  • Well, hey, welcome to this English lesson about food.

  • I'm here with Brent.

  • Hi, Brent.

  • Hello.

  • Brent's taking me around Maine today, around Lewiston, Maine, and he's going to treat me.

  • Well, I don't know, are you buying the food?

  • I'll probably buy most of it, yeah.

  • He might be treating me to food, or I'll buy some of it as well, and then as I taste it, I'll try to think of all the English words and phrases I would use to describe that food, so I'm looking forward to it.

  • Me too.

  • The only thing I'm worried about is that Bob is gonna like the food so much, you're not gonna wanna leave.

  • Yeah, I might end up staying here, but we'll see, you never know.

  • It might be yummy, maybe not.

  • Okay, so we're here at The Holy Donut.

  • Brent has just gone in to make sure it's okay for us to come in with our cameras.

  • Hopefully they say yes.

  • If not, maybe we'll have to be a little bit sneaky about it, but I'm sure they'll say yes to a Canadian visiting coming to buy their donuts.

  • I'm sure they'll be fine with it.

  • We'll see.

  • Chocolate sea salt.

  • Chocolate sea salt, yes.

  • Maple bacon.

  • Maple bacon.

  • And then what's your best blueberry?

  • Ooh, personally, in my opinion, the blueberry lemon.

  • Oh, blueberry with lemon.

  • What does that look like?

  • Where is that?

  • That is this one right here.

  • Oh yeah, that looks good.

  • Yeah, we'll do that.

  • Not the cannoli?

  • The cannoli is also absolutely delicious, but I actually really like the lemon.

  • Let's do four.

  • Okay.

  • Four, and then the blueberry cannoli?

  • Yeah, let's do that.

  • Awesome.

  • Because Brent's paying.

  • Yeah.

  • All right, so we have a sea salt, a lemon, a blueberry holey cannoli, and there was one other one.

  • What was that one?

  • Maple bacon and blueberry lemon.

  • Maple bacon, that's the one that I'm missing here.

  • All right, anything to drink today?

  • No, I'm fine.

  • Then the total will still be $17.55.

  • Okay, I can pay.

  • You want me to pay?

  • I got it.

  • There's a chocolate.

  • Then my screen's just going to ask you if you'd like to leave a tip, and then it'll ask if you want a receipt.

  • So, we're not gonna eat all of them.

  • We're gonna try parts of each of them.

  • I had a knife.

  • Yes.

  • Okay, so I think half's too much.

  • Yeah, it is.

  • So, let's try chocolate.

  • Let's try a quarter, maybe.

  • There we go.

  • I'm just gonna grab.

  • I'm gonna eat before you're eating.

  • Do it.

  • This is probably my favorite donut that they sell here.

  • That is a deep, rich chocolate flavor.

  • That is yummy.

  • Yeah, you were right.

  • I do like them.

  • Do you taste the potato in them?

  • I don't, actually.

  • It tastes like, like if I bought this at home, it would be an expensive donut.

  • It tastes very, very good.

  • And it's kind of a traditional donut.

  • It's made the old-fashioned way.

  • It's probably deep fried in oil.

  • It's very soft, I think.

  • Almost a little warm still.

  • So, I don't know how long ago this was baked, but my favorite.

  • I like salt.

  • So, do you like salt as well?

  • I do.

  • Two thumbs up, but I have to try the other ones yet.

  • I feel bad, but I'm already rating this one as my favorite without trying the other ones, so.

  • So, I can't imagine how many calories are in the middle of this donut.

  • When we cut it, though, we gotta get a little bit of the cream.

  • This is gonna be messy.

  • Luckily, they have a washroom here, as you would say in Canada, right?

  • You can wash up afterwards.

  • Once again, I'm gonna dive right in.

  • Do you know that?

  • I'm gonna dive in.

  • That means I'm gonna go and take a piece right away.

  • Good phrasing right there.

  • Uh-oh.

  • I got a little bit of it.

  • And I don't know about you, but I hate eating on camera.

  • It's good.

  • I like the chocolate better.

  • The whipped cream tastes very fresh.

  • Like, it feels like it's authentic whipped cream.

  • Sometimes in Canada and the United States, you have things that are kind of fake.

  • That tastes like real whipped cream.

  • Real blueberries, definitely.

  • Oh, that is good.

  • Yeah.

  • I'm gonna take another one.

  • Yeah, it's growing on me.

  • That's a good phrase, too.

  • It means I'm starting to like it more and more.

  • I'm not sure about this one.

  • A donut with bacon seems a little strange to me.

  • Usually donuts are very sweet.

  • And this is gonna add a salty, savory element to the donut.

  • Is it maple bacon?

  • It is.

  • Now, bacon and maple go well together.

  • I'm gonna smell it first.

  • Oh yeah, you can smell the maple.

  • You can definitely smell the bacon.

  • I'm gonna use the English phrase, that's a no for me.

  • No, really?

  • When you say something is a no for you, it means you don't like it.

  • I like it enough that I'll finish my piece, but I wouldn't buy this.

  • It's a great donut.

  • They've done a great job.

  • I just personally, no.

  • Is it too sweet?

  • Or is it the combination of flavors?

  • It's the bacon with the sugar.

  • Oh, okay.

  • Yeah.

  • That's unfortunate.

  • I like that one.

  • Okay, what's this last one?

  • I believe it's the blueberry lemon.

  • Blueberry lemon.

  • So two flavors together.

  • And I'm sure it's the same in Canada.

  • We say blueberry pairs well with lemon.

  • You'll see that in cakes and stuff.

  • Yeah.

  • I don't think I've ever had this one.

  • You can actually see the blueberry inside this one.

  • So, has a nice blue look.

  • Mm.

  • The hint of lemon is quite strong.

  • I wouldn't actually use the phrase hint of lemon.

  • It's quite lemony.

  • So, hmm.

  • More lemony than blueberry, I think.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay, I'm gonna rank them.

  • Okay.

  • Chocolate sea salt, number one for me.

  • Blueberry cannoli, number two.

  • Blueberry lemon, number three.

  • But a distant third.

  • Like it's one, two, and then there's a big gap for Bob.

  • And then blueberry lemon.

  • And then the bacon one is, I guess it's number four by default, but would not be buying it again.

  • What about you?

  • I think we line up, no, no.

  • We don't line up exactly.

  • So we don't exactly agree.

  • But chocolate sea salt, number one.

  • Number one.

  • Blueberry, probably number three.

  • Oh.

  • The maple bacon's probably my second.

  • Okay.

  • Yours would be fourth, but not distant.

  • Like I kinda like them all.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Well, thanks for the donuts.

  • Of course.

  • We're done here at the donut shop and we're gonna hit the road.
