Anddddd I’m back… I’m so ashamed of myself, I couldn’t even stay away from Messina for more than a week. Probably gonna regret this when summer rolls around but whatever, I’ll just eat my feelings then.
For all the toppings and prices, check out my previous visit.
This time I went in earlier to avoid missing out on the donuts!! Luckily there were still heaps of donuts left and a few choux pastry shells in the cabinet. Surprisingly, there were no lines this time! It was very quiet as everyone was next door at the gelato store.
I got a donut base, burnt vanilla and fanta swirl topped with melted chocolate which then solidified afterwards.
Theoretically it sounds and looks delicious, but in reality it was a little disappointing for me. I am a donut fanatic and I’ve had donuts from all over the world so I can be a bit of a snob sometimes.
Ordering this at night may explain why it wasn’t the freshest tasting one as it was probably from the batch made that morning? The texture was off, the taste was bland, it was sort of like eating week-old white bread.
It’s uncommon for Messina to disappoint me but I guess there’s a first for everything.. Not my most memorable moment with them so maybe give this one a miss and go for the crepe or raspberry waffle cone instead.
I will most likely be back again later in the week and try the choux pastry (fingers crosesd that it’s fresh and tasty), stay up to date with all my food shenanigans on Instagram.
