Doughnuts! Who doesn’t love doughnuts?
Last night I visited one of my favorite sweet treat stores in Calgary, Jelly Modern Doughnuts, for a Yelp Elite event. I love going to foodie events but some are in a league of their own. I must admit that I squealed in delight when I found out I was going to get to make my very own Jelly Modern doughnuts!
You are probably asking “What is the big deal? They’re doughnuts.” I guess that is true to a point but Jelly Modern is all about the quality of their product. All doughnuts are made preservative free and organic/local whenever possible. With a vast array of flavours that change daily (available in large doughnuts or in the 3 bite size), there is something for everyone. Maple bacon anyone? They even have gluten sensitive flavours available daily.
Our favorite way to enjoy Jelly Modern is to go and order one of every flavor. We then cut them up so we can try them all. Maple bacon is a huge hit at our house, lemon curd is my absolute favorite and Evan loves the S’mores doughnut with its roasted homemade marshmallow.
Last night we got to try our hand at hand dipping our own doughnuts. Each person got to choose two flavours to make and take home (or devour right there). I chose to make a maple bacon doughnut and a classic jelly doughnut. Both were divine! It was great fun to hear how to make all the different types of doughnuts and the care and attention that goes in to each one.
My favorite thing I learned last night? That Jelly Modern does parties. Yep, they do both child and adult parties. This may have changed the trajectory of Evan’s birthday this month. He would LOVE to get to make his own doughnuts. This would not be the first time we’ve celebrated with Jelly, though, because Nicole celebrated her 13th birthday with a Jelly Modern assortment.
Have I made you hungry yet? Jelly Modern is definitely worth a stop (Did you know they also won Food Network’s Donut Showdown?). Not feeling a sweet treat? They also make sandwiches served on their doughnuts (unglazed of course).
