Butterbeer Donuts Are Here And 'Harry Potter' Fans Are Freaking Out
These 'Harry Potter' inspired donuts even have a golden snitch in the middle.
My wife is the one responsible for my appreciation of all things Potter-related. One of the biggest takeaways I had from the movies when she finally sat me down to binge watch them all was that the wizards of Hogwarts really, really knew how to eat.
Cauldron cakes? Steak and kidney pies? Treacle tarts? Come on, sign me up baby. I want it all! But the one treat I craved for most wasn't even really food: it was Butterbeer. I'm not the biggest fan of butterscotch, but my God, when those three little magical nerds sat down to sip on some of the buttery business, my mouth began watering.
You can technically get the stuff at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or even make it yourself, but if you ever wanted to down this creamy, buttery goodness yourself in the form of a donut, then you're in luck.
Sugar Shack Donuts & Coffee out of Virginia has created a Butterbeer donut that looks absolutely incredible. If you're not familiar with Butterbeer, it tastes like a mash-up of cream soda and butterscotch.
Not only has Sugar Shack made a donut that's full of Butterbeer flavor, but as an homage to Harry Potter, they packed a golden snitch made out of a donut hole so you can regale your friends with tales of your quidditch prowess right before you bite into it.
The donuts pack golden star sprinkles and the snitch is decked out with vanilla fondant wings: It truly is a thing of beauty. According to Spoon University, the snitch is made up of a golden-glazed doughnut hole and wings sculpted from white fondant.
Now if you want to get yourself one of these tasty treats, you'll have to be quick about it. Sugar Shack is offering these at all of their locations eventually, but the availability will be limited. So hop on your nimbus 2000 to pick one up, but you may want to call ahead just to make sure your nearest shop carries them.
In a recent Facebook post, the company wrote, "Yes, we will have Butterbeer Donuts this month, but no we don't yet. In the meantime, bring your favourite HP novel for a free house donut today." How far would you travel on your broomstick for one of these?
