To mark the return of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Australian-made Doughnut Time will be selling the UK’s first doughnut – loaded with crickets.

Coined ‘The Bushtucker’, the baked good includes similar critters that the likes of Scarlett Moffatt, Gillian McKeith and Gemma Collins have been seen chomping on during the bushtucker trials. Those who want to take part in their own bush tucker trial should head to Doughnut Time’s Shaftesbury Avenue store. The limited-edition treat will be available from until Friday 24th November. 

Insect Doughnut


For most diners, the thought of eating insects might prove to be one culinary step too far – even if it meant going hungry in the jungle. However, those who are brave enough to endure the trial can expect a milk chocolate glazed ring doughnut, laden with salt and vinegar-flavoured crickets. The makers of the stomach-churning treat have described the taste as ‘sweet and tangy with a serious crunch’. The doughnut also includes a generous helping of Oreo crumb, Shredded Wheat and raspberry jam to sweeten the deal.


Challengers who complete the task in-store will walk away with their very own gold star, alike the ones that will be awarded to contestants throughout this years series. The gold star will entitle the champion to a FREE doughnut, that can be claimed until the 24th November 2017.
