Creator Of Mister Donut’s Famed Pon De Ring Is A Finance Grad Who Sold Doughnuts For 7 Years
As with many Japanese products, the Pon De Ring has its own cutesy mascot called the Pon De Lion, which helped popularise the doughnut with its amusing ads. Like this almost 20 years old Lion King-inspired clip, which showed the doughnut lion uncontrollably munching on its own mane.
Mister Donut fans can soon get their hands on the Pon De Ring when the brand opens its first permanent Singapore outlet this Sunday (May 21). The franchised takeaway kiosk will offer Misdo’s best-selling doughnuts, which will be fried fresh on-site. Masaaki, who will be flying here to make doughnuts again, told 8days.sg: “Our target is to open nine stores in three years.”
Mister Donut Singapore opens May 21 at #02-27A Junction 8, 9 Bishan Place, S579837. May 20 early access for RE&S &Rewards members. More updates via Instagram.
