In case Chicagoans didn’t hear—and with this week’s media blitz it’s hard to escape the news—a Rolling Stones exhibit is invading Navy Pier starting on Saturday, showcasing a myriad of trinkets from the iconic rock band’s 55-year-career. In honor of the exhibit, which enjoyed a successful New York run and starts Monday in Chicago, the organizers of Rolling Stones Exhibitionism are collaborating with Stan’s Donuts & Coffee on a lip-smacking limited edition doughnut celebrating the band.
The Rolling Stones doughnut looks like a piece of art, featuring a sugary facsimile of the band’s iconic Hot Lips logo, air-brushed on a Bismark doughnut filled with raspberry jam and finished with a vanilla glaze. Stan’s will limit sales to one doughnut per customer and they’ll be available from Monday through April 30 as daily supplies last at all Stan’s locations (yes, including the Streeterville spot near Navy Pier). They’ll cost $4.39 each.
Stan’s reps say the event organizers wanted to partner with them because they are a creative local-based company. The band isn’t a stranger to food and drink capitalizing on the brand, as visitors at last year’s Chicago Gourmet festival in Millennium Park may have stumbled upon a Rolling Stones-themed tequila Jose Cuervo reps were serving under one of the tents.
