Walter Simon, a master confectioner, and owner of Confiserie and Café Simon, located in Passau, Germany, offers his customers an unusual “vaccine”. One for the freshly baked donuts he provides. His initiative is meant to counteract negative news about the coronavirus vaccine, according to Euronews.
The client can “vaccinate” his donut in the shop or purchase a jam-filled syringe to take home. Customers can choose from 12 flavors of “vaccine”, among which pineapple, egg liqueur, white chocolate, classic apricot, plum jam, and rosehip, says the owner of Confiserie and Café Simon and adds: “We really have a great selection”. Moreover, clients get a “vaccination certificate” along with the “vaccinated baked goods”.
Walter Simon is not the only German confectioner to get inspiration from the pandemic. Tim Kortuem, the owner of the Schuerner’s Baking Paradise, located in Dortmund, is celebrating the year of the coronavirus vaccine with syringe-shaped cakes, which are flavored with marzipan. “First we were a bit skeptical whether it would be a bit too macabre,” Kortuem said. “But then we did it after all. Because even for anti-vaxxers it’s funny. It is a vaccine without any side effects. And you can come back and get another one because it is so yummy”, he added.
