Poison Coffee & Doughnuts is not known to shy away from all things creative and new. Their artisan donuts have become a favorite of many because they come up with many limited edition and mainstay flavors that always pique curiosity.
This time around, the three flavors inspired by our own Filipino kakanin are featured on their menu: were first rolled out by Poison last August to celebrate Buwan ng Wika, and are now a mainstay on the store’s doughnut menu.
Poison’s take on the classic pairing of fresh mangoes and sticky rice comes in the form of a stuffed donut. The Mangga’t Suman Doughnut (P105) is light and fluffly, with a smear of latik that’s dotted with rice crispies. A big bite into the donut reveals a creamy mango coconut mousse, which is also reminiscent of flavors from a mango cream pie.
The rich and creamy pudding gets a twist in the Maja Blanca Doughnut (P105). The donut is topped with icing and topped with smoky latik crumble. Inside is a generous filling of coconut pudding with corn, and sweetened jackfruit. It’s a take on maja blanca with langka!
Minatamis na macapuno (sweetened macapuno) is a very versatile flavor, enhancing other sweets like leche flan, halo halo, dessert pies, and ice cream. Poison’s Macapuno Doughnut (P105) has a creamy, subtly sweet macapuno custard filling, and has a topping of buttery crumble.
This is not the first time they’re introducing Filipino flavors on the menu, though. Their Champorado sourdough-brioche doughnut has been around for quite awhile, and features 65% dark chocolate, rice crispies, and a topping of tuyo flakes. They have also in the past created limited edition puto bumbong and bibingka donuts. We’re crossing our fingers they’ll be reintroduced during the holidays!
