Mister Donut

When planning my trip to Taiwan last Fall, one place I really wanted to try was Mister Donut, a popular donut shop chain in Taiwan. One of their specialties are these super cute  bear donuts.

Apparently I didn’t have to worry about finding one because it seemed like there was a Mister Donuts chain around every corner, including many of the subway stations.

In addition the cute bear donuts they also offer donuts that look like bracelets, which are mochi donuts.

I got a vanilla and chocolate bear donut. Sometimes they have green tea but not while I was visiting.

The donuts taste lighter, almost like they are baked rather than fried. Inside the are filled with a light whipped cream too.

These were so cute. Almost too cute to eat.

I also tried a glazed mochi donut. The donut was really chewy. I liked it, but the kids and FH didn’t. They thought it tasted like the dough was still raw.

While in Taiwan, we also passed by several Dunkin Donuts. I found it ironic how hard it is for me to find a Dunkin Donuts since leaving NY, but I was able to find it in Taiwan.

I really liked the donuts as Mister Donuts. I’ll definitely get more on my next trip. Now if only they would open one here…

      Hehe, I loved them. I made sure to get them again right before I left so I was eating one on the plane.

    omg, so cute!!!!! i love how those bear donuts look! the bracelet donuts look cool too. i wonder if people really wear them? (people with skinny wrists). it seems like a mochi donut would be heavy though.

      I like bracelet shaped cookies and sweets, not sure why. Hehe, I’ve never seen anyone try to wear it but I guess it could be possible, especially with how skinny people are in Taiwan.

    OMG Mister Donut is the best :P the “mochi” donuts are my fave, I’ve been wanting to try to make my own sometime ^^”

      I’m not quite sure how to go about making it. It didnt really taste like traditional mochi, just had a mochi chewiness to it. If you make it successfully please share!

    to clarify, i meant ‘heavy’ taste-wise, not ‘heavy’ weight-wise. :)
