About This Quiz

Everyone loves doughnuts! These treats, made of fried dough, are popular dessert foods that are served all over the world and are in bakeries, supermarkets, street vendors, and more. The traditional doughnut is round and has a tiny hole in the middle, but more recently, the whole, jelly-filled ones have become acceptable (and why would they not be?).

The first time a doughnut was mentioned in history was in the early 19th century: they were said to have been brought to New York by early Dutch settlers. An American named Hanson Gregory said it was he who invented the ring-shaped doughnut, with an elaborate story about him being on a ship and punching a hole into the confection. 

Whoever invented it, tastes incredible and is now offered in many flavors, with just as many toppings and fillings. Some of the most popular ones include the glazed doughnut, the jelly doughnut, the sugar doughnut, and the frosted doughnut. They are often topped with sugar, sprinkles, syrup, and just about any other sweet item you can think of. 

So which one of these doughnuts are you?
