You've heard of maple bacon donuts, but what about Swedish meatballs on top of the sweet treats? The latter has come to life thanks to a partnership between IKEA West Chester and Ohio's Butler County in honor of National Donut Day on June 3.

For a bit of background, Butler County is known for its 80-mile-long "Donut Trail" featuring 13 shops that sell the fried dessert rings. To make this year extra special, IKEA has agreed to join in on the fun by creating a Swedish meatball donut.

According to ​Food & Wine​, the new donut features "a light and fluffy base, lingonberry glaze, lingonberry sauce" that is "topped with a delectable IKEA meatball." For all the vegetarians and vegans out there, a plant-based meatball is also available.

While supplies last, the Swedish meatball donut will be offered at the West Chester IKEA location in Ohio on June 3 and 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The best part: They're free! So if you live in or near Butler County, or want to make the trip, make sure you give this interesting donut a try and report back.
