When the blink-182 tour came to Los Angeles on Friday 09/30 and Saturday 10/01, we wanted to do something special. We called up Mark Trombino who runs the best donut shop in town DONUT FRIEND (some of you may recognize the name from blink-182's early Dude Ranch album as their producer). We asked Mark if he could come up with a signature donut for us, something cool for the LA Forum shows. A true limited edition as only 50 would be made each day. Mark, not missing a beat, said "let's do a Hi My Name Is BisMARK"

For those of you not well-versed in all things donut, a bismark or also known as a Berliner Pfannkuchen (Berliner for short) is a traditional German pastry similar to a donut with no central hole, made from sweet yeast dough fried in oil, with a marmalade or jam filling and usually icing, powdered sugar or conventional sugar on top. They are sometimes made with chocolate, champagne, custard, mocha filling, or with no filling at all. Our exclusive HI My Name Is Bismark would be made with Vanilla or Carmel glaze and a light vanilla custard filling. 

The first person to try one of our bisMARKs.

Now, if you purchased a bisMARK, and posted a picture of it to Instagram with the tags #donutfriend and #octopusdonut, you were automatically entered into a drawing for a Joe Ledbetter complete skateboard.

The big prize for those that entered, was a signed Joe Ledbetter skateboard, with all the stuff, provided by our friends over at Pig Wheels and Bro Style

And the winner is.....

Eddie email with your details on how we get you your prize. Congrats! and thanks to everyone that came out to Donut Friend!
