Japan 2007: MISTER DONUT!!!

Continuing on the donut theme...

Before we got to Germany and all their berliners and quarkinis, we were in Japan. And there was Mister Donut.

Sarah: OH MY GOD THERE'S A MISTER DONUT NEAR OUR HOTEL!!!

Forgive my schoolgirl excitement. The first time I went to Japan, it was as an excited 15-year old on a school trip. I fell in love with Doraemon, Japanese high school clubs, and Mister Donut.

On this trip, as a still-excited 23-year old, I took many trips down memory lane and visited misutaa donatsu many times. It's been around for ages, and is very popular in Japan. I daresay it's better than Krispy Kreme, (gasp!) and totally different from those German donuts that I love so much. Whereas the German style donuts are larger and more substantial, usually covered in a blanket of sugar, Mister Donut donuts are light, smooth, sweet pieces of fluff, that are eaten in the merest of moments.

Apple Pie. Mister Donut is not a one trick pony.
