MARKS and Spencer has been raising eyebrows after announcing a new line of Santa-themed donuts with an inadvertently “sexual” social media post.
Shoppers claim their tweet about the new festive yum-yum doughnut hybrid is laced with innuendo, after the retailer invited customers to take “a bite of Santa’s Yumnut”.
The “Christmassy” bakes were posted by M&S on Twitter this morning, who said: “Who wants a bite of Santa’s Yumnut™?
“Our yum yum-doughnut hybrids have been given a Christmassy makeover, with delicious flaky pastry layers and a sweet Santa’s belt topping.
“Find them in our in store bakery.”
However, the innocent post soon set minds racing with many suggesting their offer was “rude”.
It was retweeted more than a thousand times just an hour after being shared and has elicited some hilarious responses.
Author Caitlin Moran immediately quoted the tweet and said: “Pretty sure "Who wants a bite of Santa's Yumnut" is sexual.”
Journalist Michael Hogan added: “Weirdly, Santa Yumnut is my porn name.”
Sarah Louise Tyler joked: “Depends. Would it get me on the naughty or nice list? #ShockedAndAppalled”
Linda Robbins commented: “M&S pimping Santa out is not on my 2020 bingo card.”
Jake Hagain said: “Can’t wait for a mouthful of Santa’s Yumnut this festive holiday.”
Jarret King asked: "A bite of his what?"
And @ingiebeans replied: "M&S mere days away from rebranding as S&M at this rate."
