National Cream-Filled Donut Day

"Mr. Scorpio says productivity is up 2%, and it's all because of my motivational techniques, like donuts and the possibility of more donuts to come."- Homer Simpson

It's National Cream-Filled Donut Day!

If there's one food I've been celebrating my entire life, it's definitely cream-filled donuts. It was one of my first favorite things to eat when I started chowing down on more than just gooby food. According to my mom, when I was in my "doh-doh" days she would take me to the local coffee and donut shop to get one chocolate cream-filled donut and one regular cream-filled donut. She'd cut them in half so we could each enjoy a side. I, however, would squish the two halves together to make one donut and eat it as such.

"You did a helluva job, but it was so messy that after a few times you decided to just get a Boston Cream because to you it tasted exactly the same. Just with less mess," my mom said. "Personally, I don't think cream-filled donuts and Boston Cream donuts taste anything alike, but try telling that to a determined three year old!"

How could I not celebrate with a Boston Cream today? And to be honest, I didn't even know the aforementioned story until AFTER I had purchased one!

Happy National Cream-Filled Donut Day!
