These wonderfully weird movie food tie-ups will entertain you

Aside from that Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce, these exist

The weird and wonderful world of product placement and food tie-ups has resulted in some hilarious products. From doughnuts to chips and sandwiches: no food is sacred when it comes to sweet, sweet advertising dollars.

Here's our pick of the wacky results of some advertising executive's fevered dreams.

Power Rangers and Krispy Kreme

If there was an award for utter shamelessness, the Krispy Kreme tie-up for the Power Rangers movie wins it by a Zordon and a half.

Of course, there were actual Power Rangers doughunts (US and Canada only, boo) that had a special cream-filled shell, dipped in chocolate icing that was liberally sprinkled in silver glitter (edible, of course). These were all decorated with lightning bolt sugar decorations in pink, red, blue, black and yellow.

What sets this collab apart though is Krispy Kreme is even written heavily into the Power Rangers movie script and even has (spoiler alert), one of the baddies getting up close and personal with a Krispy Kreme doughnut. Krispy Kreme even sent out a press release announcing the opening of a fictional Krispy Kreme in the movie's universe. A+ for total commitment.
