During the travel of my daughter to Bicol last December 25th where they were stranded for more than 14 hours in excess of the usual travel of 10 hours , the eateries where the bus stopped , were not to the liking of my daughter . Good thing she has bought 2 dozens of JCo donuts as her gift to us . It’s these she ate the whole day for her meals . So , when she gave me the box, when she arrived , it was minus six pieces already . The ones missing were the avocado and the green tea flavored ones. My favorites also . Can you survive eating your favorite donuts for meals the whole day ? I guess I can , when there’s nothing more to ease my hunger .

She should have grabbed maybe bread to eat .. donut would make me tired easily if it was for my meal all day hehe. The donuts sure look delicious :)

@SIMPLYD Oh for lunch snack that is okay. I thought she did not have dinner as her journey was a long one (over 14 hours). I am sure she enjoyed the chinese restaurant you all went too. Oh hehehe I thought it was your image..

I should replace all medicines and eat donuts instead. My first job in my life at 14 yrs old was working in the donut shop..I got so heavy.

Really , you can replace your medicine with that . ha ha ha So, i suppose because you are working in the donut shop , you have big discount? Are they similar to those donuts in the picture?

@TiarasOceanView, hi freind? Long time, no hear from each other. For me, I cannot survive with donuts. I dislike sweets.

Looking at the photo those donuts are so inviting that anyone would survive on them.

I assure you , they are so delicious . They should be because a piece costs 45 pesos or $.95 .

If it's J Co donuts, maybe I can.. Hihihi unlike with the KK donuts which are tooooooo sweet... I love J Co and now after seeing that picture, I would love to get a box next time we visit Baguio. Oops! That's the nearest J Co branch here. Poor me...

Yes, it's not as sweet as Krispy Kreme . Why , where is your place of residence , my friend ? I am not surprised Baguio has a store of that too . Hefewhen it was new , people lines up to buy . Not anymore .

@SIMPLYD Just a few miles away from Baguio City, hehehehe... in the lowlands... Yup, I had heard there are two branches there, one in SM Baguio and the other in Camp John Hay. I had also tried to fall in line for about 30 minutes before, just to have a box to bring home to my family. I am not sure if that's still the case now that it's been there for more than 4 years.

@brokenbee I think it's not like that anymore . You see , even here when there's a new store everybody wants to have a taste of it, that the store would have lots of people lining . But after a month or two , it's not anymore . Areyou from the same town as ingrid ?

Well , it is understandable because they're her favorites too , just like me . She always would bring them whenever she comes home because they're my favorites . But i reminded her that recently we already have a JCo store here in the newest mall. Do you have that store too in your place already ?
