Seasonal flavors are a big thing in Japan. Like, really big. You can find so many takes on seasonal flavors that are expressed through Japanese candy and Japanese snacks, similar to fun character snacks! Here at TokyoTreat, we always try to put as many of these Japanese treats into your Japanese candy box, but sometimes we come across foods that we just need to let our TokyoTreat family know about even if we can't fit them into your treat box! A great example of this are these amazing matcha donuts that Japanese donut chain Mister Donuts has recently announced! Let's check them out!
This first Japanese snack is a scrumptious matcha chocolate dipped donut. With the chocolate coating on the outside of this cream puff pastry donut, the inside is filled with a whipped cream and azuki (red bean) filling. This sounds like a totally sweet donut that we'd love to chow down on!
This second Japanese treat is a yeast sugar covered donut that is filled with yummy delights! Inside you can find a ring of azuki that contains another ring of matcha whipped cream and a mochi ball! This mix of traditional Japanese flavors and western donuts is a sight to behold!
The third donut here is another yeast based donut. This time, the ring of whipped matcha cream takes the lead with the biggest ring. Inside this ring is azuki and a kinako, or roasted soy bean powder, molasses mochi square! This is definitely a sweet and savory donut.
The final new donut that is part of this special lineup is another cream puff pasty donut filled with matcha whipped cream and azuki bean. What separates this donut from the others is the kinako chocolate covering that this was dipped in! Just yum!
Do you wish we could stick this into your Japan box too? If we could ship these in your treat box, which flavor would you choose? Let us know in the comments below.
