Without reservation, the donut is my personal favorite when it comes to pastry. Donuts are depicted as a favorite among law enforcement personnel during their coffee break, but let’s face it… Everyone loves them.

My personal favorite is the Old Fashioned donut with no glaze. But whether you prefer the ring-type donut, ones infused with cream, custard, fruit preserves, or frosting with sprinkles on top I’ve got you covered with these donut caption and quotes. Snap a photo of any donut and post it on social media websites including Instagram with these taglines.

I come bearing donuts.

All sorts of spins on the donut have been brought to the United States by immigrants. Donuts are widely available in the United States with donut shops, gas stations, and most grocery stores carrying them. Some of the types enjoyed in the United States and Canada are Boston cream, cinnamon, frosted, chocolate, glazed, coconut, powdered, and jelly filled. You can even find donut holes and other creative twists on the pastry.

As of January 13, 2010, the Providence metropolitan area had the most donut stores per capita (25.3 donut shops per 100,000 residents) in the United States.

National Donut Day honors the donut’s historical and cultural significance. There is also a donut-themed event aptly named the “Tour de Donut” which is held in Staunton, Illinois each year. The Tour de Donut is a one-of-a-kind bicycle race in which your ability to eat donuts is as essential as the ability to ride a bike. Riders visit donut stations and consume donuts throughout the event. If you’ve ever participated in this event, let me know. I’d love to speak with you about it.
