Tiger tail donut

A glazed tiger tail that is shorter and has less twists than most tiger tails

A tiger tail donut (also called tiger tail doughnut or simply tiger tail) is a donut that is twisted with another ingredient so that it looks like the tail of a tiger. This other ingredient may vary; examples include chocolate;[1] chocolate-flavoured dough;[2] a combination of chocolate and cinnamon;[3] and a combination of cinnamon, apples, and coconut.[4] The tiger tail is the second most popular donut at The Donut Man in Glendora, California, United States, surpassed only by the shop's signature donut: the strawberry donut.[1] In 2010, Dunkin' Donuts locations in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia sold tiger tails to celebrate the Year of the Tiger.[5] Erin Allday of The Press Democrat called the tiger tail the "most unusual donut" at the Donut Hut in Santa Rosa, California.[6]
