anne donuts

There is new donut shop in our area called Anne Donuts (pronounced Ahn).

Anne stands for Anshin (peace of mind) and Anzen (safe)...meaning that they sell products with no preservatives and use ingredients that are "safe" to eat.

I bought 4 for Satoshi and I to try.

Earl Grey...140 yen (about US$1.40) :lots of Earl Grey flavor

Cinnamon...130 yen (about US$1.30) : just cinnamon

Peanut...130 yen (about US$1.30) :roasted peanut bits

Okara...120 yen (about US$1.20) : (soy lees), this one is plain

I love their packaging...and that the lady at the counter wrapped the cinnamon one so as not to mix the flavors.

My favorite(s) were the Earl Grey and Cinnamon. Satoshi's were Peanut and Earl Grey.

We'll definitely be back to try more of their flavors.

Anne Donuts Factory (UPDATE: 7/2016 no longer in business)
1-23-2 Ishibashi
Ikeda, Osaka
Phone: 072.761.2666
Open 11:00-19:00 or earlier if they sell out : take-out only

p.s. the weather has taken a 180 and is now very nippy...hope the sun will come out to warm the days (especially for my cilantro and chili pepper plants). At least the evenings are more comfortable, no need to use the a/c or fan.

As soon as I saw the word donut in the title, I started to salivate just a little. These look great! I'd love to try that Earl Grey one :)

Take care everyone.

The Earl Grey one sounds delicious--although I wouldn't turn down the cinnamon one either. I like their packaging. ;-)

K and S said...

cute right? Debinhawaii, I think you would enjoy Earl Grey also :)

Take care.

Hi I just called over from Rowena's blog :-)

Well it is a good name to choose ,but I do not like Doughnuts .. to sweet . But I am sure they are tasty to those who like them :-)

K and S said...

Thanks Anne, these are not sweet like those you find in the States or in most other places :) Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

These look really yummy,with a cup of AMERICAN coffee in the morning (those were the days!). I just heard on the news that it snowed in some places in more northern Italy. I hope it won't snow at ours...yet!

K and S said...

eep! snow, stay warm Rowena!

Take care.

Paz said...

Donuts look good. Yum!

I have a friend called Anh. Didn't know what her name meant till now. Cool. ;-)

K and S said...

Paz, sorry I wasn't too clear. Anh paired with "shin" is peace of mind and Anh paired with "zen" is safe...still cool that you have a friend named Anh :)

Take care.

K said...

Oh yum! I love tea/Earl Grey pastries, cookies, basically anything, haha. All of the flavors sound great!

K and S said...

Me too K, earl grey always hooks me to try it :)

Take care.

Paz said...

Ahhh! Thanks for the clarification. I should have read more carefully. I like the meanings when paired with "zen" and "shin". Very cool.

Have a good week!


K and S said...

no problem Paz, it was my fault for not being clearer.

Take care.
