I've always wanted to do this, but haven't yet because the donut etiquette was unclear to me.

So, I usually grab a donut hole or two if they are available, or a plain cake donut. (I love dunking the plain cake ones in my hot drink. )
I personally see no problem with doing that. I do it myself and make sure that my fingers do not come into contact with the food. I don't believe in wasting and if I know that I am not going to eat what I put on my plate then it doesn't make it to my plate.


My favorites are maple bars, bear claws and glazed old-fashioned.

[quote=theatergypsy;31816504]I like a fresh Krispy Kreme glazed. It's a 20 minute drive to the nearest one, so I don't have them often.

Our local market has a yummy glazed apple fritter and I enjoy one of those from time to time.

In my limited experience, when I was working and a man brought a box of doughnuts to the office, they invariably had frosting with sprinkles. I know little kids like anything with sprinkles, (you say no? Try putting them on their mashed potatoes!) but I always thought they grew out of that phase.


Yep anything with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. The inner child dictates, I listen

Glazed, cruellers, buttermilk are my favorites. If they were very fresh/warm nothing beats a plain cake donut but that's not usually what comes in a box....

I avoid the sprinkled ones and anything with maple.

No no no.

Treat it like a group buy. You can't cut up half a cow, and leave the other half waiting for someone else.

Find someone who will agree to split it with you.

How is the next person supposed to know no one has touched it? Is there a certificate from the health department saying the doughnut is guaranteed to be sanitary?

I'll usually go for the plainest piece of fried dough in the box or i'll take whatever is left over after everyone else has made their selection.

While I tend to agree with your first points, I can't help but wonder where you are getting your donuts that apparently come with a certification from the health department guaranteeing they are sanitary prior to cutting?
