Burger King in Israel is getting into the holiday spirit by offering a hamburger inside the traditional Hanukkah donut known in Hebrew as sufganiya, Ynet News reported on Tuesday.

The new concoction, called the "SufganiKing," will be available at the burger chain's outlets during the Hanukkah holiday, which runs December 25 to January 1. It consists of Burger King's standard Whopper, placed between two halves of the oily dessert.

"This matching of two popular Israeli food items was inevitable for us," said Israeli Burger King CEO Steve Ben Shimol, Ynet reported. "We're proud to be able to end 2016 on a creative, festive note."
