World traveler and Kessler Report scribe Jason Kessler hit us up from Thailand with this shocking moment in pastry history: sushi donuts from the famed Mr. Donut, home of "donut for fun." That's right, donuts that look like sushi. Sushi in donut form. So while we love croissants, donuts AND cronuts….how's a cronut supposed to compete with frosting shrimp, jelly tuna and gummy salmon? Maybe, just maybe, it isn't. Maybe making donuts into other things is the key to our evolution as a food-loving species.
It's just a shame Thailand beat France to the punchline. We'll take an eel, please. That's chocolate, right?
