Sweet Potato Donuts at Mister Donuts

Plain (¥129)
All of the sweet potato donuts start with a dough that incorporates annouimo (a special type of sweet potato popular for its sweetness and golden orange color) powder. The plain showcases the mildly sweet flavor and moist texture that is supposed to emulate a real roasted sweet potato.
Murasaki Imo (Purple Sweet Potato) (¥140)
The murasaki imo flavor adds a purple glaze and black sesame seeds that mimic the appearance of a purple sweet potato.
Daigaku Imo (University Sweet Potato) (¥140)
This donut recreates the popular street snack called daigaku imo, and features a clear glaze and black sesame seeds.
Suitopoteto (¥140)
This donut recreates the flavor and texture of 'suitopoteto' (another popular sweet potato-based sweet) with a topping of kinako sugar.
Kuromitsu Kinako (Brown Sugar Syrup and Toasted Soybean Powder) (¥140)
This donut features a classic combination of ingredients common to 'wagashi' (traditional Japanese sweets). The donut is soaked in kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) and coated with kinako (toasted soybean powder).

The Donuts are Available Until the End of October!

These donut flavors are definitely unique to Japan, and can't be found anywhere else! If you get the chance to stop by a Mister Donut during September or October, don't miss it!
