Mister Cronuts?

While searching for information on the 2014 sakura doughnut line-up (which appears not to be happening*), I stumbled upon this announcement from Mister Donut: the cronut is coming to Japan.

A cronut, in case you missed it, is “croissant-style pastry that’s fried like a doughnut, filled with cream and topped with glaze” invented in May 2013 in New York. Misodo’s original cronut will be called the “Mr.CroissantDonut (ミスタークロワッサンドーナツ)” and will be available nationwide (some shops excluded) from April 1 through late June, 2014.

Mister Donut’s cronut is made of croissant batter, which is baked and then fried. The Croissant Donut will come in three varieties: chocolate and custard (チョコ&カスタードホイップ), with a custard filling, chocolate icing, and chocolate topping; white chocolate and caramel (ホワイトチョコ&キャラメルホイップ), with a caramel whipped filling, white-chocolate icing, and an almond topping; and maple and “angel cream” (メープル&エンゼルホイップ) with a whipped-cream filling and maple icing. Each will cost 180 yen.

If you try these, let me know if they’re any good!

*Disappointingly, the “spring flavor” seems to be strawberry instead of sakura. What is this blasphemy? There’s even a picture of a sakura on the promotion!

    Tried the caramel filled one recently, and I have to say, I wasn’t the biggest fan. It’s SO sweet, and not as flaky as I would have liked. Also, it has that distinct Mr. Donuts flavor that they all seem to have, and it just felt distracting here. Still, I’m glad they tried!
