Everyone knows Dr. Andonuts likes donuts/doughnuts, but not many people know where Dr. Andonuts actually gets his name.
The Japanese are fond of azuki red bean paste, generally called an or anko in Japanese. They use it a lot in sweets, often as filling for pastries. If you’ve ever heard of the famous Anpanman animated character, his head is filled with an. This an is also used in donuts, which are called “an-donuts”.
these are an-donuts
There aren’t any English Wikipedia pages for it, but you can see the Japanese page here. They’re popular and you can find them just about everywhere in Japan, even grocery stores and convenience stores. Try them if you get a chance, I find they’re really nice when fresh or slighty chilled, like if left in a fridge for a short while.
