What do donuts, pizza and the Pokemon Go app all have in common? Each are working to bring the longtime cartoon to life.

Sip n' Dip Donuts in St. Cloud realized they were a Pokestop  as customers came in catching Pokemon near a mural at their store on Saturday.

The store decided they wanted to created an edible way for customers to enjoy Pokeballs, besides catching them in the app.

“I find that this is more of a bonding experience for parents and for kids as well,” donut decorator, Liz Ellison, said.

This is not the only Pokestop in town, and Ellison said the lake near the store is another hotspot that for players, as well.

“It’s good to see. We absolutely and 100 percent support it,” Ellison continued.

In Winter Garden, the Winter Garden Pizza Company will start selling a Pokemon pizza on Wednesday for $20 each.

The creation of the pizza came from the public relations and advertising manager on Tuesday night.

As for both businesses, they will continue to sell Pokeball-inspired food.

"As long as the Pokemon craze is in effect," Debbie Lizkey, manager  of Winter Garden Pizza Company said.

As of today, Sip n' Dip Donuts has sold five dozen Pokemon inspired donuts.
