With this theme, we have prepared donuts that are perfect for fun summer memories. Furthermore, this year, the sales area has been expanded to include stores in Gifu and Mie prefectures. We will power up and enliven the Tokai area.

High school students from the student executive committee of “Clear Stream Country Gifu Sobun 2024″ are participating in this product planning. We received a proposal for collaboration directly from the high school students on the student executive committee, and it was realized as a result of a shared desire to energize the Tokai area.

Two types will be available: “Konpeito Water Balloon”* and “Tsubugumi Grape Hanabi”*, which is an updated version of the “Tsubugumi” donut that was especially popular last year.

* “Konpeito Water Balloon” *
is a donut made with Kasugai Seika’s long-selling product
“Konpeito.” It is also very popular with high school students, who said, “It’s summery and cute,” “The texture would be fun with donuts,” and “I love konpeito.” The fluffy dough is filled with custard cream and wrapped in a custard-flavored coating. By drawing random lines with strawberry chocolate and decorating with
“Konpeito” which is colorful and has a fun crunchy texture, it is reminiscent of water balloons lined up at a summer festival.

* “Tsubugumi Grape Fireworks” *
is a collaboration donut with Kasugai Seika’s highly popular “Tsubugumi”. A layered ring of chocolate is topped with “Tsubugumi PREMIUM Rich Grape”, which has a rich taste, and colorful sprinkles. The fluffy and melting dough is filled with slightly bitter chocolate cream. A chocolate-coated donut with brightly colored sprinkles and crushed gummies is reminiscent of fireworks lighting up the night sky. Please enjoy the harmony of the popular flavor “grape” and chocolate in the Tsubu Gummy series.

This year as well, an event sponsored by Kasugai Seika* “Strange Summer School in Aichi”*
is scheduled to be held. 29 companies that came together to make Aichi even more exciting are collaborating to plan a “learning” event that both children and adults can enjoy. We will deliver a memorable and slightly strange summer.

Starting Wednesday, July 17th, customers who purchase 6 or more donuts of their choice at Krispy Kreme Donut stores in the Tokai area will receive them in a box with an original sleeve.
