Our country bore witness to one too many fads this year as frequent as our storm visits (and to think we haven't entered the ber months yet). Speaking of fads, don't bother counting J.CO Donuts on the list.
Why? Try visiting their SM Megamall store. Or if you're living in the north (like I do), check out their Trinoma or SM North branches. You'll see (still) long lines as if the stores were on their first day.
If you're one of those many people who always fall prey into participating in the long human centipede exhibition at J.CO, I can't blame you. I remember taking part in several occasions myself. Eyes on the prize —that's my mantra. That's how I survive the wait. The prize? Alcapone!
Coinciding with the opening of its new store are the new Carousel donut and Caramel Salt beverage flavors. (There are more flavors being introduced as you're reading this, check it out on J.CO Philippines Facebook page.)
