However, there is a limited time to catch it!
Every year we look forward to Mister Donut’s A range of Pokémon donutswhich has become a fixture in the candy scene each year-end holiday season.
The very popular Pikachu donut is back this year with a snow-white version, but that’s not all Pokémon that will grace our palates this season.
▼ This year, for the first time, Mister Donut creates a shaped donut Jigglypuff!
Like Pikachu’s donuts, Jigglypuff is filled with whipped cream, but that’s where the similarity ends as this cute candy is covered in strawberry chocolate. The Pokémon’s little tuft of hair is created with a swirl of whipped cream to give it a three-dimensional appearance, and those adorable eyes and ears are made of chocolate chips.
Jigglypuff is known as “Puryn” in Japan, but there is no mention of any purine flavors in its making, which is odd considering Pikachu’s donut is covered in a purine-flavored yellow chocolate coating.

The network uses Jigglypuff’s Japanese name in its description, introducing it as “Purin, a Pokémon that sings a pleasant song“. Personally, we think they missed a great marketing opportunity sell some Pikachu donuts with their eyes closed to create the illusion that Jigglypuff sent some of them to sleepbut given the problem they had in making Pikachu’s donuts look cute, they’re probably less inclined to tinker with the design.
We hope Jigglypuff looks as cute in real life as it does in photos because let’s face it, with two large round eyes and a raised squiggle between them, a lot can go wrong here.
The new Jigglypuff donut will retail for 291 yen (US$2.10) for take-out customers and 297 yen on-site, and will be available at Mister Donut stores nationwide from December 1 until the end of the year.
