Here on the KOB morning show we're always joking about how Antoinette has the best job in the world.
She gets to eat her way through some of the top restaurants in Albuquerque for her "Best Bites" segment.
So as an homage to her, Heather Mills got a small taste of what it feels like to be Antoinette.
KOB's own food connoisseur took you on a tour of delectable delights at Rebel Donuts.
Antoinette said, "If it's not in this case, suggest it. Maybe they'll make it for you." And Heather Mills did. "I have a suggestion. A Rolo doughnut," she said on-air.
Turns out, Antoinette was right.
Rebel Donuts came calling and posted on Heather's facebook wall.
So she got to "test out" being KOB's "taste-tester."
Heather walked into the store, "So once again, we're here at Rebel Donut. Rolo doughnut, here I come!"
She found the doughnut in the case and shrieked, "There it is right there. That's mine. The Rolo. Carmel-filled fancy."
Carrie Mettling, the owner described the doughnut like this: "It's a raised doughnut that has a depressed center that we dip in chocolate. Then we fill up that middle with caramel."
Heather asked, "Who created the Rolo doughnut?"
Mettling said, "You created the Rolo doughnut. We saw your broadcast and you mentioned it, and I said, 'I'm going to make Heather her Rolo doughnut. So we did and it's actually been a really good seller.'"
Heather explained her love of Rolo:
"Oh a huge fan. It's my favorite two things. Chocolate and caramel. Nothing is better than those two things. I just figured smash 'um together! Moment of truth."
And success! Heather's face says it all.
"Oh yeah! I'm gonna eat this whole thing!"
So this what it feels like to be Antoinette Antonio?
Mettling said, "You see Antoinette didn't get her own doughnut. Do you want us to name it after you? Heather's Rolo?"
