If you ever thought to yourself “I wish this were bigger” when chowing down on a Choco Butternut donut from Dunkin’ Donuts — then good news, the sweet tooth gods heard you: A bunch of bakeries in the Philippines have started to make supersized versions of the treat in loaf form.
The latest one to offer it is Trisha’s Treats, a home-based bakery in Quezon City that shared photos of the bright orange baked goods on Facebook yesterday.
A loaf is priced at PHP150 (US$2.93). According to the bakery, customers need to place their orders three days before they intend to eat it. They can do this by messaging Trisha’s Treats on Facebook with their name, order, and address. Payments need to be made through BPI bank deposit and orders will only be accepted after a customer sends 50 percent of their total bill. Deliveries will be made through Grab or Lalamove but the bakery said that they can also set meet-ups depending on the area.
Dunkin’s Choco Butternut donuts, particularly the munchkins, have become a cult favorite in the Philippines. It’s a chocolate donut rolled in a bright orange coconut and sugar mix.
It’s so popular that Dunkin’ Donuts Philippines even pranked its fans on April Fools’ Day this year by saying that the product had been phased out because of a “global Butternut shortage.”
“Bad joke,” said the donut’s biggest fans.
Before Trisha’s Treats, the Cavite-based bakery Chia’s Kitchen also went viral last week when it shared its version of a Choco Butternut loaf. Other small bakeries in the Philippines have also started to get in on the trend, with many selling on Facebook Marketplace.
