    What they came up with this Halloween is as tasty and fluffy as ever, with creative details and excellent presentation. The Halloween 2019 doughnuts “MONSTER HARVEST in Monster DINER” are both Insta-worthy and truly delicious. You might buy them for the looks, but find yourself eating to the last bite because of good noms.

    Pumpkin Custard Jack’O’Lantern

    True to its name, this doughnut is filled with pumpkin flavoured custard and covered in pumpkin chocolate. The Jack’O’Lantern trademark eyes and creepy smile are done in dark bitter chocolate. Our favourite little detail is that a single pumpkin seed plays the part of the pumpkin’s stem on top. This doughnut’s very soft, rich, decadent and a classic look for both Halloween and autumn.

    Black Cat Chestnut

    Chestnut flavour represents autumn, while the black cat tries to add some spookiness, and as always a “kawaii factor”. The doughnut is full of chestnut/caramel cream, covered in dark chocolate with decorations in white chocolate and caramel, as well as poppy seeds. Our favourite detail are the cat ears, as your mouth will soon discover they are crispy and crunchy!

    This one-eyed monster is covered in red glaze and details in dark and white chocolate. The apple flavour is not just any apple, it is Aomori apple – an area famous for apple production in Japan. Aomori apples have a great balance of sweetness and tartness. This doughnut too has a pumpkin seed to resemble a stem.
