The treats on offer at Krispy Kreme’s Japan branches are undeniably adorable, and doughnut fans are treated to a never ending rotation of seasonal offerings for events such as sakura season, Halloween and New Year. But it’s not as often that we see a character-themed offering from the doughnut chain, and this latest release is their first ever collaboration with the popular Minion series.

The lineup focuses on one of the most recognisable Minions, Bob, and his stuffed bear friend, Tim.

Bob comes in doughnut form, with a pudding-flavoured coating and chocolate features. The doughnut is filled with banana flavoured cream, in honour of the Minions’ favourite fruit (385 yen).

Tim the bear has a caramel chocolate coating, with a coffee chocolate nose and a strawberry chocolate tongue. The doughnut has a chocolate cream filling to suit his chocolatey theme (385 yen).

Bananas appear as a motif again in the banana and chocolate frozen drink, with a cute Minion design on the side of the cup (649 yen).

The themed doughnuts are also available in variously sized sets, perfect for any occasion. Apart from the character doughnuts there’s other flavours included, such as a very Minion-y blue and yellow sprinkled number. The box has a colourful and cute Minion design too.

These mischievous Minions will be on sale at branches of Krispy Kreme in Japan from 1st March until mid-May 2021.
