Let's make #lildonutsunday a permanent thing.

Ahead of his stop at Tampa's Amalie Arena, heartthrobby singer-songwriter John Mayer captioned an Instagram shot of some miniature doughnuts with "lil' donut sunday." The photo was posted as part of his "story" on Sunday afternoon.

What CL is sure he meant by that purple-colored caption was "Your doughnuts are a wonderland." But in any case, it's kinda fun to imagine Mayer downing more than a few of the locally made morsels (like so many of us Tampa Bay residents have ourselves) before hopping on stage to support his new LP, The Search For Everything — even if the box of minis is virtually anonymous.

Review: In Tampa, John Mayer and an all-star band treat nearly 12,000 fans to a pop-perfect, introspective set (w/photos + setlist)

This food editor had a feeling these were the signature style of South Tampa-born Mini Doughnut Factory (that has to be a strawberry cheesecake in the bottom right corner), whose second location should open to St. Petersburg by the third or fourth week of September. So, I messaged Mini Doughnut Factory co-owner Patrick Ruddell to ask if the minis in question came from his crew, to which he replied:

"Haha... yes they are our minis. How cool is that?!"

There you go, people. The Truth About John's 'Nuts Doughnuts.
