Turkey and Cranberry Stuffed Donuts for Thanksgivukkah


Zucker Bakery, go to your room and think about what you’ve done. What do you think you’re doing, putting TURKEY in a DONUT?

Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same date this year, and to commemorate, New York City’s Zucker Bakery decided to stuff the American Thanksgiving dinner inside a traditional Jewish sufganiyah. The pastries come in four varieties: spiced pumpkin-flavored, filled with turkey and gravy; spiced pumpkin, filled with turkey and cranberry; spiced pumpkin, filled with only cranberry; and sweet potato-flavored, filled with toasted marshmallow.


The promotional images are admittedly gorgeous, but we still can’t shake our utter bewilderment that such a combination actually exists.

Just tell us one thing, Zucker Bakery. Do you think this is a game? Do you not understand that the cronut (est. May — as in, six whole months ago — 2013) was a brilliant idea, but every Frankenfood/hybrid/creature-from-the-deep mash-up that’s followed since has at best paled in comparison, and at worst, committed all sorts of heinous sins against mankind? Do you not care about the children?


The Tur-Donuts will be available for public “enjoyment” starting this weekend. Mazel Tov, err body.

holy cow, I want to eat the bejeezus out of these. These are almost all of my favorite non alcoholic things. Hey Zucker Bakery? How bout something with cranberries and stuffing?
