Krispy Kreme Japan unveils new doughnuts filled with…cheese?

By Oona McGee, SoraNews24

Krispy Kreme has changed its strategy in Japan in recent years, focussing more on sweet releases that appeal to local tastes, and judging by this latest release, local customers love cheese.

The new lineup coming to stores is called “Cheerful Cheese!” and as the name suggests, cheese is the main ingredient. They’re not going totally left-field with the lineup, though, because the inspiration behind the new menu items are familiar favorites from the world of sweets, and there are three to choose from.

▼ Lemon Rare Cheesecake


This sweet treat is said to be perfect for early summer, with its cream cheese filling and a sweet yet tart lemon nappage (glaze) creating a refreshing flavour combination. The doughnut is finished with cheese-flavored decorative lines and a mound of pistachios for an accent in colour and texture.

▼ Tiramisu Cream


This is like a tiramisu that’s been turned into a doughnut, with mascarpone cream on the inside and a rich cheese-flavored coating on the outside, finished with espresso-flavored coffee sauce and an original blend of cocoa powder.

▼ Cheese Tart


Designed to look and taste like a cheese tart, this doughnut fills its hole with a cream containing Gouda cheese, and surrounds it with crushed cookie pieces atop a cheese-flavored coating.

The new doughnuts are priced at 334 yen for takeout or 341 yen for dine-in customers, and will be on the menu from May 29 to mid-July. Those wanting to try them all can purchase the Cheerful Cheese Box for 972 yen, which gets you all three doughnuts, or the Half Dozen for 1,576 yen, which gets you six.

As an absolutely die-hard fan of cheese Danish, I would have to say these look really good. And cheese is a more adaptable food that a lot of people realize. But I will restrain myself with my incredible will power and eat only one each of these, with half a dozen to go.

Cheese is healthier than sugar. That's the killer.
