Donut King has partnered with Paramount Pictures to celebrate the upcoming release of the new Mean Girls film with a limited-edition range of donuts inspired by the iconic characters and quotes.

The “GROOL” new donut range will be available in all Donut King stores from January 2nd, 2024 and each box pack purchased comes with an entry to win an all-inclusive trip for two to New York (T&Cs apply*).

The donuts are a trip down memory lane for a generation of Mean Girls fans, with the range including a pink iced donut with gold crown sprinkles aptly called the “Re-sweet-a George”, a plaid-inspired strawberry iced donut called the “Gretchen Treaters” and of course, the “Glen Coco”, a chocolate donut covered in chocolate rice puffs and a vanilla drizzle.

As if that’s not enough nostalgia, the famous Burn Book is also making a re-appearance via the partnership, with the box set of donuts coming in a custom “Burn Box”.

The Donut King x Mean Girls donuts will be available in all Donut King stores from January 2nd, 2024 and can be purchased individually, or in 4, 6 or 12 packs.

The new and limited-edition range includes 6 new donut flavours:

  •   Aaron Caramuels
  •   Candy Heron
  •   Re-sweet-a George
  •   Gretchen Treaters
  •   Karen Sprinkles
  •   Glen Coco

Donut King Marketing Manager Raquel Hine said she is excited to celebrate the new and re-imagined Mean Girls film and lean into the iconic characters and quotes with the limited-edition range of donuts.

“The new range is an opportunity to reconnect with a generation who grew up in the original Mean Girls era and speak to nostalgia, which is a core value for the Donut King brand.”

The new Mean Girls film is in cinemas from January 11th, and is inspired by the 2018 Broadway Musical also written by Tina Fey, which is a twist on the original 2004 movie.

About Mean Girls:

New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.
