EDL Taste Test: Chocolat Royale vs. Hans & Rene

FOLLY: Hans & René's glazed donut is N500 while Chocolat Royal's is N300. Both are pretty expensive for a piece of fried dough according to my wallet. 

NOSA: Mr. Biggs' is like N200 so I think this is fair tbh. Hans & René might be a little too much, however.

FOLLY: Both are overwhelmingly thick, dense and doughy. The Hans & René donut is only slightly lighter than the Chocolat Royale one.

NOSA: The Chocolat Royale one had this "salty" thing to it. You know when you have too much baking soda in a baked item? Yeah, that taste.

FOLLY: Also, I should point out that we bought both donuts at about 4pm on a weekday afternoon and neither donut tasted particularly fresh.

NOSA: I'll chalk this one down to Nigerian factor. It is what it is, I guess.

FOLLY: Chocolat Royale's glaze was more consistent while Hans & René's was flakier but I think that's a storage issue for Hans & René. 

NOSA: You know something funny? I thought this would be the other way round before we bought both donuts. Thanks for surprising me, Chocolat Royale.



FOLLY: Chocolat Royale because there's no significant quality jump between the Hans & René one that justifies the additional N200. 

NOSA; Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, these two donuts are the same. Well, if you ignore the baking soda situation. Even at that, the N200 jump is not justified.
