Zucker Bakery in New York City’s East Village has unveiled a limited series of gourmet turkey-stuffed donuts to celebrate "Thanksgivukkah" – the convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. The two holidays are on the same day this year, which hasn’t happened for more than 100 years.
The celebratory donuts will come in four flavors, ranging from savory to sweet:
- Spiced pumpkin donut with turkey and gravy filling ($5)
- Spiced pumpkin donut with turkey and cranberry filling ($5)
- Spiced pumpkin donut with cranberry sauce filling ($3.50)
- Sweet potato donut with toasted marshmallow cream filling ($4)
Donuts are a traditional Hanukkah treat, and now patrons can enjoy them with a unique Thanksgiving twist. On sale through the end of the year, they're perfect for any celebration, whether Thanksgiving, Thanksgivukkah, Hannukah, Christmas, New Year's, or others!
Nicknamed "stuff-ganiyot" – a play on the Hebrew word for donuts, which is suffganiyot (suf-gan-ee-oat) – the donuts are the brainchild of Zucker Bakery founder Yaniv Zohar and friend Gil Levy of ECommerce Partners, the web firm that designed and launched the bakery's e-commerce web site.
The bakery is offering free samples of these Thanksgivukkah-inspired donuts on Friday, Nov. 8 between 4 and 6 p.m. at Zucker Bakery at 433 E 9th Street, New York.
