(6:47 am EST) -- First there was Butterbeer. Then there was Butterbeer ice cream. Now there's... Butterbeer doughnuts! Sugar Shack Donuts is featuring the Butterbeer Donut at its locations on select dates in October.

The butterscotch-flavored donuts will feature white icing with gold stars and -- the best part -- an edible golden snitch in the middle.

According to a recent Sugar Shack Donuts Instagram post, the doughnuts are available by pre-order for pick-up on Oct. 14, 15, 21 and 22. Sugar Shack Donuts has 13 locations on the East Coast, many of them in Virginia.

Harry Potter fans are also encouraged to bring in a hard copy of one of their Harry Potter books in exchange for a free (non-Butterbeer) doughnut.
