Poison Coffee & Doughnuts introduces familiar doughnut flavors


When we reminisce about our childhoods, we often associate it with food, especially snacks or candies that we liked as kids.

If you’re craving for doughnuts and Pinoy childhood sweets, check out the local doughnut brand, Poison Coffee & Doughnuts, in Makati City. On 11th February 2022, they introduced an addition to their doughnut flavors, A Dose of Nostalgia, inspired by Pinoy candies from Potchi to Hawhaw that’ll bring out the child in you.
