Jelly Modern Donuts is no ordinary donut shop with creative treats known to local sweet lovers like the infamous maple bacon donut. And now its no stranger to the Yelp Calgary Elite Squad either! On Wednesday eve, Elites in Calgary were treated to a first-hand VIP experience of vanilla frosting proportions!
Event highlights included donut dipping demos, cocktails made with Magic
Moments Lemongrass Ginger Vodka courtesy of Distiller's Pride and 8
different reasons to increase our sugar high with a candy buffet from
"And then there were like blue whales and there was a lady there making cocktails, and oh! oh! There was a blow torch and like LOTS of stickers… Am I describing an awesome dream as a result of too much pizza before bed, or am I describing the coolest elite party ever!" exclaims Meghan H.
Let's not forget the donut dipping stations. Elites had the choice of creating 2 their very own versions of either the maple bacon, smore, classic jelly or madagascar vanilla donut. Donut holes were punched, donuts were dipped, toppings were sprinkled and marshmallows were blowtorched – yes, blowtorched! In the end, each person had a goodie box to take home with them. Let's be real though, if the donuts made it past the front door, they most certainly didn't last the ride home!
Jennifer L: "I chose maple bacon and carrot donut dip
and toppings…I seriously piled that stuff on. Glaze? Sure! Maple
syrup? Mmmhm! Bacon? Double dose please! It was fantastic. Same with
the carrot donut. I squirt the cream cheese around the donut as well
as, filled the donut hole then piled the carrot chips on top."
Between each dip, guests sipped on the feature cocktail, the Oriental Ale, from Distiller's Pride. Care to make it at home? Try the recipe!
