1 week ago
Put down the chocolate eggs and step away from the hot cross buns… enjoy Easter weekend 7-9 April with this sweet special at Fat Hippo.
Socks and slides? Fries and milkshake? Elton and Blue? Just a few of the legendary combinations people said would never work but somehow did. Well here’s the latest, iced ring doughnut and buttermilk chicken. Nope, this isn’t an early April Fool’s… This is the limited edition Simpson’s inspired doughnut burger from food industry giants Fat Hippo and Project D.
Not shy of pushing burger boundaries, Fat Hippo, known for their quirky combinations and daring flavours, are teaming up with doughnut connoisseurs Project D, famous for their mega giant doughnuts and viral videos, for what is teeing up to be the culinary collaboration of the year – The Big D’oh!
Sandwiched in the award-winning, Project D ‘Homer’ doughnut is Fat Hippo’s signature brined, double-fried, boneless, buttermilk chicken seasoned with chilli and lime, smoked bacon, blueberry “jello” and herby cream cheese. As with all Fat Hippo burgers, comes with a free side of fries, however these have been upgraded with chilli and lime seasoning, which can also be purchased separately.
Inspired by the legend himself, Homer Simpson, who has starred in almost 750 episodes since he hit our screens in 1989, it’s no wonder his favourite iconic pink iced doughnut with the rainbow sprinkles has easily become one of the most recognisable sweet treats in history. Controversial it may seem to take this legendary snack and make it into a meal, but Fat Hippo’s BurgerLab aren’t afraid of a challenge, and when it results in a feast fit for lunch, dinner AND dessert – we’re not complaining!
Fat Hippo Head Chef, Richard Nelson said:
“Our BurgerLab love an exciting brief and our specials allow them to work with a range of new and exciting flavours, ingredients and suppliers to really get creative. We first noticed Project D on Tiktok, with their viral video creating the ‘Homer doughnut’ and knew we had to do something with them!
“It’s been a pleasure working with such trendsetters of the fast-growing dessert world.”
The Big D’oh! will be priced at £13.50, and is exclusively available at Fat Hippo, 22 March – 22 April.
