In celebration of National Honeybee Day and National Potato Day on Saturday, August 19, two popular brands, Utz and Mike’s Hot Honey, have teamed up with New York City’s Dough Doughnuts to create a sizzling summer donut.
The limited-edition Hot Honey Mango DoughnUTZ features a hot honey mango glaze, crushed Utz Mike’s Hot Honey Potato Chips and a drizzle of Mike’s Hot Honey. It’s then topped with a whipped, cream cheese covered doughnut hole and finished with a crispy hot honey chip.
“People have been loving our Utz Mike’s Hot Honey Potato Chips, and this fun collaboration with Dough offers us a whole new way to share a new favorite flavor,” says Korlin Serauskis, Utz Brands, Inc. vice president of brand marketing. “It also gives us an opportunity to work with another company that - like Mike’s - shares our bond with New York and our search for craveable tastes.”
“We are excited to partner with our friends at Utz who also share a rich east coast history and another great Brooklyn brand Dough for this special summer treat,” says Matt Beaton, Mike’s Hot Honey chief executive officer. “When it comes to flavor combinations, few tastes pair better than sweet and salty with a touch of heat and now Dough’s has brought this to a whole new level.”
The new Hot Honey Mango DoughnUTZ will be available beginning August 19 at the following Dough Doughnuts locations for a limited time only:
- Flatiron (14 W 19th St.)
