Mister Donut


#241

The ropey glazed ones taste like wax and the old fashioned dry ones taste like week old cake.


#242

It would seem @Brianjones and I are alone in our appreciation for Mister Donut.


#243

You two and all of Japan.

“They have them at 711 next to my house now.”

Mr. Donut is President Chain store (7-11), so they have the money to be in every MRT station.

These are glazed chocolate donuts, chocolate glazed donuts have a chocolate glaze.


#246

I like the old fashioned


#247

ok, Kemosabe


#248

Suffice it to say that Mister Donut is for people who don’t actually like donuts.


#249

It’s the ukulele of donut shops

Does Dunkin Donuts still exist in Taiwan? I thought they closed all Taiwan shops in 2013.


#251

I’ve never seen a DD here. Just Mister D and KK.


#252

I wonder how long KK will last in Taiwan. They made a huge high profile entrance into the Hong Kong market some 10+ years ago and closed it all down about 3-4 years later. Mister D seems the most well entrenched one in Taiwan.


#253

They’ve done a masterful job of accommodating local tastes.


#254

Which is exactly why they’re so lame.


#255

Lame, but entrenched lame


#256

Hey, an ukulele is a fine instrument, a little small but fine.


#257

Japan is close enough. If it’s in Japan, Taiwanese tourists will be awed about it and than they love it here too, same like all the Korean stuff.


#258

That’s what she said.


#259

i buy mister donut more often than krispy kreme. they are both good but KK is more indulgent.
taiwanese definitely prefer mister donut.

Can’t eat them. Look too much like anal beads. And now you won’t be able to unsee it. You’re welcome.
