I’ve always been intrigued by Cartems’s donuts, since its pop-up days. I like the various types of donut, their different texture and the featuring of seasonal flavours.

For the Christmas season, they introduced a few new flavours and on this one day where I was craving some donuts, I picked up half a dozen Cartems donuts.

Candy Cane – Suggested by the name, I was expecting mint flavour in this donut; instead, the sweetness from the jam-like red stripes was the most prominent. It’s subtle and there’s nothing extravagant, but I quite enjoyed the simplicity of this.

Inside the Vancouver Christmas Market

Grab yourself a souvenir mug and a cup of hot apple cider for the kids, or mulled wine for the adults. The aroma and flavours of cloves, star anise and cinnamon have holidays written all over the mug — and it keeps you warm on a cold chilly day/night!
