This food article comes from 2020. In August that year, I walked past my local Mister Donut. I very rarely go there because of all its sugar-filled goodness! Yeah, I have a weight problem. But after seeing the Pokémon donuts, I couldn’t help myself.
Of course, these donuts are a collaboration between the Pokémon franchise and Mister Donut. Even though this series of donuts had appeared in other years, it was my first time to buy them. I walked out of the shop with three: Pikachu, Chansey, and a Pokéball.
I ate Pikachu first. Due to the color of the icing, I thought he might have a banana taste. He didn’t! Inside was pudding-flavored whipped custard. It tasted pretty good.
Then there was Chansey. He didn’t have a filling. In his hands was an egg that was a mini donut. It was a single segment of Mister Donut’s popular Pon de Ring donut with whipped custard inside.
The last one was the Poké Ball. It was basically a cream puff with strawberry icing. Once again, no complaints. It was a donut, after all!
Would I buy them again? The most expensive one was 259 yen, which I thought was quite pricey for a donut. And to be honest, the only difference between them and the other donuts was that these were from Pokémon. So, they looked good, but as they are only going to end up in my stomach, I can live with the cheaper stuff.
When I photographed these donuts, it made me want a macro lens. Macro lenses are usually associated with flowers and bugs. But they can help photograph food too. If I had one, it would open up a whole new world for me. Anyway, there are a couple of other Pokémon donuts available. I haven’t tried those, but let us know your thoughts if you have.
