We have written a handful of articles about cute character-shaped doughnuts and cakes that can be found in Japan.

For a bit of perspective, imagine if you found a used condom mixed in with a bowl of rice you ordered at your school cafeteria, which is what actually happened to one unfortunate student at an unnamed university in Beijing.
