Cherry Blossom fever has struck Vancouver, and although we won’t be getting Starbucks’ new cherry blossom frappuccino, we will be able to bite our way through Sakura doughnuts in celebration of spring!
Lucky’s Doughnuts has announced that they will serve special Sakura doughnuts from Thursday March 24, through April 14, in line with the annual Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival.
The classic filled Bismarcks will be infused with Japanese Sakura blossoms and filled with house-made sweet red bean paste. They’re then topped with a strawberry-sakura glaze, matcha meringue, and a mini sakura blossom shortbread cookie.
“The doughnuts will be available in very limited amounts due to the supply of salt-packed sakura blossoms we’ve imported from Japan,” said Lucky’s Doughnuts co-founder Colter Jones, in a statement.
Each Sakura doughnut will be sold for $5.00 each and come in a bright pink custom designed box. Doughnuts will be served on a first-come-first-served basis daily, with a limit of six per person.
