I’ve been waiting so long to try these!
In case you were wondering what the new 焼きキットカット (baked Kit Kats) were like, I’ve assembled a list of reviews!
The hardest part of researching and blogging about Japanese food trends from the US is not being able to eat them! Today we have a guest post about Krispy Kreme’s HARU! Doughnuts by Alice of Super Happy Awesome. You may have seen her posts on seasonal foods, especially Starbucks’, linked on the social media for…
Part 1 here. At the risk of being all doughnuts all the time lately: While Mister Donut may not be bringing back the sakura donut for 2014, Krispy Kreme is! (But only until March 31, so you’ll have to hurry!)
