Mochinut review image

Mochinut

Perfect For:Quick EatsKids

This chain is in more than half the states in this country, which means we’re not the only fans. The Japanese-style doughnuts here are made with 95% rice flour and 5% wheat flour, which results in doughnuts that have subtly crispy outsides and soft and chewy centers. With more than 20 different colorful varieties (matcha, black sesame, and peanut butter, for example), you’ll have no trouble finding a few you’ll like. Our go-tos are the coconut and the original. Mochinut also has bubble tea and hot dogs encrusted with things like Hot Cheetos and tiny cubes of fried potatoes.
