Deliveroo and Doughnut Time a have joined forces to create for a special ‘Star Wars day’ sweet treat.
Star Wars fans celebrate the film franchise on May the 4th, as nod to the space saga’s catchphrase “May the Force be with you”.
And, in what appears to be a nod to an iconic hairstyle in the first film of original trilogy – Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope – Deliveroo and Doughnut Time have released a “four-pack of parody doughnuts”.
In the film that launched the franchise, Princess Leia – portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher – had two hair buns on the side of her head that have been likened to doughnuts.
Now, in a press release that avoids mentioning Star Wars directly, Deliveroo and Doughnut Time say: “Celebrating ‘May the 4th’ this year?
“Deliveroo and Doughnut Time have joined forces to create a limited-edition four-pack of doughnuts with a dual purpose. Devour – and look divine.
“Available between 3rd-7th May, the four-pack of parody doughnuts contains two Cinnamon Swirl Buns fit for a princess. The delicious sugar-coated buns are a treat for the tastebuds – mouthwateringly soft, spiced with cinnamon and glazed with candied stars. What’s more, the buns double up as a hair accessory to take any ‘May the 4th’ costume to the next level.
“Alongside the Cinnamon Swirl Buns, the special edition four-pack also contains two mouth-watering doughnut rings, covered with vanilla glazing in blue and purple hues inspired by the galaxy.”
Isabella Aldridge from Doughnut Time said: “Our friends at Deliveroo challenged us with creating some out of this world doughnuts to celebrate May the 4th.
“We’re always game for conjuring up something surprising for our fans so got to work creating our first ever doughnuts that are as wearable as they are eat-able!”
Aisha Jefferson from Deliveroo said: “It’s not a coincidence that these doughnuts look as unbelievable as they taste. Whether you’re devouring or wearing them, make sure you get your hands on one of these Doughnut Time four-packs before they vanish like a supernova, never to be seen again.
“We know our customers will love these May the 4th doughnuts, it’s written in the stars!”
