Enjoy your snacks at any time. Even in the dead of night.

Sometimes midnight snacking has its drawbacks. You have to get out of bed, for one. Then walk all the way to the kitchen. Find your beloved snack item.

Then, after everything, you have to find the capacity to get back in bed.

And all along this snack quest you might actually have to face the harsh, cruel reality of a lamp light. Not anymore.

Black Star Pastry in Sydney, Australia, has the perfect midnight snack: glow-in-the-dark donuts. But they call them glownuts.

Even though they look radioactive, don’t worry: They’re totally, 100 percent edible and they sound absolutely delicious. The classic donuts are topped with yuzu icing and loaded with vitamin B, which is what gives their tops the bright, green glow. No added food coloring or dyes (or uranium).

“We thought it would be fun to see people with glow-in-the-dark icing all over their hands and faces, so doughnuts were the natural choice,” store owner Christopher Té told Daily Mail Australia.

The treats are currently only sold at the pop-up Glow Cave Dessert Bar at Sydney’s Vivid festival. But who knows, maybe they’ll become a staple at the bakery too, one day.
