Hot Pie From 'Game of Thrones' Opened A Bakery And Made Direwolf Loaves

Fans of carbs and Game of Thrones will be pleased to know that Hot Pie's Direwolf bread has made the jump from TV to real life.

Yup, Ben Hawkey - who plays Hot Pie in GoT - opened up his own bakery in conjunction with Deliveroo, called 'You Know Nothing Jon Dough', and made batches of the iconic Direwolf bread.

And don't worry, it looks a lot better than the one he gave to Arya in season three...

In fact, it looks fucking good. Check it out:

Ben's bakes were sold exclusively through Deliveroo on 17 July, when the new season premiered.

If you're wondering what it tastes likes, these real-life version are said to taste a lot better than their fantasy counterparts.

Ben said it's a whole-wheat cornbread with orange zest and that it should be enjoyed warm with butter. Who are we to argue?

He explained: "Hot Pie's Direwolf loaves are a favourite for Game of Thrones fans, and people are always asking me for the secret of my recipe.

"I can't share that, but Deliveroo customers will have the chance to try them themselves. You don't even need to take a dangerous walk down the King's Road to visit, it comes to you."

Of course, the bread, which was on offer for a quid a loaf, sold out almost straight away and the Deliveroo app is currently not taking any more orders.

Anyone else thinking we should start a targeted social media campaign to get it back?
