While Pokémon Go and the 20th anniversary of Pokémon has helped usher in a new golden age for the media franchise, it’s also led to a flourishing emergence of Pokémon-based food, whether it’s Mewtwo cookies or Pikachu cutlets or Luvdisc Pokébowls or Pokémon burgers. The latest addition to the Pokéfood lineup comes courtesy of Krispy Kreme, and as much as we love their donuts stateside, the only place to claim a Pokémon donut of your own is at their South Korean locations.
We wish so badly we didn’t have to fly across an ocean to get to these perfect pastries, because they look delightful. Maybe don’t crack them open from the top, through, because it’ll look like a grisly murder scene:
This wouldn’t be a problem with the Pokéball donut, unless you imagine it as a Voltorb. Aside from Pokéball, they also come in Pikachu and Squirtle, and they’re almost too cute to eat. Still, if you do happen to find yourself in South Korea, you ought to hurry to your nearest Krispy Kreme, because these are only available for a limited time, until the 10th of the month.
Even if you have a gluten allergy or some other dietary restriction that would prevent you from enjoying this beautiful, beautiful thing, it’d still be worth buying some for a friend and keeping the box, because the art on them is gorgeous. One depicts Pikachu holding some sort of blue berry or fruit, while the other features the first-generation starters just palling around.
