Burger King restaurants in Israel have introduced a doughnut burger for the Hanukkah season, but don’t expect it to be on any lists of low-calorie holiday foods.

The SufganiKing is a Whopper with savory doughnuts in place of buns. Its name is a play on the Hebrew word for doughnuts, sufganiyot, which are ubiquitous on every Israeli street corner in the weeks leading up to Hanukkah.

The SufganiKing will be sold for about $4 and will be available through Jan. 1, the last day of Hanukkah, according to reports. — jta
