Too much of a good thing?

Good morning everyone,

I can't believe it! It's been two days in a row without getting soaked either to or from work! It's a miracle! Ha ha! Seriously though, this has been the weirdest spring weather I've ever experienced in Hiroshima. Usually from April till rainy season is really nice weather and tomorrow will be a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid-teens both days before we see rain again and a high of only 14C on Friday (normal highs this time of year are 19C). The weekend is looking a bit better with a mostly sunny Saturday and a partly sunny Sunday and highs of 19C both days.

So, as most of you may know, I'm a fan of pretty much anything made with sugar. Ha ha! When people ask me why I run, that's always my answer-"So I can eat what I want and not worry about getting fat." Which is basically true...and no shop fulfills my need for sugar better than Mr. Donuts (only because we don't have a Kit-Kat shop in Hiroshima). Last year they came out with a mix of a donut and a croissant and it was a huge hit! They sold something like 41 million of those fusion donuts in a year-including 7 or 8 to me.

Then they created a donut and danish combination that I tried and didn't really like-I only bought one of those before reverting back to my favorite regular donut. I don't know what the sales figures were, but I'm guessing not nearly as high as the  donut/croissant combo.

But tomorrow they are releasing the next generation of fusion donuts called the 'Brooklyn Merry-Go-Round'. Don't ask me how they came up with the name, but basically it's a blend of cookie dough and a bagel. I don't know if it's going to be chewy or crunchy or creamy, but I'm still looking forward to trying one anyway.  It's dough that's deep-fried and covered in sugar. Of course it's going to be good, right!

They'll be at your local Mr. Donuts until the end of June and come in four different flavors:
  • Caramel almond (the first one I'll try)
  • Chocolate Nut
  • Plain
  • Macha Brownie
They aren't cheap though. Including tax, one of these creations will set you back 194 yen, which is about double what you would pay for a standard donut. I wonder if it'll be twice as good? Ha ha!

I'll let you know tomorrow...

Have a great day!
