Bomboloni; What Are They & How Are They So Damn Tasty?


Happy National Donut Day! Or in our case, Happy Bomboloni Day? That’s right, the Italian doughnuts, Bomboloni, are a true (and tasty) piece of Italian history, and we are here to celebrate them in all their fluffy glory. 

The Lowdown

Depending on where you find yourselves in Italy, the doughnut varies in name and method. Otherwise known as ‘la bomba’, the Roman variant is kneaded with butter, while the Tuscan variant uses lemon zest; is kneaded using lard; left to rise for about an hour; and then fried in rapeseed oil. But the most particular difference is the filling - being cream, chocolate or whipped cream.

At Coco di Mama we have our own twist on the famous Italian doughnut, and whilst ours is more alike the Roman version, our vegetarian Bombolonis are filled with an indulgent Biscoff spread that will be sure to charm your taste buds, 'til the very last bite.


For one day only in homage of National Donut Day and lovely lil hole foods everywhere, we're giving away free Bomboloni with every order made through Coco Collect and Deliveroo on June 4th.

Ordering for collection from one of our London stores? Be sure to add your Bomboloni to your meal then enter BISCOFFBLISS at the checkout and we'll handle the rest!

Or if you're having a Deliveroo kind of day, simply place your order with us and we'll throw in your cheeky treat alongside your meal - no code required.


The treats dont't stop there!

On days which aren't dedicated to the humble donut (our least favourite days) and from as little as £2.50, you can enjoy these fan-favourite doughnuts in bundles of 3 (Bomboloni Trio), or make it a Mega Bomboloni Party with 9 of the lil guys - because more is most certainly merrier.

Whether you’re sharing with your better half or just indulging on your own (no judgements here), be sure to add our Bombolonis to the guest list and enjoy digging into the perfect dessert for any occasion.

Mangiamo baby!

(That’s ‘Let’s Eat’ in Italian). 

So if the sound of our Bombolonis tickles your fancy, you’ll want to keep your retinas peeled for new chocolate flavours dropping very soon – join Club Coco for all the updates you need!
