    There's A New Donut Called "Santa's Yumnut" And My Mind Now Lives In The Gutter

    Yes, you read that right.

    Now that November is here and Mariah Carey's streams are already skyrocketing, it's safe to say that the holidays are officially upon us.

    And nothing screams "holidays" like getting a taste of Santa's warm, thick Yumnut™. British retailer Marks & Spencer just announced that they're releasing a Santa-fied version of their Yumnut™ donut, and they chose to announce it in the most questionable way possible:

    Who wants a bite of Santa’s Yumnut™? Our yum yum-doughnut hybrids have been given a Christmassy makeover, with delicious flaky pastry layers and a sweet Santa’s belt topping. Find them in our in store bakery.

    Now, if you're asking yourself what a Yumnut™ is, I'm glad you asked. For one, no it's not THAT. Two, a Yumnut™ is a combination of a Yum Yum — which is a flaky rope-shaped fried dough glazed with icing — and a donut. So, a donut within a donut, I guess. Think cronut, but Yumnut™.

    Needless to say, you weren't the only one whose mind fell straight into the gutters of London:

    @rpdrukfans @marksandspencer I wonder how Mrs Clause is feeling about the public being able to have a little taste of her man??

    Other brands joined in on the fun too:

    @marksandspencer We love nuts but we're quite happy to pass on Santa’s Yumnut. Thanks for the offer though

    @marksandspencer Well... even we have broken out in a sweat reading this 🥵good thing he only comes once a year

    @marksandspencer If anybody needs help popping their eyes back in after reading this, give us a shout.

    Plus, Mike Knowles here pointed out that Yumnut™ is even trademarked, so don't go stealing what belongs to Santa.

    @marksandspencer Christ they’ve actually trademarked it. They’ve trademarked Yumnut.

    In conclusion, if you're not washing down your M&S Love Sausage™ with Santa's Yumnut™, are you even doing the holidays right?
