Salty Donut Collaborates With Rob Gronkowski for the Gronk Box. Super Bowl LIV is less than two weeks away, and Miami is counting down to February 2. In the leadup to the big game, Miamians will be bombarded with football-themed beers, cocktails, and parties. But for now, there are doughnuts. The Salty Donut has collaborated with former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on the shop's new limited-edition Uber Eats x Gronk Box. The box, available through January 26, includes four Salty Donut creations, including a new flavor designed by Gronkowski himself: the Whipped Piña Colada, made with 24-hour brioche filled with piña colada whip, enveloped in coconut glaze, and topped with salted coconut streusel and a pineapple flower. The Gronk Box ($15) — containing two Whipped Piña Coladas and two traditional glazed doughnuts — is available exclusively through Uber Eats. (They are not available at the Salty Donut's shops in Wynwood and South Miami.) In addition to scoring four doughnuts, fans who order the box will automatically be entered to win a host of prizes delivered along with the boxes. Prizes include general admission tickets to Gronkowski's February 1 Super Bowl party, Gronk Beach; signed memorabilia; and football jerseys.
