McDonald's Is Now Selling Cheesy Camembert-Filled Doughnuts
Doughnuts are good. Cheese is good. So surely if you put the two together you're only going to get something bloody wonderful, right?
Yep, CORRECT. As proven by the clever folk over at McDonald's, who have conjured up new 'Camembert Doughnuts', made from real Camembert that's breaded up, deep-fried and transformed into deliciously crispy, golden doughnuts filled with oozy melted cheese.
Camembert, which tastes a bit like Brie and is often served in similar ways, is made from cow's milk and has become a bit of a favourite among fromage fans.
Usually, it's found nestled on a cheeseboard or baked in the oven for a gooey starter - but we're excited to see that people are finding brand new ways to get creative with it.
McDonald's Germany, where the Camembert Doughnuts can be found, describes them as 'a hearty side dish' that is 'crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside'.
Consider us well and truly sold - fingers crossed that they'll be rolling the product out worldwide soon. In the meantime, it's a good excuse to finally have that long weekend in Germany, right?
These cheese doughnuts come in a box of seven and include two packets of cranberry sauce for dunking. The new side costs €3.99 (£3.50/$4.75), which sounds like a good investment when it's deep-fried cheese we're talking about.

And they might not even be that bad for you. Well, kind of - because one man who ate nothing but McDonald's for a week actually managed to lose weight.
Inspired by the documentary Super Size Me, 33-year-old YouTuber Mike Jeavons wanted to see if it was possible to maintain a balanced diet, sticking to the recommended guidelines for calories, salt and fat, while eating nothing but food from McDonald's.
Mike said: "I thought the documentary was a little sensationalised. If you're eating about 5,000 calories a day, then of course you're going to put on weight and find your well-being affected.
"But I wanted to stick to the daily recommended amounts of things like calories, fat and salt, to see if I could have a balanced diet eating at just one outlet and still end up happy and full at the end of it all."
By the end of the week he was seriously craving a home-cooked meal - but made sure he ended the challenge with his largest meal of the week, a quarter pounder with cheese.
Weighing himself at the end of the week, he was astonished to find he had shed 5lb (2.2kg) going from 15st7lb (99kg)to 15st2lb (96kg).
