Hot jam doughnuts might seem like a sweet, distant memory, but Cannoleria by That's Amore Cheese is here to not only fulfil those cravings, but to drop the cannoli and hot jam doughnut collaboration that we’ve only dreamt of.

The Hot Jam Donut Cannoli comes with That’s Amore Cheese ricotta filling which is infused with cinnamon doughnut crumbs and a sweet jam swirl.

Third Wave Café will have you getting ready to specky off the back of the nearest person to launch your cheese-filled syringe into a smoked brisket pie. You read that correctly. The star of the Grand Final Reheat-at-Home Box is Third Wave’s massive smoked brisket pie which comes with two giant syringes which you can use to inject cheese and barbecue sauce into the pie. 

It could feed six by itself, but don’t fret, the three different boxes also come with 450g of slow-smoked beef ribs, a whole rack of slow-smoked baby back pork ribs and 12 smoked wings. For sides, you get cowboy beans, eight pieces of cheesy cornbread, mac and cheese and a bottle of house-made spicy barbecue sauce. The packs start at $149 each, with the capacity to feed between four to ten people. Place your order here.
