Krispy Kreme Japan have become known for their themed treats, from New Year to Easter, they bring us limited-time only doughnuts that can satisfy our cravings for seasonally appropriate goods. In Japan, you’re likely to see the cuter side of Halloween rather than genuine frights and gore, and for this year’s spooky offering, the doughnut chain have also taken that route, going for a nice, inoffensive harvest theme.
This upcoming line of doughnuts is called "Monster Harvest" and it includes four Halloween themed items.
The harvest imagery would be incomplete without a pumpkin, so Krispy Kreme are once again rolling out the Pumpkin Custard Jack. But they claim that this year’s is even more delicious due to the generous helping of pumpkin custard inside. The pumpkin’s face is made from pumpkin flavoured chocolate and there’s a single pumpkin seed on top to create the stem.
The theme continues with the Apple Caramel Monster. It’s a Halloween harvest, so naturally, it’s not a normal apple. The caramel chocolate and apple doughnut has just one eye and a cheeky expression. The glaze is made using apples from Aomori prefecture. How seasonal!
Sometimes, at a harvest, there might be a cat. There might be. The next doughnut is called Black Cat Marron. This feline face shaped treat has features made from white chocolate and is full of chestnut flavored cream. There’s also poppy seeds as extra decoration.
Back to basics, the Halloween Sprinkle is a pudding flavored chocolate covered ring doughnut with "Halloween colored" sprinkles on top.
If you get the Halloween Dozen or Halloween Dozen Half set, the doughnuts come in seasonally apt boxes which make them perfect to bring to a Halloween party.
The Monster Harvest doughnuts will be available from Sept 11 and Halloween itself is the last day you can grab them.
