Tim Horton's Chocolate White Coconut Donut

For some reason, they don't make this donut anymore, or at least not very often. I once spent a couple of hours going from store to store when I had a craving to have one of these. No luck. Later, I talked to this fellow who owns one of the franchises, and he explained that it's likely that I couldn't find them, because, at least in the case of his store, he was tired of making them and throwing them out at the end of the day. The odd time I was in a Tim Horton's after that, they didn't have any. Until today. My Dad suggested going to Tim Horton's, to have lunch there. We normally make a dinner every Sunday, but, for today, we went out. We wouldn't have to clean up afterwards, he said. I agreed, not holding any hope in getting one of those donuts I had not tasted for about a year and a half. I don't spend a lot of time in donut stores, just occasionally I get a craving for a donut, and usually one of these Chocolate White Coconuts. It's basically a chocolate cake donut with an icing sugar coconut coating. I think the combination is excellent. Makes me want to create some sort of cake like it. I looked over the selection of available donuts as I waited for my father to make his order. And there, on the bottom row, in the back, stood four Chocolate White Coconuts. Chocolate Whites for short. Well, I quickly ordered two of them, before someone came in and stole them away from in the last seconds. Really, it's been that long. And how where they? Awesome! So, I still have that idea for a cake in the back of my mind, chocolate cake in a ring, covered with white icing and coconut. Should be good.
