See these doughnuts? They’re from the forthcoming Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, opening near Metro Center in January. If you want to taste them, the earliest you can do so is at a two-day Astro pop-up at Chinatown Coffee Co. on Dec. 20 and 21.

Among the too-extreme-for-Krispy-Kreme flavors Astro’s doughnut meister Jason Gehring will be serving from 8 a.m. until they’re gone: maple-bacon, banana nut, gingerbread, creme brulee, peanut butter and jelly, and much to the chagrin of one of our Slate colleagues, a grapefruit-glazed doughnut. Quantities are limited, so swing by on your way into work if you can.

Until then, more photos of doughnuts:
