Instead of latkes and matzo ball soup, those celebrating Hanukkah can head to Burger King Israel for an usual holiday treat dubbed the 'SufganiKing.' Though not a traditional Jewish delicacy, this savory sandwich certainly makes for a memorable holiday meal.

The SufganiKing, is a limited-edition treat introduced by Burger King Israel specifically for Hanukkah. The burger itself consists of two donut buns topped with a flame-grilled beef patty, onions, pickles, tomato, mayonnaise and ketchup. The use of donuts instead of normal burger buns was chosen as a play on 'sufganiyah,' which are the the round, jelly-filled donuts that are popular during Hanukkah. However, the Burger King version of the donuts are filled with ketchup, for a more savory twist on the tradition.

For those interested in sampling this unique fast food delicacy, the SufganiKing is available now until January 1st, 2017 -- which is the last day of Hanukkah this year.
