And when we say giant we mean cartoon-sized large, like the size of a face! Now that's paying due respect. The origins of National Doughnut Day are murky at best and are probably Simpson's-related but hey, we're not complaining or looking too closely at how this sweet-toothed day came into existence. And while it's not a national holiday (yet) it's important work to mark doughnut day respectfully by getting involved with some of that round doughy, sugar-topped sweetness.

Sure, you can get yourself a gluten-free version or a regular-sized one, but to truly celebrate  you need to go large with Doughnut Time's limited edition giant doughnuts. Quadruple the size of a regular round ring of dough, the giant doughnuts come in three flavours: a Nutella-filled, chocolate-glazed version topped with crispy M & M's called 'big poppa'; a classic strawberry glazed version with rainbow sprinkles; a vegan red velvet doughnut frosted with vegan cookies and cream, crushed choc ripple biscuits and vegan chocolate glaze drizzle. Permission to drool.
