The Doughnutfruit Critic
We all know and love out bouncing Hasee friends Woogy and Jimmi. There they go,
flying through the air with the help of their seesaw, grabbing at the doughnutfruits
as they fly by. But what is so appealing about these simple fruits that our little
petpet pals are willing to bounce around all day just to get their hands on some?
Have Woogy and Jimmi really hit on something big? I decided to go on a tasting
spree, sampling all the different doughnutfruits and sharing my discoveries about
these mysterious fruits with the world. On to the tasting!
The Doughnutfruit - This is the most basic of doughnutfruits, the regular one.
It has a nice sweet taste to it, but is rather simple when unadorned. When plain,
I give it a 6 out of 10. A good tip when serving a regular doughnutfruit is
to serve it with a nice light vanilla glaze.
The Yellow Doughnutfruit - Moving right along, we go to another one of Woogy
and Jimmi's infamous doughnutfruits. The yellow doughnutfruit. It is by far
the most common doughnutfruit to be grabbed by the Hasee pair. It tastes very
similar to the regular doughnutfruit, yet much sweeter. When plain, it gets
a solid 8 out of 10. A fine doughnutfruit indeed, and is in need of no extra
topping. To serve, slice thinly and eat with a nice glass of red wine.
The Blue Doughnutfruit - Yet another one of our favorite doughnutfruits. This
one has a much different taste than our previous doughnutfruits. It is not as
much sweet, as it tastes like a fresh grown blueberry. Absolutely delicious.
By far my favorite doughnutfruit yet. 9 out of 10. Serving tip: Cut into bite-size
pieces, and serve in bowls with some warm, melted chocolate drizzled over the
The Green Doughnutfruit - Now this is indeed a strange doughnutfruit. Bite
right in and you'll regret it. The green doughnutfruit has a very sour lime
taste to it, and is more used as decoration than sustenance. For eating, it
gets a measly 5 out of 10. But it can be used in many delicious ways. For example,
try adding some grated green doughnutfruit to your next Greengage or Pineapple
The Purple Doughnutfruit - This is a fascinating doughnutfruit. Apparently
this doughnutfruit has a rubbery covering on the outside, to protect from the
elements when still on the tree. This makes it very difficult to prepare. But
it is worth it. The purple doughnutfruit is very sweet, but with a sour tang
to it. This is as good as the blue doughnutfruit! Another 9 out of 10. No serving
tips needed, just peel and enjoy!
The Silver Doughnutfruit - Eating this right after that delicious purple doughnutfruit
was a bit of a letdown. This doughnutfruit is very solid, almost as if it were
made of real silver. The only truly edible part is the center, which has rather
a dull flavor anyways. This doughnutfruit is not worth your Neopoints. 4 out
of 10, in my book. Serving Tip: I don't really have one, except avoid at all
The Golden Doughnutfruit - This doughnutfruit tastes infinitely better than
the silver one, but is still lacking in a little pizzazz. Yet another sweet
slice of fruit, but without the tang held by the purple doughnutfruit. I give
it a decent 7 out of 10. As for serving, serving sliced with a light strawberry
sauce is best.
The Rainbow Doughnutfruit - Amazing! Absolutely delicious! It is delightfully
sweet, but also shares the same sour tang to it as our friend the purple doughnutfruit.
A mix of all the best qualities of ever doughnutfruit. Do not balk at the price,
dear readers. I have heard it is very difficult to farm, but produces the best
doughnutfruit yet! 10 out of 10 man, 10 out of 10! No serving tips necessary!
The Chocolate Doughnutfruit - Nothing much to say here. A fine doughnutfruit,
tastes like chocolate, with the consistency of an apple. Very nice. 8 out of
10, I'll give it. Serve with plenty of ice cold Kau milk!
The Sponge Doughnutfruit - If possible, I would prefer the silver doughnutfruit
over this one! The sponge doughnutfruit has both the disturbing texture and
taste of eating a sponge. Avoid at any price necessary. 3 out of 10, if not
a 2 out of 10. I'm not giving any serving tips here; you shouldn't be eating
it in the first place!
The Icy Doughnutfruit - This doughnutfruit is alright. It is certainly an improvement
on the last one we sampled. It is rather hard on the outside, but do not be
fooled. Let it simmer briefly in some hot water. The rock hard exterior coating
will dissolve, leaving you with a fine doughnutfruit to munch on. 7 out of 10,
for its exterior leaves much to be desired. As for serving, it would do well
with any of the aforementioned sauces/toppings.
The Frosted Doughnut - Alright, even though I know it doesn't say 'doughnutfruit'
in the name, it does say doughnut, and is indeed very similar to one. It has
a nice flavor, though it can be a bit too powerful sometimes. A solid 7 out
of 10 this almost-doughnutfruit-but-not-quite earns!
Serving tips: None right now. A fine treat for a hot summer day!
The Fish Doughnutfruit - Finally, the pièce de résistance, the fish doughnutfruit!
The rarest and most expensive of all doughnutfruits, and worth every Neopoint!
It has not a trace of the fishy taste implied by both name and appearance. It
is a sweet and sour marvel, especially when cooked to perfection. A whopping
11 out of 10, if that is possible. As for serving, cut into thick slices and
bake at 300 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until a dark blue. It will look
almost like a blue doughnutfruit. Serve hot, topped with a nice caramel sauce
So, I hope my advice will be of assistance the next time you see some doughnutfruits
in the food shop! For more serving tips, see the book 'Gourmet Cooking For Your
Pet'. It has some marvelous ideas within its pages. Other doughnutfruit memorabilia
include the Rainbow Doughnutfruit Plushie, a soft toy imitation of your favorite
treat, and Woogi and Jimmy Plushie Set, more plushies, this time of your favorite
doughnutfruit-nabbing duo, the Hasee boys! If you have any question, I'm willing
