In honor of Mardi Gras, I stopped in Federal Donuts at 16th & Sansom to try a new donut flavor. You may remember that I’ve posted about a few other flavors that I’ve tried and I’ve always been happy with them! Now I’m more into the “Fancy” donuts than the “Hot Fresh” donuts. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a few of the Hot Fresh donuts and they are good, BUT they don’t have any icing on them and you all know I’m a sucker for icing.
The donut that I got was the Turkish Mocha Fancy. It has a Mocha glaze with cardamom and “a flurry dusting of Ground PTs Coffee,” according to Federal Donuts.
I love coffee. I love coffee flavored things. My absolute favorite ice cream from Scoop DeVille here in the city is the coffee ice cream with oreos mixed in. That’s what I got the first time I went there (probably about 9 years ago), and that’s what I get every single time I get ice cream from there. It’s so amazing I can’t even pick anything else out. Do you have one of those places that you go to and you get the same.thing.every.time? Well that’s me with coffee ice cream at Scoop DeVille.
Long story short, when I saw this donut on their menu, it had my name on it. And let me tell you this was amazing. I love it. I would take this one over the chocolate peanut butter donut any day (and I liked that one!). The donut was soft & fluffy, and the flavor the cardamom brought to the donut was out of this world. This definitely wasn’t a heavy donut at all. It took everything I had in me to not lick the paper. So if you’re near 16th & Sansom or Two Street, you have gotta try this bad boy.
