    25 Cupcakes And Donuts That Should Be Banished From Planet Earth

    I have yet to meet a person who'd want bubblegum in their donut.

    You know how sometimes people forget the rules to humanity and make bonkers new food ideas? Well, here are 25 donut and cupcake flavors that somehow actually exist.

    1. Let's begin with the Dew-Rito cupcake, which is "a Mountain Dew cake topped with Mountain Dew frosting, rimmed in Dorito crumbs," because of course it is; nonsense is the reigning monarch.

    2. Tom & Chee sells multiple donuts that are also grilled cheeses. But grilled cheese donuts.

    3. Voodoo Doughnut's "Oh Captain, My Captain" donut, which is a donut with vanilla frosting and Cap’n Crunch.

    4. And California Donuts has a similar one simply called "Froot Loop."

    5. But I think their more pressing donut is "Blueberry Toast Crunch."

    6. Also, Skittles cupcakes are a thing.

    7. Voodoo Doughnut has a donut they describe as a "Raised ring with vanilla frosting, bubble gum dust, and a piece of bubble gum."

    8. Don't worry, you can also get the bubblegum flavor in cupcake form if you don't want the bubblegum flavor in bubblegum form.

    9. In May, Dynamo Donut & Coffee had a "Strawberry Earl Grey" donut, which my mouth genuinely cannot comprehend.

    10. Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken has a "Maple Bacon Ring" donut, which is a maple donut with a piece of bacon on it.

    11. Speaking of, Doughnuttery sells a donut with "maple, purple potatoes [and] bacon."

    12. And one with "rosemary, roasted cornmeal [and] fig."

    13. Yeah, so, um, marmite cupcakes, apparently exist.

    14. We also have "dark chocolate bacon cupcakes," because bacon has spread into every aspect of life.

    15. I'm sorry, Krispy Kreme, but for some reason, New York Cheesecake donuts don't land. They don't sit well with me. I'm not happy.

    16. Smoked salmon cupcakes are absolutely not for me, thank you.

    17. I love quinoa just as much as the next gal, but if the next gal enjoys quinoa cupcakes, this is where our similarities end.

    18. Look, I don't drink, so I have no idea how a tequila sunrise tastes, but I feel like it's not something you'd want your cupcake to taste like, right?

    19. I have the same question about a "Chocolate Martini" cupcake.

    20. But none of that really matters when we have the Cotton Candy Margarita cupcake to deal with.

    21. Strange Donuts has something called a "pizza donut," which sure sounds like it's a pizza donut. A wild combo.

    22. Blackbird Doughnuts sells an Everything Bagel donut, which confuses me.

    23. Candied Yam cupcakes are something Monica Geller would make and the other friends would be like, "Um, do we tell her this is an unhinged idea?"

    24. The "honestly" in the name of the "Honestly Sweet Potato Avocado Banana Cake" cupcake is concerning.

    25. And finally, foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts. Foie gras donuts.
