Bonus: Check out grand prize winner Mark Gee’s breathtaking video of a rising moon and tiny human silhouettes, pointing at it and ooh-ing and ahh-ing and generally marveling at the lunar awesomeness. It’s just … wow.

These are called Toronama Donuts. They aren’t your typical doughnuts which are fried, cooked or baked. They are frozen and made from various glazed toppings, sweet pastes, sauces, fruits, dessert creams, and the like, formed into the iconic and popular doughnut ring shape.
They are said to have a melt-in-your-mouth and creamy texture that makes people go wild and be willing to line up for hours in front of the shop just to buy them.
The shop that sells these is located in Nagoya City in Japan and is called, Love Sweets Antique. It is owned and run by Heart Bread Antique, a bakery chain in Aichi Prefecture.
