Philly donut shop selling ‘Tom Brady’s Butterfinger’ to troll Pats QB (pic)
A vegan donut shop in Philly has introduced a new item to troll New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady over an ill-fated play during Sunday’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
Dubbed the “Tom Brady’s Butterfinger,” the item from Dottie’s Donuts mocks the Patriots quarterback’s inability to corral a pass on a trick play in Sunday’s loss.

The play in question occurred during the second quarter. Brady had handed the ball off to James White who in turn lateraled it to Danny Amendola, whose pass bounced off Brady’s outstretched hands.

Here’s what Dottie’s Donuts co-owner Jeff Poleon cheekily had to say about the trolling treat.
“Our inspiration for this donut was Tom Brady’s performance during the Super Bowl.” Poleon told LIVEKINDLY. “Additional inspiration came from the way Foles handled the ball. Watching Foles defeat Brady we knew we had to do one final Super Bowl themed donut. It is too SWEET of an opportunity and we couldn’t let it slip through our fingers!”
As Poleon alludes to, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, unlike Brady, was able to corral a catch of his own on a trick play. To add insult to injury, Foles’ reception was for a touchdown, something that inspired an Eagles fan to get a pretty cool tattoo.
As noted, Dottie’s Donuts is a vegan establishment, so “Tom Brady’s Butterfingers” isn’t made with ingredients one would typically associate with an item bearing such a name. Instead, the treat “is a yeast raised donut with our chocolate glaze dipped in a house made crumbed butterfinger candy.”
“It will be a lot a better than Tom Brady was last night,” Poleon added, via Boston.com.
Given Brady’s rigid dietary regimen, it’s conceivable the vegan donut created in his “honor” is something the Pats signal-caller may actually eat. Not that Brady probably has any plans to visit the City of Brotherly Love anytime soon.
