Rare Cheese Cake is decorated with grape pieces from France, and is topped with a lemon sauce.

The Coffee Beans doughnut is topped with espresso beans and has coffee milk cream filling.

The Soy Milk Cake is an original old-fashioned Krispy Kreme doughnut made with soy milk.

Each doughnut costs 180 yen.

Yeah, they overexpanded and had some kangaroo accounting going back then. Their donuts were always good, though.

that is pretty sad that you can buy a share of stock for what a donut and a drink costs....excellent donuts though it is not due to taste that the stock has fallen

I am still amazed that people stand in line for these donuts. I mean, your basic super market donuts in the US is as good, if not sometimes better, than the insanely sweet KKDs.

I miss Winchells and Dunkins. No line, great tasting donuts and no foolish hype.

If you notice someone knocking on the window of the KKD Funabashi Lalaport Store at 2am in the morning, don't worry it's just me being a desperate donut whore.

Its funny, when KK came into Japan, it was headed into its' twilight in the US. Now it seems to be pretty popular in ol' Nippon, whereas the US has swung decidedly back towards Dunkin Donuts.

I don't like their donuts - way too sweet! I support my local donut shop which make delicious fresh donuts on site each morning!

I like just the original ones. I don't need all these fancy different flavours.

I never tried KKD, the lines always look too long.

motogaijin, I think that has happened several times before. I believe 7-11 Japan is doing much better than the original 7-11. Mister Donuts is big in Japan, but I believe gone from the States. Also can't forget Tower Records. But there are many examples of chains that didn't make it here too. Just down to who has better management I guess. Wish they would open a Krispy Kreme in Hiroshima, but that's like wishing for a burger King in Hiroshima. There was a BK here, when they originally came to Japan. There was a Taco Time too...

All well and good but no donut is worth waiting in line for over an hour, which happens every week in shinjuku and will be longer now that there is something atarashi!

Please keep the jelly donuts. Please please please. Don't make donuts healthy. If i want healthy I would eat a granola bar. or fiber snack

Go to the one in Kawasaki and you don't have to wait long usually. I think the one at Yurakucho has short lines too.

Don't see what the big deal is. Way too sweet and not worth the wait. Mr Donuts is much better.

Fellow readers, be kind to your pancreas and eat a few cherry tomatoes.

I only eat doughnuts when I need to expel bad things in my intestines. They are just grease cakes.

Ewww. I just gained 50 pounds from that picture alone!

I wonder if they'll ever 'localize' the donuts and introduce less sweet versions to cater to traditional Japanese palates. Personally I find them a tad sweet for my liking.

Though, with the long lines I'm seeing in the Shinjuku shop it seems like the locals don't mind them as they are.

Can anyone say Type 2 diabetes.

KKs honey-glazed donuts are all you need...forget these new super sweet piles of glop

These things are nice but really are like a sugar shot! This will fatten up those skinny little Japanese women!

"Mr Donuts is much better"

Not to mention much cheaper! Regular price for their donuts is around 135 yen, and they often have 100 yen days.

No wonder meta-bol is becoming a problem in Japan, but I'll let other people worry about that ;)

But, are these donuts really that good? I had a couple my wife bought for me, and I thought better her than me lining up for 45 minutes just to get them. I'll look for something more suited to my sophisticated palate.

So Japan's Krispy Kreme donuts are as sweet as the American version? I was thinking that they might have adjusted the ingredients to suit the taste preferences of the Japanese people (as you know many chains will do when operating overseas). Those in Japan generally do not heavily sweeten foods like they do in America, so I'm surprised that KK is doing well there.

Actually there is a really tasty japanese relatively healthy donut brand called HARADONUTS. They have a shop in Kyoto and it has become my favourite donuts now. Many interesting flavors to choose from. Sure Krispy Kreme is delicious stuff, but i prefer Haradonuts.

i have tried the donuts in Japan and they taste very similar.

Lines are way shorter in Shibuya as the novelty has worn off.

This business seems to go well with Japanese "Just in time" efficiency, but recently their donuts are getting cold and stale.
