Found at a Beta store off Chuy Ave in Bishkek. So delicious.

They’re not my favorite, but my kids love to walk to the other Beta Stores to pick these up. We’ve all been pleasantly surprised by how much more is available in Bishkek than there was 6 years ago.

The question is, how are their orange/vanilla Coolattas?

en sevdiğim yiyeceklerden biriydi eskiden dunutslar. Ama kalori olayı yüzünden çok fazla tüketmiyorum artık.

There’s a Domino Donuts in Kazakhstan that looks the same as well. They’ve been there a few years; I took this photo of one of their locations in December 2008.

In Beta Store 2 (near Orto Sai Bazar on Karl Marx Street) there also is a “King Burger”. I haven’t tried it yet 😉

Love to know how much they are and the shop’s clientele 🙂
