Krispy Kreme UK recently unveiled a donut lover’s wet dream in the form of the Double Hundred Dozen, a 2,400 pack of original glazed glory that will be part of the company’s new “Occasions” offerings for large events. As expected from the photo above and after the jump, packing and delivering the Double Hundred Dozen is an ordeal requiring eight Krispy Kreme staff members and a box measuring over 3.5 meters long and just under a meter tall (that’s roughly 11.5 x 3ft for the metric impaired).
The company is currently holding a contest that will award one lucky business with a Double Hundred Dozen for an upcoming event (enter by tweeting @krispykremeUK about an upcoming #BigOccasion with an #officename). For the rest of England, there doesn’t seem to be any indication of how many pounds this thing will cost – either in currency or on the scale.
Groot-themed everything is all the rage these days, and that certainly extends to edibles. DeviantArt user AnimeGeer sculpted a baby Groot and made a food safe mold. Then she made all these dancing Groot cupcake toppers with candy melts from that mold and dressed them up with a little green frosting. They look delicious and adorable.

Can you believe that it’s the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters film? I mean, yikes, I’m starting to feel a little old now. Well, there’s no better way to assuage my crushing sadness about the inevitable arrival of my untimely demise than with lots and lots of donuts. Speaking of which, Krispy Kreme recently announced that they will sell two new marshmallow Kreme-filled Ghostbusters donuts in honor of the film’s anniversary. Krispy Kreme’s Ghostbusters and Stay Puft Marshmallow donuts will be available at participating Krispy Kreme US locations starting on September 29th, 2014 (while supplies last, of course).
The Ghostbusters donut will feature a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell that’s topped with white icing, a green “splat” inspired by Slimer’s green slime, and a Ghostbusters logo sugar piece. The Stay Puft version will feature a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell with white icing, a decorative Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and a sugar piece hat. You can also pre-order an advanced order of 5 dozen or more donuts at your closest participating location.
There are times that food at the L.A. County Fair gets a little crazy, but these new Funnel Cake Cupcakes by My Delight Cupcakery look like a little piece of heaven.
If funnel cake isn’t your thing, they’re serving up all kinds of goodies through the end of the month at the Fair (You can check out the PDF menu here). I’m thinking I may have to drop by for a Jack and Cherry Coke cupcake. That sounds amazing.
Before you get in your car to head down there, I reported incorrectly that My Delight would be at the L.A. County Fair. The”Fair-inspired” menu is currently available at their regular locations during normal business hours.
Whenever I see ice cream vendors with cartoon and geek themed popsicles, I’m always tempted to fork over money. It’s like some kind of instinct. I should know better though because the contents of the package rarely offer what’s advertised; instead, the eyes are wonky, the colors are melted together, etc. It might be traumatic for children.
Dorkly’s rounded up some cartoon popsicles that didn’t get it quite right, and the list features characters like Tweety Bird, Pikachu, Batman, and more. The pictures are fabulous and a little scary.

See a few of our favorites after the break…
Given all of the novelty Oreo flavors that have been released lately, it should come as no surprise that Pumpkin Spice Oreos are coming to stores soon.
Between these and the Caramel Apple Oreos, I’d say you’ve got your Halloween cookies handled.
Some lucky ducks got samples and people have a variety of reactions, so far. They range from amazing to ick, but the best comparison I’ve seen comes from Erin Chack who notes:
It tastes like what I imagine a fall-themed Yankee Candle would taste like.
If you want to try them yourself, they come out September 24th and will be around for 6 to 8 weeks or while supplies last.

Becky McKay was going for a real statement dish when she made this Oatmeal Creme Pie Creme Pie. She took six Little Debbie brand oatmeal creme pies (which are very tasty!) and she combined them all with butter, Cool Whip and 12 ounces of canned vanilla frosting. Then, voila! She had herself a creme pie within a creme pie.
If you’d like to learn more about making this dish, you can check out the full recipe here.
Making ice cream the old-fashioned way is great, but it’s not particularly fun. Thankfully, it looks like Hammacher Schlemmer has come up with an entertaining and innovative way for the whole family to make ice cream together while also getting a bit of exercise. The $35 Kickball Ice Cream Maker is… well, a kickball that makes ice cream.
Once you put all of your ingredients inside the “ice chamber,” it only takes 20 minutes of play-time to make a pint. Sounds good to me, but just make sure that’s 20 minutes of “no messing around, let’s kick butt and rule the playground” kickball, because otherwise, I think it might take a lot longer to churn out that tasty ice cream.
