This behemoth of a donut is being offered as a promotion at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa as part of their “DoNut Disturb” hotel package. The donut weighs a whopping 10 pounds (more than roughly 5-dozen regular donuts), and comes with what appears to be a bucket of sweet cream frosting and a rainbow of over-sized sprinkles.
As big as this donut is, it has nothing on a record-sized donut created by a couple of bakeries out of Utica, NY, back in 1993. Their mountainous donut weighed a ridiculous 3,739 pounds – almost two tons! It was 16 feet in diameter and 16 inches high, and it wasn’t the traditional glazed donut that you would expect – it was a jelly-filled! (Sounds like a dream come true…)
We’re curious. What would you do with a 10 pound donut? Eat it all? Share it? Use it as a door stop? Let us know!
