Remember how much simpler things were in your younger years? Whenever life got way too complicated—however you defined complicated at the time—you could always turn to a sugary treat to make things better! So it's no surprise that even as adults today, we find ourselves turning back to classic Pinoy candies from time to time to soothe our emotional wounds. But in the name of going for even bigger and more indulgent heights, it's time you considered other spinoff treats that showcase nostalgic candies and snacks in an even more drool-worthy light. Case in point: Poison Coffee & Doughnuts' newest flavors, which are patterned after nostalgic confections like Hawhaw, Choc Nut, and Iced Gems!
These Pinoy candy-themed doughnuts will take you right back to your childhood:
Yup, Poison Doughnuts' new Pinoy Candy-flavored doughnuts are inspired by classic Filipino sweet treats—and they're bound to bring you back to the good ol' days of your childhood. There's the Chocnut doughnut (P95), for one, which interprets the chocolate-peanut candy of the same name as a doughnut with a Choc Nut glaze and salted Choc Nut crumble as its crowning glory. Prefer the dairy-forward taste of Hawhaw? Go for the Hawhaw doughnut (P95), which is similarly glazed and topped with bits of the famous milk candy, along with a ring of whipped cream.
Should you be in for a brighter, fruitier, bite, the Potchi doughnut (P95)—patterned after the gummy candy of the same name—has got your back; it's filled with a lush strawberry Potchi cream, and topped with crushed freeze-dried strawberries for a pop of real-deal berry flavor and tartness. For a more straightforward milk-chocolatey treat, go for the Curly Tops doughnut (P95), what with its Curly Top glaze, squiggles of Curly Tops around the edges, and coffee-custard filling for added depth.
Nostalgic Filipino sweet biscuits get the doughnut treatment, too. The Choco Mallows (P95) comes topped with a cacao-tinged whipped cream and a whole blob of fluffy marshmallow, before being coated in dark chocolate—we know, we know: s'mores who?! Perhaps the most awe-inducing of the lot is the Iced Gems (P95), which delivers the look and taste of the well-loved snack with its vanilla biscuit spread filling and colorful meringue topping.
Doughnuts, of course, are best paired with a good beverage—and though you can opt to serve these pastries with one of Poison's classic cups or bottles of joe, like the Bottled Americano (P150) or Bottled Café Latte (P170), we say consider one of the new Pinoy candy-themed drinks Poison's also come up with. The Chocnut Iced Latte (P180) balances out their nutty Choc Nut syrup and milk with coffee made from Yardstick Golden Ticket coffee beans, while the Potchi Strawberry Milk (P180) is an real creamy treat with Hawhaw milk and a topping of Hawhaw powder. On the ultra-whimsical end of the spectrum is the Potchi Strawberry Milk (P180), which gives you the fruity-rich profile of strawberries and cream in every sip.
