This time the doughnut chain will be bringing back a popular release from last year, upgrading their sweet potato doughnuts with some new flavors.
On top of the dough used in the original doughnuts, which was made from anno imo, an orange sweet potato from Kagoshima with a particularly sweet honey-like flavor, the doughnuts also contain beni haruka imo powder, which comes from a sweet potato with purple-red skin and a higher sugar content. Each of the five doughnuts in the lineup presents a different way to enjoy Japanese sweet potatoes.

"University Potatoes" (daigaku imo) are candied sweet potatoes, and take their name from being a popular snack with University students looking to save money but get a calorie-dense snack to help them power through the day. This doughnut has a sweet saucy glaze and sesame seed topping, much like the snack it's based on.
Topped with sweet potato cream and sesame seeds.
Imo kenpi are fried strips of sweet potato coated with sugar, so this doughnut is coated with glaze and then broken up pieces of imo kenpi.
The doughnuts will be available at Mister Donut in Japan from until the middle of November.
