I’d like you to take a moment to think about your troubles. What’s really bothering you? Job? Money? Football? What about transporting donuts?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but transporting a single donut is really difficult. You can put it in a wax sleeve but, then, it can be crushed. A box? Overkill. A waste. What this world needs is a solution to this pressing problem. And now, we have it.

It’s Doughnut-to-Go. For just $11.50, you can forever protect your donut – and I mean really protect it. You want it sealed in a custom-sized plastic container? That’s a good start. What if there was a spot for a nametag? Now you’re talking. And oh yeah, it can be locked. You can attach a lock to the Doughnut-to-Go so no one can open it and take your donut.

Think about that for a minute.

Of course it comes with vents to keep your donut warm and fresh. It’s microwaveable and dishwasher-safe. And just-because-why-not, it has a lollipop holder. Sure.

Truly, this (surprise) Japanese innovation is something else. I’m curious who can’t afford not to buy this. All of you who bring single donuts everywhere: isn’t this perfect? Isn’t this just what you want – nay – need? I say so.
