Today is National Doughnut Day, and as far as made up holidays go, this might be the best one of all. If you play it right and don't mind driving around, you can eat about 12,000 calories in donuts without spending a dime.

91% of Americans either love or like donuts, only 1% hate them. The most popular flavors are: glazed, Boston cream, chocolate frosted, jelly, chocolate cake, maple, blueberry, bear claw, powdered sugar, and pink frosted.
