I was walking with a friend near the Hauptbahnhof recently, when we stumbled (almost literally) across this sign:
The Dunkin Donuts brand has made it’s way to some of Germany’s larger cities, and I go out of my way to eat there whenever I’m in Frankfurt or Berlin. (The Pflaumenmus, plum jelly, is absolutely delicious.) Dunkin has thus far failed to reach Regensburg, however. Up until now, the only place that really had Donuts in town was McDonald’s McCafe, and I use the word donut very generously when speaking of McDonald’s. The bakeries in Bavaria all serve Krapfen at certain times of the year, but a Krapfen isn’t quite the same thing as a Donut. It’s very similar, but it’s not quite the same.
Enter Tasty Donuts & Coffee, a German chain that tries to mimic the success of Dunkin Donuts. I have now tried their “6’er Box.” They have a “12’er Box,” but I’m eating these without assistance and twelve is just too many for me alone.
Here’s my selections. I prefer the unfilled to the filled donuts, but they were all pretty darn tasty-
- Top row: Classic, Rasberry Kiss, Tasty Cream.
- Bottom row: Classic, Peanut & Jelly (filled with a peanut flavored filling), and “Schokoloco” (filled with a chocolate cream.)
All in all, these were very tasty and I’m pleased as
cake donuts that we have one in Regensburg now.
