However, you may not know that there are, in fact, other variations of doughnut from every corner of the globe. These include (most popularly): the Dutchie and the Cronut. The Dutchie being a square doughnut, glazed and with raisins cooked into the dough itself. The Cronut, on the other hand, is a cross between a doughnut and a croissant.
In fact, most nations have their own variations of doughnut. Here are a select few:
- China – The ‘Youtiao’ is a long golden-brown deep-fried strip of dough.
- India – The ‘Vada’ can be made from a range of ingredients including potato!
- Kenya – The ‘Mandazi’ is a form of fried bread that originated on the Swahili Coast.
- Russia – The ‘Pączki’ is a pastry that came from Polish heritage.
- Turkey – The ‘Tulumba’ is a fried batter soaked in syrup, similar to churros.
- Germany – very similar to a traditional doughnut, without the hole in the centre.
