AMW Reports: Donut Talk with Go Nuts Donuts

When I was working at Eastwood Libis area, I remembered me and my colleagues would order a box of Go Nuts Donuts just to relieve work-related stress!  There's even a time where we had a "company break" and all the departments were asked to join the "Treasure Hunt within Eastwood Area" and how giddy I was when I got myself a dozen of Go Nuts Donuts as we proceed to watch "Herbie".  *yahoo! Lindsay Lohan days! hahaha*

It has been more than 5 years, I've always have this image when you say "Go Nuts Donuts"....

As I was invited to attend a "Donut Talk" event at Go Nuts Donuts, SM Mall of Asia branch, I did not hesitated as I would love to give my body some more calories via donuts!  *laughs*  On a serious note, I haven't really tried much of their products lately, the last one was the Minnie  Mouse Donut I purchased for Mr. AMW, that was more than 3 years ago!  

Check out the huge surprise when I was offered this as soon as I got in the store!  I was literally looking around thinking: "Did they have these catered?" 

As I was wondering, I guess Trixie was ready to take the plunge of Go Nuts Donuts', ahm..non-Donut creation! :)

The event started when we arrived but it was wonderful seeing familiar faces!  The event was hosted by Mellow 94.7's DJ Vince.  

Ms. Christina Lagdameo of Go Nuts Donuts shared to us the latest product innovations of the brand!

Pizza Donuts
Php36.00 (approx $0.85) each! 
They are pizzas that look like a donut but are 100% pizza!  
Available in Barbeque, Garlic and Cheese, Hawaiian and Pepperoni

Cookie Bites
Php25.00/pack (approx $0.60)
Bite-sized chewy, flavorful cookies available in Classic Chocolate Chip, 
Double Fudge Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Oatmeal and Peanut Butter

Pocket Pies
Php45.00 each (approx $1.00)
Pocket Pies available in Tuna, Pizza and Chicken!

Tropical Donuts
Php18.00 each (approx $0.40)
I can't believe I gave Durian Delight a try!  It does have a hint of Durian scent and taste, OH MY!  All I can say's "acquired taste"...(and I haven't acquired it yet!  *laughs*)  But I'm sure Durian lovers out there will definitely enjoy this!!!

Summer Koolers
These are the koolers I've tried via a contest cooked up by the DJ!  *laughs*  Vince have decided to pick the "late comers" and we were asked to join in the contest, the person who finished the koolers first will be hailed THE WINNER!

Okay, I'm showing you how I did! In less than a minute, I was able to finish this amount... *laughs* 

Because I was being defensive "up there" hahaha I did not win!  The guy on the left most side of the photo below creamed us all!!!  He's the best of the best among the best "Kooler Sipper" in the country!  Okay I'm exaggerating!  But!  He finished in less than a minute!

Of course, Mother's Day is coming up so they are cooking something for our loving moms out there! :)

Another thing that the brand is proud of, is the fact that Go Nuts Donuts is proudly Filipino-made!  They use premium ingredients and even incorporate local flavors to appeal not only local but even international market! 

Can you imagine how wonderful it is to gift your foreign friends with Durian Delight Donut?  

Because Go Nuts Donuts is all about Proudly- Filipino, our friends from Yabang Pinoy were also there!  I sat beside a lovely lady from Yabang Pinoy, Ms. Maricris Sarino and she shared to us how Yabang Pinoy intensifies its consumer revolution campaign through the PHmade movement.

PHmade's tagline "It's Worth Buying For" encourages us Filipinos to think twice before spending!  I agree on how each Filipino can make a difference if they are conscious of every peso they spend, patronage of locally made goods and services should be a lifestyle thus encouraging homegrown brands to improve.  As a chain reaction, more job opportunities for Filipinos will be generated! 

Yabang Pinoy invites every Filipino to be part of PHmade movement by visiting Global Pinoy Bazaar on November 10-11,2012 as they showcase 100% Filipino made products!

As soon as the event proper was over, we were asked to create our own donut...

I thought of creating a "sunshine-y" donut that could put a smile on anyone's face who's busy on a work day, business meetings or errands.  It shows "me time" as I enjoy my doughnut and drink my cup of coffee.

I named my doughnut the "Smile Please" Donut, it's a reminder for us to smile amidst the pressure of life.

To show the happy vibe, I picked a bright yellow cream with colorful sprinkles on the side!  That shows how colorful our world is if given the chance to look around!  By the way, I picked pastillas as the filling because I want to incorporate Yabang Pinoy!  My love for Pastillas!

With the use of colorful chocolates, I asked help from the Go Nuts Donuts staff to help me create a big smile!

And of course, what's AMW without a pink flower?

Don't I look too happy with the outcome?  lol Childish, yes, but it puts a smile on my face, that's what matters!

Go Nuts Donuts is creating an online contest for guests and bloggers who attended, if you would like to see AMW's "Smile Please" Donut as part of their product line for 6 full weeks, please LIKE GoNutsDonuts on Facebook and vote for me at their POLL QUESTION.

Thanks in advance and 
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
