In honor of the upcoming World Cup, Krispy Kreme Japan has released a line of donuts celebrating six competing countries.
The themed half dozen features a different flavor for each country represented and are only available in the assortment, except for Japan’s Green Tea Cake which is a regular on Krispy Kreme Japan’s menu.
Brand Eating describes the new donuts in detail:
Brazil, Mango Passion: A yeast shell donut with a mango and passion fruit filling inside topped with a mango-flavored icing and a squiggle of white chocolate.
France, Creme Brûlée: Glazed Original topped with a custard creme, dark caramel sauce, and crispy bits of caramelized candy.
Italy, Tiramisu: a yeast shell donut with a mascarpone creme filling, topped with a zig-zaging pattern of coffee icing and a dusting of cocoa powder.
UK, Peach Melba: a yeast ring donut glazed with a pink peach-flavored icing, and finished with raspberry sauce, sliced roasted almonds, and dried cranberries.
US, Lemon Cheesecake: a yeast shell donut with a vanilla cream cheese filling, topped with a lemon creme and crushed graham crackers.
Japan, Matcha Old Fashioned: It’s an old-fashioned donut made with match (powdered green tea) and iced with green tea white chocolate.
All the flavors seem to represent their countries well, except for the US. Really Krispy Kreme? Lemon Cheesecake is the best you could come up with that screamed U.S.A.? Why not the Dutch Apple Pie you released a month ago?
The donuts will be sold in a six-pack featuring the entire assortment for 1340 yen ($13.16 US) or you can get a dozen with two of each donut for 2000 yen ($19.64 US). These limited time donuts are only available until July 14.
