Do they live up to the hype?
Box of Daniel's Donuts

It's 3pm on a weekday during the school holidays. I'm trying in earnest to keep the kids entertained at Monash University Clayton campus, whilst my oldest is undergoing a week-long series of one on one hour long assessments.

We've played cricket, had a kick to kick with the footy, explored the grounds... and planned a visit to the nearby Daniel's Donuts as a little sweetener in advance!

Whilst the rest of Melbourne have been devouring Daniel's Donuts in Springvale since the start of 2017, we are only just getting around to planning our very first visit!

This is despite the fact that Daniel's Donuts has been selling up to 10,000 donuts in ONE day! That's a crazy fact.

Yes, it was finally time for the kids to select one of the most hyped about sweet treats in the South East... but, what will they choose with a menu that includes all of these:

Vanilla slice
Cookies and cream
Golden Gaytime
Lemon meringue
Oreo glazed, Oreo cheesecake
Nutella KitKat, Nutella M&M, Nutella Snickers, Nutella Mars
Original jam donut, glazed jam donut, peanut butter jam
Salted caramel
White chocolate and raspberry
Bueno custard, coffee custard, honeycomb custard, bubblegum
custard, Snickers custard, banana custard, vegan custard
Bestseller.... The New Zealand style jam and cream donut
(Note that all flavours are not mentioned here)

Vegan donuts available include: jam, cinnamon, original glazed, Oreo glazed & peanut butter jelly.

Best Selling Donut

After much deliberation, they selected a Nutella KitKat, Nutella M&M, glazed Oreo, Nutella Mars, and 2 choc iced jam donuts to take home for dad (just in case one isn't enough). Best to buy 6 after all!

So did Daniel's Donuts live up to the hype?
Hard to tell with my kids, a treat like this isn't all that common in our house, so it was going to be a winner no matter how good or bad they were. If we were judging off the smile factor alone, then they were a huge hit, and I'd have to say a resounding YES!

Despite not eating any myself, I must admit that they smelt pretty darn good.

With 79,342 Facebook likes, a review rating of 4.7/5 based on 1663 peoples opinion and the fact that there is a queue out the front, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is probably the best indication of just how popular Daniel's Donuts are.

Although the main store is at 819 Princes Highway,
Springvale, you will also find Daniel's Donuts pop up stores around Melbourne from time to time. Currently, there is a pop up at Highpoint Shopping Centre, but keep up to date with their latest news via their Facebook page.

If you haven't already, why not get down to Daniel's Donuts and try them out for yourself. Priced at $3 each or 6 donuts for $15, they are pretty good value and are likely to put a smile on a loved ones face.

Also available is the usual range of bakery items, such as pies, sausage rolls, cakes and slices.

Parking is plentiful and free, tables and chairs are limited to the footpath space. Surrounding stores include Spotlight and Coles.
