Check Out Krispy Kreme Japan’s World Dulce Cup Donuts

Krispy Kreme Japan's World Cup donuts all look amazing, and we would like several dozen, please

Celebrating worldwide athleticism with a box of donuts? Sounds perfect to us.

In honor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the dessert masters at Krispy Kreme Japan have introduced a limited-edition series of donuts inspired by a few of the participating countries.

Although we’d love it if each of the 32 qualifying countries got their own donut, only six received the honor of being immortalized in Krispy Kreme: host country Brazil, France, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

With the exception of Japan’s creation, the Green Tea cake which appears on the regular menu, each donut is only available (in Japan) from now until Monday, July 14th.

Brazil’s Mango Passion donut features mango and passionfruit filling with mango-flavored icing and white chocolate, France’s Crème Brulee donut is a glazed original donut with a custard crème and dark caramel sauce, topped with caramelized candy; Italy has a Tiramisu donut with coffee icing and cocoa powder, and the United Kingdom’s Peach Melba donut is a yeast donut topped with peach-flavored icing, raspberry sauce, almonds, and dried cranberries.

Finally, Krispy Kreme Japan chose a Lemon Cheesecake donut to represent the United States. The vanilla cream cheese-filled donut is topped with lemon crème and crushed graham crackers.

A complete World Dolce Cup box of all six donuts will cost 1340 yen (approximately $13.14 USD), and World Dolce Dozen is available for 2000 yen (approximately $19.61 USD).

Each individual donut is available for 230 yen (approximately $2.26 USD) with the exception of Japan’s Green Tea Cake donut, which is available for approximately $1.86 USD).
