When you think of charcoal, food doesn’t really come to mind. In Thailand, however, they’re using it as the magic ingredient in a special edition of donuts.

Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand has come out with 27 special black doughnuts that are made from an edible charcoal composed of bamboo and baked bark imported from Europe. The company has even created a fluffy mascot called Charcoal Bear to promote the special doughnut variants.

The flavors include Charcoal BBQ Ring, Charcoal Jalapeno, Charcoal Choco Chilli, Charcoal Blue Mint, Charcoal Banoffee, and Charcoal French Praline.

Each doughnut sells for 27 baht or just under 1 US dollar. Apparently sales are good, according to a report on Bangkok Keizai, and the company’s US office is watching with great interest. Whether these special doughnuts will make it to other countries is yet to be seen.
