To celebrate #NationalDonutDay, the crew of NBC 5 Today is sharing their favorite donut flavors. We have a list of freebie deals for you too!
Samantha Davies: I love plain with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. So pretty and yummy!
Deborah Ferguson: Oh, my gosh, I really love donuts, and the second I eat one – and a second is all I takes to gobble one – another one and another one follows. My favorites: chocolate frosted, jelly filled and Boston Kreme. Why those three? Let me try one of each to remind me.
Katy Blakey: Blueberry! Because it’s got fruit so it must be healthy, right?
Courtney Gilmore: I love a Shipley’s glazed donut. If I’m feeling “fancy free” and want to throw my diet out of the window, I’ll go for a donut with pink icing and sprinkles. I also love cake donuts with cinnamon sugar, or cake donuts with glazed icing. (if you can’t tell, I love sweets. I literally could go on, and on, and on:-)
Ben Russell: I like maple glazed. I’m not a “donut guy” but it is *very* difficult for me to not grab a maple donut when I spot one.
Keisha Burns: I'm a big fan of Maple Bar donuts because they taste as yummy as they smell.
Evan Anderson: Glazed. Simple and always good. It’s best when a little warm, or fresh from the bakery! It’s way too much going on with these donuts - but I’m always down to try!
Samantha Chatman: It depends on my mood. If I'm feeling good, I'll take glaze. If I need an extra pick-me-up, gimme dat chocolate Long John!
Marc Fein: I have two! Standard chocolate glazed and the Apple Fritter. I can’t have just one. If I’m doing donuts I’m doing one of each. The theory is.. I love the fritter, but I always need chocolate!!
Grant Johnston: Apple Fritter – because it’s got just the right balance of apple and fritter. Oh yeah…and lots of sugar too!
Larry Collins: I’m a huge fan of apple fritters. It’s the best of all worlds; you get the donut taste, the cinnamon roll taste and apples. There’s fruit in it, so it’s healthy right? Right?!? ;-) (Best I’ve had is from Baugher’s Orchard in Westminster, MD)
Tim Ciesco: My favorite donut flavor is basically ANYTHING Hurts Donut Company in Frisco makes! I love that their donuts have all kinds of crazy toppings and fillings, because sometimes I want more than regular old glazed or chocolate!
