[TOKYO] Panda Donuts from Siretoco

Dear Food Diary:
New York is all crazy about Cronuts, in Tokyo however, they’ve gone wild with these cute Panda Donuts from Siretoco Donuts.

I went in search of them in the rain. Sold right by the Ueno Zoo station, where there’s Panda everything! They come in a variety of flavors and are definitely too cute to eat, but I still managed to sink my teeth into their moist fluffiness.

Inside the Ecute, at the JR Ueno Station, even though there’s Panda baked goods all over, these are the cutest in my book. Least expected idea.

Seeing rows upon rows, all stacked up, I couldn’t help but smile and cheer “kawaii“!!! The sales girls must of thought I was nuts.

Panda Donuts 3 flavors from Siretoco Donuts at Ueno Station
I got these 3. Most looking forward to hokkaido milk, but the shireteco salt caramel turned out to be the best. Really moist and fluffy. The buttery milky flavor was brought out by the salt. So good. And though, it really wasn’t an actual doughnut, more like a really good pound cake, I still fell in love. Look at them, how could you resist.

The chocolate wasn’t as moist as salt caramel, but StalkerBoy totally enjoyed the chocolate chips. I thought the color contrast made it extra cute.

The hokkaido milk tasted quite plain and not as moist. My least favorite of the 3.
