Oh, doughnut. How I love thee. You see, my love for this oh-so-sweet snack is pretty deep.

Every day seems to be a food holiday, but today happens to be a bit near and dear to my belly.

It’s National Doughnut Day, people!

To set the mood for this writing session, I warmed up a glazed doughnut from DG Doughnuts, and I must say it was definitely good.

Who knew these fried pieces of goodness had so much history? Dating back to the 1800s, doughnuts can be found around the globe in various countries from Israel to Finland.

Round, square, long, glazed, sprinkles, stuffed, plain— they really do come in all shapes and sizes.

Here in Central Florida, local bakeries are getting onboard with what food enthusiasts are craving and dishing out some unique sweets. Now I know that I didn’t include every shop. I’ve only included the ones I’ve visited, so please comment with your favorite spot.
