Mister Donut Meets MOCHICREAM - Doughnuts With A Japanese Twist
MOCHICREAM combines Japanese daifuku with popular desserts such as cakes and pudding. In July 2020, only for a limited time, they have paired up with Mister Donut to release mochi covered and filled doughnuts.
On Friday, June 3, 2020, Mister Donut released their new "misdo meets MOCHICREAM" collaboration. This special series combines the fluffy and rich texture of doughnuts with chewy mochi.
MOCHICREAM is a unique dessert chain in Japan which transforms popular desserts such as strawberry shortcake with traditional Japanese flavors and ingredients, like mochi. They do have independent shops but also often collaborate with supermarkets, convenience stores or even other food chains.
The star of the collection is the Daifuku Donut. The Strawberry Daifuku Doughnut is a chewy pastry topped with whipped cream and strawberry jam, wrapped in soft mochi. It retails for 220 yen excluding tax.
Daifuku Doughnut Lemon is a glutinous pastry topped with whipped cream and lemon jelly, wrapped in a milky mochi sheet. It is also priced at 220 yen excluding tax.
The Lemon MOCHICREAM French Cruller (160 yen excluding tax) offers a mochi and lemon jelly filling sandwiched inside a French cruller. It is topped with white chocolate and sparkling sugar.
The Pon de MOCHICREAM (160 yen excluding tax) comes with a mochi and whipped cream filling. It is glazed and topped with the same sparkling sugar as the Lemon MOCHICREAM French Cruller.
The Pon de Strawberry MOCHICREAM has the same concept as the plain Pon de MOCHICREAM, but instead of whipped cream, it has strawberry jam and mochi as filling. It is topped with strawberry and white chocolate and retails for 160 yen excluding tax.
The Adzuki Bean Mochi Puff is a chewy puff pastry doughnut topped with white chocolate and mochi and Hokkaido azuki bean paste filling. It is also topped with azuki beans and retails for 160 yen plus tax.
The mochi filling for these doughnuts is provided by MochiCream Japan, Inc., and the collection will be sold until early August 2020 or until sold out.
