As the end of the year is coming close, the annual Mister Donut and The Pokémon Company collaboration is here to spread some joy during the Christmas season.
This year a new and winter-themed version of Pikachu joins the line-up of Pokémon donuts, Snowman Pikachu! The Snowman Pikachu has a white chocolate coating, a shimmering snowflake topping, and a whipped cream filling.
Returning for the fifth time in a row is the Pikachu donut, which contains a rich cream custard pudding flavor with chocolate. I didn’t purchase it this time, but you can check out the Mister Donut’s Pokémon Christmas Collection 2021 post that includes it.
This year a new lineup of French cruller Pokémon donuts join the party, including Pikachu, Jigglypuff, and the Snowman Pikachu. The Pikachu Snowman cruller donut is pudding-flavored with a whipped cream middle and a shiny white chocolate coating with a shimmering snowflake topping.
While I have yet to try the others, the website states that the Pikachu cruller donut has a pudding-flavored cream and whipped cream topped with yellow pudding-flavored chocolate. The Jigglypuff also features a pudding-flavored cream and is topped with strawberry chocolate. This is ironic because Jigglypuff in Japanese is Purin, which means pudding.
The box features an adorable illustration of Pikachu, Snowman Pikachu, and Jigglypuff. On the top of the box has an actual window you can open to reveal a cozy Pikachu and Snowman Pikachu.
The take-out bag features a Christmassy illustration of Pikachu and Jigglypuff.
Mister Donut also offers limited Pokémon goods that are part of a set. We decided on the glass set that features adorable illustrations of Pikachu and Jigglypuff for this set. We pre-ordered another set that we will pick up in December. We hope you all look forward to the post on that one.
Here’s a closer look at the Mister Donut x Pokémon Christmas Collection 2022 sets available this year.
