Harry Potter Fans Will Be Able to Buy Butterbeer Doughnuts Soon
The magic of Harry Potter is coming to Sugar Shack Donuts.
The chain’s Virginia Beach location recently unveiled an upcoming flavor that will be familiar to fans of the J.K. Rowling books and films: butterbeer. Inspired by the drink sold in the wizard village of Hogsmeade, the doughnuts look absolutely delicious. Not only are they covered in glaze, gold sprinkles, and stars, the sweet treats are topped with golden snitches made from doughnut holes. Yum.
The Virginia Beach shop’s Instagram account showed them off on in early October, teasing that they’d be available later in the month.
“Yes, we will have Butterbeer Donuts this month, but no we don’t yet,” the caption read. “In the meantime, bring your favorite HP novel for a free house donut today. Physical books only, no ebooks.”

The doughnuts are expected to be in short supply once they launch, the shop told Hello Giggles. The Virginia Beach location so far only plans to sell them on a limited number of dates: Oct. 14, 15, 21, and 22. Those hoping to try the butterbeer doughnuts are advised to call ahead.
Ah, if only we could summon them. We might just have to enjoy the doughnuts via pictures and envy the lucky Muggles who get to eat them.
