The man who makes Irn-Bru doughnuts
Scotland loves Irn-Bru
As a nation, Scotland has some little quirks that are nothing but charming. Their football league has provided all of us with hour-after-hour of hilarity, they have a special way with swearwords, and they absolutely love an orange-coloured carbonated drink that the rest of the world has yet to fall in love with.
That drink is Irn-Bru, and it is a Scottish institution. The Scots absolutely love it, and one Scot has decided to use the drink to make some other culinary marvels.
Peter Gilchrist runs a blog called Tenement Kitchen, and he came up with the novel idea of using the flavour of Irn-Bru on doughnuts. By reducing the drink down to a syrup, Gilchrist has created a very Scottish version of one of the world's most loved pastries.
Is it up there with the peculiar delight of a deep-fried Mars bar? You'll have to taste it to find out.
"Scottish people are so emotionally connected to Irn-Bru. It's something that has added to our identity as a nation."@IrnBru is one of Scotland's greatest cultural exports - and ultimate hangover cures. Now it's available in doughnut form. pic.twitter.com/uMxi4Z6yBQ
