Marriott’s Greatest Dessert Ever

Yesterday, I wrote a post in defense of Marriott. Today, well, I’m not sure…

Donut Disturb

I’m assuming that this is one of those products created to generate publicity, like the $5,000 hamburger or the Golden Opulence Sundae.

Yes, all your decadent dreams can now come true as you and 37 friends munch on a 10-pound doughnut, delivered directly to your room at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa. And you can’t spell “Funfetti doughnut” without “fun” or, for that matter, “fet,” which sounds like the French word for party, “fête.”

And what will this treat cost you? That’s the best part. It’s a measly $219, and not only does it come with a couple of milkshakes but you’ll also get a $50 hotel credit which can be used for hotel dining if you’re still hungry. And while $219 may sound like a lot of money, consider this: The average doughnut weighs about an ounce and costs about $1.25. So ten pounds of doughnuts, or 160 of the suckers, would run you $200 at your average Dunkin Donuts. So for the additional $19, you are getting two shakes and $50. That is a deal if I’ve ever heard one.

Okay, technically it’s not a doughnut, but rather, a cake with a coffee lacquer to give it that new-doughnut smell (or appearance, as the case may be). But hey, anything that comes with sprinkles the size of a tricycle can call itself whatever it wants.

And the Credit Cards Are Back!

After a discussion with my credit card affiliate, I once again have links to credit cards. The site is still under construction, but you can get cards through the “Find Your Adventure Faster” banner on the Credit Cards for Charity page.

As a reminder, when you get a card through my link, it generates a commission. All commissions are donated to charity. For the past several years, all proceeds have gone to Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit that has received four stars from Charity Navigator. Cradles to Crayons provides kids with free essentials, such as clothes and school supplies. So the next time you need a credit card, I hope you’ll visit the page and do well by doing good.
