Earlier this week, I went on a spontaneous late night donut run with my dear friend, Briana. She called me saying that she wanted to get some Duffins. I told her that I did not want to make the trip with her because I had to take care of some things. Next thing you know, she was already on her way to my house though I had said no to her. With that said, I definitely could not say go away, and for the fact that we were getting Duffins just made it harder to say no.
First of all, you might be thinking, “Duffins? What are Duffins?” Well, Duffins is a word that Briana and I made up. Duffins = Blueberry donuts that taste like blueberry muffins. These are not just your average blueberry donuts. They’re so much more than that! Right before you pick up your Duffins, you get a fresh whiff of the Duffins which gets you all excited to eat. When you first open your pizza box of donuts, the Duffins just warmly glaze at you. The first bite of the Duffin is just indescribable, especially when it’s fresh. Every time I take that first bite, I take a moment of silence because of its goodness.
There’s a perfect combination between the crispy edges and the softness of the bread itself. The sweetness of the Duffin makes you want to devour it in a second. At the same time, you simply want to enjoy every bite of it so you take your time eating it. (Side note: They remind me of the blueberry muffins from Souplantation which are really good too!)
I definitely suggest everyone to try a fresh Duffin at least once! You will not regret it! If you want to check out these Duffins, go to M&M Donuts located 10 minutes away from Disneyland. A few things to keep in mind about M&M Donuts is that they start selling the Duffins at 9PM. They don’t sell them 24/7 or at a more convenient time. Get there promptly or even a little earlier so you don’t have to wait in line all night. The wait can range from 20 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on when you get there. The later you get there, the longer the wait is. Drive-thru is a tad bit faster. Also, it can get busy there even on rainy nights! Yes, I went there with Briana on a late, rainy night… Don’t judge! We were just in the area and thought might as well pick up some Duffins 🙂 Here are some pictures of our Duffin runs:
Honestly, the pictures of the Duffins do not do justice of how good they smell and taste in real life. I must say that Briana’s smile does show how excited she is about them, Duffins!
I am blessed to have such great friends who I like to introduce you to! Meet another friend of mine, Briana! Briana and I usually like try new things every time we hang out. So you will most likely see her again here in this blog. Here’s a Q&A from her:
1. What’s your name? Briana Kim.
2. How do you know Tina? Well, she and I knew of each other since we were third graders. We grew up being frenemies saying no more than “Hi” to each other when we saw each other at church. Even when I ran into her at IHS, we said hi to each other as if we were besties, but we didn’t know each other very well. I would say that I got to know her better through small group freshmen year of college. We set aside our differences, and became accepting to the idea of becoming friends. I would say that we became closer friends our junior year of college because she would teach me how to dance professionally and I would teach her how to put on makeup professionally.
3. What do you spend most of your time doing? I spend most of my time doing the typical makeup guru things. I love to go shopping for clothes and makeup. I typically buy my clothes from GAP, J. Crew, and American Eagle and my makeup from Sephora, MAC, and CVS. After I buy stuff, I usually make videos on shopping hauls (which can be about clothes or makeup or both). If I’m feeling really lucky, I make videos on makeup tutorials. I obviously don’t have as many hits as other makeup gurus, but I wanna say that I am slowly rising on the Most Subscribed Gurus list for YouTube.
4. What are 3 random facts about yourself? Number 1: I never missed a day of school from kindergarten through 12th grade. I promise I’m not trying to brag! It’s just something that not many people can say. Number 2: I have never dyed or highlighted my hair. Again, I’m not trying to brag, but I kinda like that I can say that. I’m not against coloring my hair, but I’m just ehh about having to re-color my hurr if the roots start growing out. Number 3: I currently have an obsession with nail polishes. I got 3 nail polishes (that retail for 8-9 dollars) this month. I got the first one for 6-7 dollars, the second one for free, and the last one for 1-2 dollars. If you wanna know my secret for getting cheap nail polishes, holla!
Ok, enough about me and Briana now. Go get your Duffin! 🙂
