19.October.2018 | FOOD

With the temperature beginning to drop, MINISTOP are releasing two new sweet steamed buns. The purin flavoured buns were released on October 19 while the chocolate purin buns will be released on November 9.

MINISTOP’s sweet steamed buns are a popular favourite. The purin flavoured buns were released last year and blew up on social media. They are returning again this year in limited quantities. Both the purin and chocolate purin buns are on the small side making them perfect as a snack or to fill a hole. Their designs are eye-catching too.

Marugoto Purin Bun

This bun is stuffed with an entire purin which is a whole dessert in itself. It’s topped with caramel sauce and a sprinkling of cocoa powder to make the bun itself look like a purin too.

Marugoto Chocolate Purin Bun

This is a chocolate version of the purin bun. It’s stuffed with a rich and velvety chocolate purin. The outside is topped with chocolate to make it look like another chocolate purin.


MINISTOP’s sweet steamed buns are a hit every year. Which one do you want to try the most?
