Today (8 March) is International Women’s Day, and London-based doughnut chain Doughnut Time is marketing the occasion with a doughnut inspired by the movie Legally Blonde.

Doughnut Time has teamed up with milk and cookies bar Blondies Kitchen, also based in London, to create the Legally Blondie doughnut.

The doughnut is filled with cookie dough, glazed in white chocolate and finished with a caramel drizzle, caramel curls and mini cookies from Blondies Kitchen.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than by creating an over-the-top doughnut tribute to Legally Blonde, which is considered by many women as one of the greatest moments in feminist pop culture,” said Lara Thompson, creative pastry chef at Doughnut Time.

“Just like (Legally Blonde lead character) Elle Woods herself, our doughnut is ever-so stylish, extremely fun and not to be messed with.”

The Legally Blondie doughnut (rsp £4.50) will be available from Friday 8 to Thursday 14 March in all 11 Doughnut Time stores across London.
