The lineup of the five products ranges from the early days of the Japanese market to the most recent ones in the 2020s. This is a great chance to enjoy your favorite flavors and limited edition donuts that you missed out on.
Chocolate Glazed, launched in 2007, is a doughnut with smooth chocolate icing on the fluffy, moist dough of the classic Original Glazed. It can be eaten as is, or heated for 8 seconds. for 8 seconds to enjoy a richer, deeper flavor.

Sweet America Oreo Vanilla Cream Chocolate
The Sweet America Oreo Vanilla Cream Chocolate, introduced in 2018, is, as the name suggests, a “dream donut” with a whole Oreo Bits Sandwich Vanilla, a popular American snack. The moist dough blended with original cocoa goes perfectly with the chocolate ring, and with each bite, the bittersweet and gentle sweetness spreads throughout your mouth.

Earl Grey Milk Tea Cake
For tea lovers, I recommend the Earl Grey Milk Tea Cake, which has Earl Grey tea leaves kneaded into the dough. The Old Fashioned Doughnut, which spreads the luxurious aroma of tea leaves in just one bite, captivated many fans when it was released in 2014. The crunchy texture of the graham cookie wrapped in milk tea chocolate is also an addictive taste.

Lotus Biscoff White Cream
Many of you may remember the Lotus Biscoff White Cream doughnut, which was released in 2020 and is decorated with a whole Lotus Biscoff, a popular Belgian cookie. The subtle sweetness of the caramel and the aroma of cinnamon intertwine to create a dish that is perfect for tea time when you want to take a breather. Try it again for the rich taste of white chocolate on top.

Fondant Chocolat Heart
The last one is the “Fondant Chocolat Heart,” a heart-shaped donut released in 2019 that has gained popularity for its taste like “fondant chocolate. The dough is filled with a slightly bitter chocolate cream that, when warmed, overflows with luxurious flavor. The top surface is decorated with candied walnuts and pistachios, which add a delightful textural accent.
