    I often pass by J.Co ATC branch to buy doughnuts since most of the time the queue is not that long. Sometimes they are closing the line because they still need to wait to restock, this happened to me thrice already and sometimes its annoying.

    I've always wondered why lots of people line up just to get J Co donuts so one time, I lined up for 1 HOUR just to check if it was worth it. Well, I like it some of their donuts, but I don't think it is really worth my time. I'd rather buy in Krispy Kreme and wait for only a few minutes.

    lines are still super long even up to this point of the calendar year. pinoys just love sweets hence diabetes as we all know. they are good yes, probably a bit better than kk but having to line up at least an hour or 2 of your precious time is not worth it.

    I like J.Co because their donuts are not that sweet compared to others.

    I bought some boxes at their Eastwood branch, and I think their payment system is the bottleneck.

    Sooo over-rated.

    We passed by their place in Eastwood around 5am on a Friday and there's already a small line inside.

    Geez...

    Not really a fan though, but my wife is. Do they accept credit card payments?

    Their donuts are OK, but I wouldn't buy them if I have to wait for an hour. My favorite is Blueberry More. I still find myself craving for Dunkin Donuts' Choco Butternut though. :)

    What Apples said! I still prefer a fresh batch of Dunkin Donuts over J. Co donuts any day of the week!

    I agree J Co Donuts are less sweeter than Krispy Kreme and Go Nuts

    I always choose not to choose the donuts para the lines are shorter.

    Totally prefer Dunkin donuts over J.CO, well my girlfriend really likes the alcapone (J.CO) no choice but to wait inline :eek:

    Did you know that you can call J.Co and pick it up on the next day?
    that's what I do when my girlfriend is craving for alcapone I don't know if they still offer this

    The line at J.Co Megamall yesterday evening was CRAZY! They even had a queue outside to add to that snaking line inside the store. It seems that a lot have thought of bringing donuts to their Lenten destination. In other news, the nearby Krispy Kreme branch was out of donuts.

    just bought earlier at TRINOMA no line strange!!!!!!!! went straight to their Express Lane for assorted donuts.

    bought 2 dozen for cheaper sales. @550 for that instead of 350 for 1 dozen.

    Their Coco Loco and Al Capone donuts are great! I don't like the other flavors as much. On a side note: Krispy Creme's glazed donuts are much better than J.Co.
