DomNuts is dedicating the month of February to Pineapple Doughnuts – specifically the quest to find a great one. Each week will be a new review about a pineapple doughnut I have found recently. This week, it’s another petrol station doughnut…
In my never-ending quest to find the perfect pineapple doughnut, I found myself in Sans Souci in Sydney’s south, at the footstep of the Captain Cook Bridge.
I stopped at the BP Truckstop petrol station for some petrol and saw a big sign advertising doughnuts. You can have the biggest doughnut sign in the world but you’ve got to have the doughnuts to back it up.
By the way, I don’t know why it’s called ‘Truckstop’. There were only cars there.
I had a look at their doughnut range, which was self-serve with a pair of tongs.
Strangely, they seemed to have 2 different types of pineapple doughnuts. I got one of the ones that were a brighter yellow, with the thought that it’d have a stronger pineapple flavour.
I think I made a good decision.
This wasn’t a bad pineapple doughnut. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s one of the better pineapple doughnuts I’ve had in a long time. And if you follow DomNuts, you’ll know that I’ve had quite a few in recent years in my quest to find the best pineapple doughnut around.
It actually had me reminiscing about the pineapple doughnut days of old.
The dough was good – it was dense but still light. This is despite the fact that, being a petrol station doughnut, it had probably been frozen and ‘thawed for my convenience’.
The glazing was reminiscent of the old Pineapple Doughnuts. It was flakey and had a fairly good pineapple flavour.
The doughnuts were not branded, so I have no idea who made them.
But if you’re searching for that pineapple doughnut experience of old, try one from a BP petrol station – just make sure you get a bright yellow one.
