Krispy Kreme’s New Premium Donuts Will Give You Life (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

Good news, doughnut lovers! If you’re totally over the (admittedly delicious) standard glazed doughnut at Krispy Kreme, but still want to satisfy your sweet tooth and dessert cravings, the chain has stepped up its game and is debuting a slew of decadent new doughnuts!

Krispy Kreme Japan has launched a new premium line of doughnuts and these babies are gunning to whet the appetite of foodies everywhere.

The chain has come up with four luxurious new flavors, which are being referred to as “miniature cakes” and are available just in time for Easter.

The Krispy Kreme Premium Brulee Glazed Cream features a whipped custard cream that is sandwiched between a sliced doughnut covered with a brulee glaze. The doughnut is also caramelized with a light coat of the custard.


Next up is the Premium Latte Bunny, which is a doughnut chock full of thick latte-flavored milk cream frosting. Because Krispy Kreme Japan is super cute, it also comes adorned with a pair of biscuit ears and a dash of roasted almond flakes sprinkled on top.

The Premium Matcha Adzuki is sure to appeal to green tea fans everywhere — think whipped cream infused with green tea and a sweet adzuki red bean paste filling. Next comes the matcha green tea glaze topping, as well as a fancy gold powder dusted on top of the doughnut.

Finally there’s the Premium Sakura, which has a sweet-sour flavor and is supposed to represent the cherry blossom season. You’ll find a tart cherry paste along with a strawberry-raspberry-cranberry puree on the inside, all topped with whipped cream. Finally, the doughnut gets coated with a pink cherry icing glaze.

Enjoy The $150 Patron Platinum Donut, This Week Only! (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

Available for a limited time only, those who live near New York City and have a significant amount of disposable income can enjoy the $150 Patron Platinum Donut.

Bjorn DelaCruz, executive chef and co-owner of Manila Social Club in Brooklyn, New York, decided to up the ante with this luxury treat.

In January, DelaCruz created the Golden Ube Cristal Donut, a $100 dessert filled with a champagne jelly and an ube mousse and topped with Cristal champagne icing and edible 24-karat gold.

From May 2 to May 8, the Patron Platinum Donut will be available to enjoy in the Brooklyn location.

Inspired by Patron’s margarita of the year, the Rosa Picante, this decadent treat consists of a rose-petal doughnut filled with cream and a ginger-jalapeno margarita jelly. Covered in a sweet tequila frosting and topped with sheets of edible silver and platinum, this pricey dessert is absolutely breathtaking.

“It’s not like any other doughnut you’ve ever had before,” DelaCruz told Business Insider. He explained that this treat is not a “margarita doughnut,” but rather a unique flavor experience consisting of the deconstructed flavors of a margarita.

Inside, similar to the other doughnuts made by the restaurant, is a dark purple dough with light purple mousse. Manila Social Club is known for their doughnuts made with ube jam, which comes from purple yams used in Filipino desserts.

The lucky taste-testers at Business Insider described this treat as having “a very light rose taste with lingering hints of jalapeno spice and the subtle tang of tequila.”

The proceeds from this “fragrant” dessert with a “sweet finish” are being donated to the American Cancer Society.

If you live near the restaurant and can genuinely contemplate purchasing such a decadent treat, head to Manila Social Club by May 8.
