Kimchi Donuts from Dunkin' Donuts in Korea

Fried dough and fermented cabbage aren't two things that usually join forces, except maybe in South Korea where my friend spotted this kimchi donut. It's one of five "ethnic" flavors that Dunkin' Donuts launched (they also made a yogurt-filled one in Greece and soy-filled one in Japan). Technically there's no hole, so they're calling them kimchi croquettes. File this under: potentially genius or a vile, gag reflex-inducing mistake.
