National Donut Day – America’s Favorite Type of Donuts

We’ve been looking forward to this day all year. Sure, we reflect our company mission in the 5 columns we live by (Do Good Work, Value Our Partners, Be Good To Each Other, Be Humble, and Experiment Often). But if we’re being honest—and hadn’t already ordered all the C5-branded stationery—we’re pretty tempted to add a sixth column: “Always Eat Donuts.” Donut consumption is a cornerstone of our studio; it’s a sacred practice all employees must abide.


That said, National Donut Day isn’t just another random event on the C5 calendar, it’s deep in our culture. It’s our collected birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, weddings, and anniversaries. The perfect pairing of pastry and frosting is easily one of the best combos in the history of the world. Sure, there’s peanut butter and jelly, Kobe and Shaq, fall and pumpkin spice lattes. But nothing comes close to the marriage of a hot, fresh cake drenched in warm, sugary frosting.

You can imagine our excitement when we found a data set shedding light on America’s favorite types of donuts. The urge to share wasn’t just an inclination; it’s a moral obligation. Check out the donut chart below to see a breakdown of the most preferred types of donuts across the U.S. And please tell us we’re not the only ones shocked by the sprinkle’s poor showing. (Who doesn’t prefer sprinkle donuts?!)
