Japan's favorite Pon De Ring now at Mister Donut Philippines!

Japan's famous Pon De Ring arrives at
Mister Donut stores in the Philippines!

So what is a Pon De Ring?  Well, Pon De Ring is basically still a donut but not, confusing?  I remember that I first had a taste of this during one of my trips to South Korea, we were just taking the subway and I was just waiting for wifey when suddenly these oddly shaped donuts caught my attention.


Making it's debut in Japan, after being such a hit there came to the other parts of Asia such as South Korea and Taiwan, where as I heard when they first introduced to the market had long lines of up to 4 hours just to get their fill of Pon De Ring donuts.  Well good news is that it's now finally here in the Philippines and we can all get our share.
