#5: Jelly Modern Doughnuts

Ever since Jelly Modern Doughnuts popped up on Urbanspoon's "Talk of the Town", I have been inevitably rather curious. I like doughnuts. I also like cupcakes. And macarons. Actually I like almost anything that is sweet.
Anyway, Jelly's got some pretty interesting flavours. You can check them out here.

The unfortunate bit is that the different flavours are available on different days.

They also have two options for most of their filled doughnuts -- you can get regular ones or "three bite" ones.

My dining buddy and I happened to be rather curious about everything, so we decided to order a pack of 16 "three bite" doughnuts and get one of every flavour that was possible (in mini form). That totaled (I believe) 11 different flavours. And we, being the genius people that we are, split each one in half and tried all of them.

So I basically had like 5.5 doughnuts for breakfast. Feel free to judge.

I will talk about them one-by-one, because I can. They're supposed to be in the order I ate them.

1: lemon curd

Ever since sister Laurie made lemon cake and I had some, I have since fallen in love with lemon-flavoured desserts. So this one was already an automatic win for me. (It proved itself, too; I thought it was quite tasty.)

2: classic jelly

Again, one of those insta-win. I love jam. I'm usually more of a strawberry jam as opposed to raspberry, but this was still really good.

3: maple bacon

I don't even know if I need to say anything about this. Maple and bacon is the ultimate breakfast combo. Imagine that in doughnut form...

( Now I'm starting to forget what order we ate them in so I will just continue randomly. )

4: espresso... something

It's not on their menu. It was pretty good, even had a coffee bean on top. But I probably wouldn't get it again, mostly because there were other, better things.

5: valrhona chocolate

Tasted like dark chocolate, which I kind of love. They did a nice job of it and it was not too sweet, which was really good.

6: peanut butter cup

So if you know me, you probably know about my history with peanut butter. Basically, I used to say I didn't like it (because other influences in my life didn't like it). Then one day I realized that I love peanut butter and I will say it openly.

They did a nice job of this one too. Nom nom nom.

7: coconut

I usually am not a huge coconut person (see last post regarding coconut ice cream) but this was actually really good. I was pleasantly surprised.

8: vancouver canuck/nanaimo

Basically like a nanaimo bar in a doughnut. Not bad, but not particularly epic in my opinion.

9: marshmallow

Surprisingly good -- I thought it would be too sweet, but it was actually not too bad.

10: s'more

Disappointed in the "chocolate"... that is all.

11: boston cream (this and 8 are for the sake of hockey...)

Tasted... pretty much like a regular Boston cream, I think. I am not a huge fan of Boston cream so if you are, you probably don't want my opinion.

(Note the cute forks that are practically sporks!)

Anyway, still gotta go back to try my PB & J. Then I will be satisfied, for the most part.

PS Random note: I keep wanting to say modern jelly doughnuts. The name confuses me...
