“Let me tell you, I’m not sure if America runs on donuts, but I sure do! Nothin’ like a little simple sugar icing to get the blood pumping at 9:00 A.M.”
~ Chris Benz
They sit amongst the others, crowned kings among the more plebian cake doughnuts and simple glazed. Cream-filled Doughnuts are truly the treasure trove of doughnut kind, the one true doughnut, the hopes and dreams that all other doughnut-kind aspire to be. Cream-Filled Doughnut Day holds this truth to be self-evident, and celebrates these wonderful confections by encouraging everyone to consume them until they burst! (Just kidding, eat responsibly kids!)
History of Cream-Filled Doughnut Day
Cream-Filled Doughtnut Day was established to raise these incredible doughnuts to the place they deserve, a day dedicated to their delicious construction and the dreamlike consistency of their fillings. While it may seem overly simplistic to refer to simply ‘Cream-Filled Doughnuts’ as being supreme, that just means that an education is in order. Cream is not just a white substance sweetened and flavored like vanilla, that is but the foundation of the mounts of glory these doughnuts can achieve.
In the mood for something citrus? Something with a bit of zing? There are lemon-creme filled doughnuts that contain potent little flecks of lemon zest, enough to brighten up the sweetness of the doughnut and render them positively up-lifting. Prefer the tart sweetness of raspberries? Raspberry creme exists as well, and those doughnuts filled with it are a delight for those who love this berry-laden fruit.
Cream-Filled Doughnut Day reminds you that there is ever so much more to a doughnut than a cakey-consistency an da sugary glaze. Sometimes the best part of a doughnut is what’s inside, just like with people. Perhaps we should all aspire to find the cream-filled doughnut in the people around us. Who knows what secrets they hold!
How to Celebrate Cream-Filled Doughnut Day
Just take a quick trip down to your local bakery or Dunkin’ Donuts, and ask them to trot out their favorite cream-filled doughnuts for you to peruse! Lemon-creme and chocolate-creme, strawberry-creme and raspberry, these are just the beginning of the nearly limitless variety of cream-filled doughnuts you can find. We suggest starting simply, however, and enjoying the Boston Creme Donut, easily one of the most delicious varieties of Cream-Filled Doughnut around. Ask your friends to bring their favorite creme doughnuts to work and have everyone share in the bounty!
