Here are some of our thoughts (please listen to the podcast for a complete description):
Ambiance/description of place
Chris – Wherever they park!
Margaret – Mini-school bus parked in parking lot.
Greeting / reception
Margaret – “Glad you came back”, filled out a ballot for a free t-shirt.
Margaret – $5 per a serving (tray / bag) – 10-12 mini per serving
Chris – Lots, as long as it’s donuts!
Margaret – plain, sugar, cinnamon sugar, powdered. Specials – S’mores, peanut butter & jam. Featured flavours – oreo, peanut butter cups.
Why we chose menu item
Chris – I had to choose donuts, and I like peanut butter
Margaret – I like sugar donuts – I’m a purist. I loved these – used to be a treat at the fair.
Charlotte – Wanted to try the Oreos and S’mores
Smell/look/taste of sugar donuts
Chris – Even though it wasn’t the sugar cinnamon variety, I really tasted the cinnamon.
Margaret – I liked these!
Smell/look/taste of Oreo donuts
Chris – Couldn’t really taste the Oreos.
Margaret – I sampled everything but didn’t have a full order.
Smell/look/taste of S’mores donuts
Chris – I’m not a big fan of marshmallows, so I didn’t really like these.
Margaret – Tasty but wouldn’t be able to eat many.
Smell/look/taste of Peanut Butter Cup donuts
Chris – My favourite. The peanut butter was, well, peanut butter. The glaze reminded me of what you would find on the Triple at Beavertails.
Margaret – Not bad but not a huge fan of PB.
Service/wait staff knowledge
Margaret – Owned by a teenager but he was at a tournament of some kind so his parents were working the fryer.
Overall dining experience
Margaret – If you like eating in your car, it’s a delightful experience! Maybe someday the bus will be at a location that has park benches so you can eat outdoors instead of in a car.
Would we go again
Chris – Okay as an occasional treat, but not something that I would go out of my way for.
Margaret – Hmm, I wouldn’t go out of my way to get more but if I were passing by their location, I might be tempted. Who am I kidding, of course, I will be tempted!
