Jelly Modern Doughnuts

Monday, July 14, 2014

I get a little weak in the knees at the scent of a fresh doughnut. The aroma is just so inviting and irresistible that I salivate at the thought of biting into those round puffy fried dough treats....It's a blissful experience and I probably sound like a sugar-addict at this point but I seriously have a deep love for doughnuts. Luckily for my senses and not my waist-line, I stumbled across this wonderful Calgary-based gourmet doughnut bakery a few weeks ago!

Jelly Modern Doughnuts opened up it's Toronto location in June 2013 and offer up a large selection of gourmet doughnuts that come in over 20 different creative flavours. The inventive team at Jelly Modern are passionate about crafting Canada's favourite confectioneries by always creating fresh doughnuts on-site daily with fun flavours and local ingredients to tempt your sweet-tooth and mine ;)

Upon entering the College street shop, my eyes took a couple of seconds to adjust to the glossy white interior with hot pink lettering and design. The store had a very 'girly' vibe to it but of course my main focus was on the large display of doughnuts.  There were many different flavours to choose from and each doughnut came in a regular size and a smaller 3-bite size. Maigi was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and offered up generous samples of the doughnuts for me to sink my teeth into.  It was hard to decide which flavours I wanted to try but I went with some of the more popular flavours, s'mores, salted caramel, coconut, peanut butter cup, seasonal fruit and red velvet. 

All of the doughnuts were fresh, light and scrumptious but my favourite doughnut was coconut.  The coconut flavour was powerfully present and the whipped creamy coconut centre was drool-worthy. I also really enjoyed the red velvet doughnut which is one of their ‘cake’ doughnuts. The peanut butter cup was another winner with a creamy PB centre and delectable chocolate icing exterior.  My least favourite was the s'mores doughnut although visually it looked appetizing,  I just found that it was quite bland and it didn't really taste like s'mores. On the weekends you can find a larger variety of flavours on the menu such as crème brulee, maple bacon and skor bar! 

Jelly Modern also offers catering options for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, corporate events, or just about any gathering that requires confectioneries.  The doughnuts can be customized by size, flavour and colour for your event needs. For more information on delivery and catering you can call the store directly or check out the catering page here:

If you're a doughnut lover like me, I promise that you'll find a flavour at Jelly Modern that will satisfy your belly. If you can't make it in to the College Street shop you can also find Jelly Modern Doughnuts at Pusateri grocery stores.
