While this might not be the best choice for our teeth, Fat Hippo has introduced a new limited edition Simpson’s-inspired doughnut burger that combines sweet, spice, and all things nice this Spring. The special doughnut burger is the result of partnering of the food industry giants Fat Hippo and Project D, who are the doughnut extraordinaires.
Fat Hippo is famed for its quality ingredients and quirky flavours, not shy of pushing burger boundaries. The Newcastle-based burger joint teamed up with doughnut connoisseurs Project D, famous for their mega giant doughnuts and viral videos, and came up with the perfect pairing of the year, The Big D’oh!
The Big D’oh! is available from March 22 until April 22, with a tangy addition of chilli and lime fries in 16 Fat Hippo restaurants across the UK, as well as on Deliveroo and Click + Collect.
The doughnut burger comes with Project D’s Homer doughnut with pink icing and sprinkles, Fat Hippo’s signature brined, double-fried, boneless, buttermilk chicken seasoned with chilli and lime, smoked bacon, blueberry jello and herby cream cheese. While all Fat Hippo burgers come with a free side of fries, these have been upgraded with chilli and lime seasoning, yet can also be purchased on their own.
The Big D’oh! was innspired by Homer Simpson himself, who has been in almost 750 episodes since The Simpsons came out in 1989. What is more, Homer’s iconic pink iced doughnut with the rainbow sprinkles has officially become one of the most recognisable sweet treats in modern history, so it sounded like the obvious choice. Even though a tad unusual at first glance, Fat Hippo’s BurgerLab aren’t afraid of judgement, especially when it results in a feast fit for lunch, dinner AND dessert, we’re not complaining. After all, the said judgement can be psitive, too!
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.”
