Mister Donut’s ‘Halloween’ Treats are…Fine

I love doughnuts, and anyone who says they don’t like doughnuts can’t be trusted. Yet, we can all agree that some fried dough confections are better than others. Being careful not to start a war here, I prefer Krispy Kreme over Dunkin’ Donuts, but I will admit I’ve grown fond of the Mister Donut chain in Japan.

For one, the grease is significantly decreased, which means the sweetness doesn’t come with a side of indegestion if you eat more than one. Also, these doughnuts aren’t coated in extreme amought of sugar toppings, they usually have a good ratio of frosting to dough in comparison to other chains.

With Halloween just around the corner, the speciality season items came out recently. I decided to try a couple out for breakfast after a morning meeting

When I saw the selection on the rack, I was a bit confused. The poster (of which I forgot to take a picture, apologies) seemed to have more variety than what I saw. But then I figured out that the reason was because the doughnuts were basically the same just different sizes or different coatings.

The two I chose were the chocolate creme and pumpkin ‘monster.’ When I bit into the chocolate one, I had creme for the first couple of bites, but then it was mostly just a regular old doughnut for the rest of it. I felt kind of scammed into buying a fancier version of the regular chocolate version.

Next came the pumpkin one, which didn’t taste like pumpkin at all. To be fair, I wonder if it’s only meant to look pumpkin like and not have a pumpkin flavor? I’m not sure, but once again I felt like I just paid extra for a half glazed regular doughnut, one that just kind of tasted like sugar on bread.

All in all, they were all perfectly passable doughnuts, but I wouldn’t say I recommend them to anyone. Just but yourself a standard choco-creme doughnut or a fully glazed one and just skip these limited holiday foods. It’s not worth paying nearly double for something you can get a normal version of that’s better.

Feedback is love!
