One of our vendors brought us a box of Champion Malasadas the other day, continuing the seemingly daily onslaught of potentially ruining my MTV music video-worthy girlish figure. lol (Does MTV even have music videos any more?) For whatever reason, normally we see Leonard’s Malasadas land on our office snack table more often than any other, and it’s been a while since I’ve had malasadas from Champion, yet I do remember them as being EXCELLENT, and this time was just as that.
The box from Champion that arrived at our office was piping hot…
which is really the only way to fully enjoy a malasada in all its glory. With that, these had that signature airy, glutenous texture on the inside….
with a slightly chewy, slighty crunchy crust, punching it all out with an evenly-dusted coating of granulated white sugar…
It also wasn’t oily ‘n greasy at all, thank goodness. In fact, it was so airy and light, you’d just as well assume they were baked, not deep-fried, as is how they’re made.
Checking out our good friends over at WOWGrinds.com, I see they already did a blind taste test back in December of last year, putting Leonard’s, Agnes’ and Champion into the ring. The results out of 7 blind taste test judges resulted with Leonard’s in 1st place, Agnes 2nd, and Champion 3rd.
Hmmm, interesting. In and by itself, Champion Malasada is a champion in my book, and worthy of a 5 SPAM Musubi rating. Until I get the other two main competitors to try side-by-side (and still piping hot) along with it, I stand by that.
Now I’m off to doing my Pilates workout watching archived Britney Spears music videos. lol
