Delightful news for donut lovers! A new limited-edition donut has been released by an exclusive collaboration between Simply Donuts and Smoke and Soul. The 'Dark Days' donut has been expertly crafted, with a special chocolate stout glaze made with local brewers' Six Degrees North's "Dark Days" whisky barrel imperial stout and topped with Smoke and Soul slow smoked pecans. This limited-edition donut also comes boxed with a large toasted almond glazed braided donut, making it perfect for sharing between two people or up to four if you want to limit your sugar high!

But this isn't just any collaboration. In a show of support for mental health awareness, 100% of the expected profits from the sales of these donuts will be donated to The Feel Better Tour, a customer of the business who is making a 185 mile, multi-sport journey across Scotland and fundraising for two local mental health charities. The three businesses involved, hope that this sweet collaboration will not only bring joy to donut lovers but also raise awareness of the importance of mental health support.

Corey Milne, Owner of Smoke and Soul said, ‘"We are thrilled to collaborate with Simply Donuts on this limited-edition Dark Days donut. We wanted to create something special for our customers while also giving back to the community. Mental health is a cause close to our hearts, and we are proud to support the Feel Better Tour and the fundraising efforts for local mental health charities".

While the name "DARK DAYS" might sound ominous, it's a reminder that everyone has their own version of dark days, and it's essential to seek help and support when you're struggling to cope with your feelings. By supporting this collaboration, not only can you treat yourself to a delicious donut but you're also helping to make a positive impact in the community. So, don't miss out on what might just be the sweetest collaboration to date!
