Imagine a future where donuts come in horrid flavors: carrot, tofu, spinach. Now recognize that the future clearly lives in Korea. Now imagine how it could be worse…
Yep. In Korea, they’ve introduced the Broccoli Donut.
I tried to resist. This is a country of cakes, and bakeries, and wonderful mad original tasty treats. But Broccoli kept calling to me. On floor-to-ceiling video screens, images of these new “Salad” donuts floated by. “Vegetables,” they cried, like this was a healthy snack. A diet donut. A revolutionary taste!
Okay, it needed to be tried.
And you know what? It wasn’t bad.
Not great, but not anywhere near as bad as I expected. Like a dense zucchini bread, with broccoli instead. A little green dye. A thin layer of icing that tasted a little like cardboard.
But in a city of mad cakes and furious sweets, it was a stupid idea. Why were we at Dunkin’ Donuts in the first place??
