Food for Thought


Just two months after Universal Orlando debuted the first phase of their Springfield expansion dubbed Fast Food Boulevard, the Orlando theme park opened more “The Simpsons” food chains for guests to drool over.

Across from the already popular establishments Moe’s Tavern and Krusty Burger, Universal Studios has now opened three more popular restaurants from the animanted TV show including Duff Gardens, Lard Lad Doughnuts and Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck. The newest additions are located alongside plenty of new photo ops and details about the long-running TV show. And while all of these new additions really make the area come together, there is one new establishment we really want to focus on today –Lard Lad’s Donut and it’s Pink Donut!

Towering high above the new area is the iconic Lard Lad’s Donut statue and beneath it sits a relatively small stand where you can purchase your favorite fried treats from the show including D’oh-nuts, Apple Fritters, Ice Cream Conans, Brain Freezin’ Sundaes and of course The Big Pink Donut.

You probably are familiar with The Big Pink Donut from Lard Lad Donut’s best customer, Chief Wiggum, who always seemed to choose eating one over doing his police duties. In fact, you can find Chief Wiggum with pink donut in hand outside of the establishment in front of his smashed cop car. And once you’ve had a Big Pink Donut, it’s easy to see why Chief Wiggum loves them so much.

It’s hard to find somebody who doesn’t enjoy a donut and it’s even harder to find somebody who doesn’t enjoy a donut with sprinkles. Lard Lad’s Pink Donut has both and is also tipped with delicious creamy pink frosting. They’re so sweet you’ll want to buy two!

And while you’re there don’t forget to try the delicious Apple Fritters, a jumbo style donut fritter with cinnamon and apples as well as the Brain Freezin’ Sundaes – chocolate or vanilla soft-serve with your choice of one topping. Toppings include caramel, hot fudge, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, peanuts, Reese’s Pieces and Oreo topping. They also have regular sized D’oh-nuts you can buy singles or a four park and the Brain Freezin’ D’oh-nut Sundae, which is a Brain Freezin’ Sundae of your choice, but with a D’oh-nut on top.

For more treats and dishes from The Simpsons make sure you check out Fast Food Boulevard and get a taste of Krusty Burger, Moe’s Tavern, Cletus’ Chicken Shack and more.

Lard Lad Donuts, Duff Gardens and Bumblebee Man’s Taco truck are the last of the food offerings to go into the new Springfield expansion. The area is now complete with the spinning attraction Kang and Kodos Twirl ‘n’ Hurl now open as well.
