Chanukah doughnut fit for a (burger) king

Chanukah doughnut fit for a (burger) king

Jelly doughnuts have long been an Israeli Chanukah staple.

In recent years, gourmet variations have invaded trendy Tel Aviv bakeries.

And now this: Burger King restaurants in Israel have introduced a doughnut burger for the Chanukkah season.

The SufganiKing is a Whopper with savory doughnuts in place of buns. Its name is a play on the Hebrew word for doughnuts, sufganiyot, which are ubiquitous on every Israeli street corner in the weeks leading up to Chanukah.

The burger “proves that miracles still happen,” Burger King Israel said in a Facebook post.

The SufganiKing will be sold for about $4. It will be available through January 1, the last day of Chanukah, according to reports.
