Tesco are selling cheese and onion flavour doughnuts

But not in Ireland. Yet.

TESCO HAVE BEGUN selling cheese and onion flavour doughnuts.

They’re called Weirdoughs, and are also available in salt and vinegar flavour.

Here they are on the shelves, as tweeted by someone who says they are a Tesco employee:

The savoury concoctions are now available in some UK stores. They cost £1 for a pack of 10.

Tesco’s online store suggests that they would go well with a tub of cream and chive dip.


(Sadly, Tesco have confirmed to that they have no plans to introduce Weirdoughs in Irish stores.)

So… is it a cronut? Is it a cronado? Does it have sauce in the middle? No – according to the review at The Grocer, it’s literally a doughnut that tastes like cheese and onion.

Tesco’s bakery perverts have simply covered normal doughnuts with crisp flavours…. Grim.

The reaction on Twitter has been mixed. Mixed. Some people were reasonably positive:

Others were… not.

Has anyone tried a Weirdough? Are there other unusual flavours you’d like to add to a doughnut? TELL US.
