Huddersfield offered a sweet treat ahead of play-off clash

Huddersfield Town fans can indulge in a sweet treat ahead of the Championship play-off clash on Monday.

DELICIOUS doughnuts which have been enjoyed by Love Island contestants, Olympians and even members of the Royal family are being sold for the first time in Huddersfield.

The brightly-coloured handcrafted treats are made by Project D, a Derby-based bakery which has produced a limited edition Huddersfield Town doughnut, which goes on sale on Monday ahead of the crucial second-leg of the Championship play-offs.

The company, which has 140k followers on Instagram, has previously been commissioned to create doughnuts for a Love Island after show party, for London Fashion Week and an order was even placed for staff and residents at Windsor Castle.

Now the company, which changes the flavours of its doughnuts every four weeks and also offers a vegan range, is visiting the town for the first time selling outside the John Smith Stadium from 4pm on May 16.

“For some time now our doughnuts have been available online, for people to have delivered to their doors. But we love attending events, which is how the company started, and this will be our first trip up the M1 to Huddersfield.

“We know Monday is a really important day for the town and hope that our limit-edition blue and white treats, complete with the club’s crest, will fuel fans into cheering their side on to Wembley.”

Among the company’s most popular creations is the Homer, a ring doughnut with pink icing and sprinkles; the Biscoff with a caramel base and blended Lotus Biscoff crumb; and the Red Velvet, a white chocolate base, dipped in red velvet cake with lashing of white chocolate.

The firm has been commissioned by huge companies including Amazon, Coca-Cola, British Airways and Sainsbury’s and has recently collaborated with BrewDog to produce a doughnut flavoured beer.

The bakery has produced doughnuts for Olympic gold-medallist Adam Peaty, the cast and crew on Strictly Come Dancing and they were asked to create 60 doughnuts – complete with the royal crest – for Windsor Castle.

Operations Director Max commented: “We will never know if the Queen tried them, but we like to think Harry and Meghan might have shared one before they left for America, the home of doughnuts.”
