Mythical Mermaid Donuts

Karma Baker Created a Mermaid Donut to Mark National Mermaid Day

— September 12, 2017 — Lifestyle
In celebration of National Mermaid Day, Los Angeles vegan bakeshop Karma Baker is launching a fun mermaid donut in collaboration with professional Mermaid Linden Wolbert, who is known as the "highest-paid mermaid in the world." As a mermaid-for-hire, Wolbert devotes her time to promoting ocean conservation initiatives and performing at special events around the world.

The special-edition mermaid donut is being produced in buttermilk and white chocolate, as well as chocolate and dark chocolate flavors, both of which are topped with sprinkles and a novelty mermaid tail decoration.

Rather than being fixated by unique ingredient combinations, many consumers are instead interested in food and beverages with unique appearances, especially treats that take inspiration from mythical creatures and embrace photo-worthy multi-colored designs.
Trend Themes
1. Mythical Creature-inspired Food - There is a growing demand for food and beverages with unique appearances that take inspiration from mythical creatures, presenting opportunities for creative and visually appealing products.
2. Photo-worthy Treats - Consumers are increasingly interested in treats that are visually captivating and suitable for taking photos, creating opportunities for innovative and Instagrammable food and beverage offerings.
3. Collaborations with Influential Personalities - Collaborating with influential personalities, such as professional Mermaid Linden Wolbert, can create buzz and attract attention to special edition products, leading to increased brand awareness and consumer interest.
Industry Implications
1. Bakery - The bakery industry can capitalize on the demand for mythical creature-inspired food by creating innovative and visually stunning treats that appeal to consumers' desire for unique appearances.
2. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry can leverage the trend of photo-worthy treats by developing products that are visually captivating and shareable on social media, driving engagement and brand exposure.
3. Event Management - Event management companies can explore collaborations with influential personalities in order to create unique and themed experiences that generate excitement and attract attendees.
