According to Krispy Kreme Japan, doughnuts and soccer are a match made in heaven.
Just in time to give all of Japan a massive sugar rush before the 2014 FIFA World Cup starts on June 12th, KKJ has introduced their special “World Dolce Cup” doughnuts. Each of the six doughnuts represents a country competing in the World Cup—well, except the U.K. one (it’s England competing, not the entire U.K.).
Here are the doughnut details:
Japan: Green Tea Cake ¥190 ($1.86)
Old-fashioned donut made with matcha green tea powder and iced with green tea white chocolate
US: Lemon Cheesecake ¥230 ($2.26)
Yeast shell donut with vanilla cream cheese filling, topped with lemon creme and crushed graham crackers
UK: Peach Melba ¥230 ($2.26)
Yeast ring donut glazed with peach-flavored icing, drizzled with raspberry sauce, and sprinkled with sliced roasted almonds and dried cranberries
Italy: Tiramisu ¥230 ($2.26)
Yeast shell donut with mascarpone filling, topped with coffee icing and dusted with cocoa powder
France: Crème Brûlée ¥230 ($2.26)
Glazed Original donut topped with custard creme and dark caramel sauce, then sprinkled with bits of caramelized candy
Brazil: Mango Passion ¥230 ($2.26)
Yeast shell donut with mango and passion fruit filling, topped with mango-flavored icing and a white chocolate icing
The Matcha donut is a regular part of Krispy Kreme Japan’s menu, but all others are only available until July 14th. A six-pack will set you back ¥1340 ($13.14), while a dozen is only ¥2000 ($19.62).
We think the choice is pretty obvious.
