It’s National Donut Day

National Donut Day | Rochester MN Moms Blog

 

National Donut day.  My favorite day of the year!  Not that I need an excuse to eat a donut.  I think donuts are an essential part of life.

 

Let’s review some of the basic categories of the donut ….

1. Sprinkles (Party time!) – For days when all you need is to celebrate…

2. Chocolate (aka the PMS antidote) – For when what you need is a little comfort.

…… Or a lot of comfort (a lot of PMS)

3. Filled – For when you need to jam out.  (Get it?)

4. The non-donut donut.  (No hole? No problem!) For when you need something a little outside of the norm.

P.S. My favorite is a plain cake donut, dipped in coffee, loaded with cream and sugar.

    By far – a filled donut!! Preferably Boston Creme but I wouldn’t say no to another fruit filed 🙂

    My favorite donut in the whole world is a cream filled chocolate long john (specifically from a donut joint in Indiana called the Donut Bank!!)

      Nice! I think the cream filed long john has better proportions of creme to donut than the circle donut? Your take?

    My favorite of all time was at a shop by my grandmas house when I was little. It was a cake donut, covered in chocolate icing dipped in a mix of peanuts AND toasted coconut!

    Chocolate cake or anything with spriinkles. If I could find a chocolate cake with spriinkles, my life would be complete.
