Jabba the Hutt Donut
I’m a big fan of the Japanese donut chain Mister Donut. (Technically the chain started out in the US, but from what I understand the US ones have been swallowed up by Dunkin Donuts, while there are some 1300 Mister Donut stores in Japan.) I suppose it’s because their donuts have been created with Japanese tastes in mind, but I find them to be a lot lighter and tastier than donuts in the US. Plus, they always have cute products that you can earn by saving up points, so I always make a point to go to Mister Donut when I’m in Japan.
Recently they’ve been selling “Oekaki Donuts” (literally “drawing donuts”). You can get a “pen” filled with chocolate icing that you use to draw on the blank canvas of your donut. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know what my first thought was when I heard about it. I was alone when I bought this, and I think the guy at the counter was a little confused as to why a middle-aged man would be buying something like this to eat in the store, but never mind. Mine was creme-filled with caramel frosting. Delicious!
I sent these pictures to my sister in the US (also a fan of Mister Donut) to try and convince her that they had come out with a line of Jabba donuts.
