Happy National Doughnut Day, people! Hopefully you’ve been hogging your office supply and nabbing mad freebies at stores all day long—if not, you’ve still got some time to catch up.
But as we Americans celebrate yet another awesomely inane, made-up
excuse to binge eat food holiday, it’s important to note that there is a whole world of glorious fried dough out there beyond our borders—from the jelly-filled beauties of Israel to the sweet potato doughnuts of Malaysia. Needless to say, we aren’t the only folks to realize the genius of fried dough and sugar. So next time you’re in a foreign country, go ahead and try the local doughnut. Chances are, you’ll be pretty pleased with the results.
