    It is either a donut or roll.. Don't make it so difficult

    This seems like a perfect Sunday topic and was reminded of this pet peeve I've mine this morning while picking up a Bismark from QT.

    I get to the register, and the cashier asked if I had a regular or big donut in the bag.

    huh? It is a Bismark, it is a not a donut. Donuts have holes in the middle of them. That why we have donut holes.

    Anything that is not a donut, is a roll. (BTW....QT lists this correctly as "rolls" on their signage, so this was a cashier thing, not QT's).

    I noticed this awhile ago in our cafeteria at work. In the area they keep the donuts and rolls, they posted a sign with the prices of donut and "big donuts".

    I'm curious now. Is this just a central Iowa thing or does this odd confusion exist elsewhere as well? I grew up in Minneapolis/northern Iowa and never came across this until locating to central Iowa.

    I agree with you, I've never heard of that before. A doughnut is a doughnut because of the hole.

    Actually in my opinion you are wrong. A donut is a breakfast food with frosting or a glaze on it.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    So a Poptart is a type of donut then?

    I'm not sure how to describe my categorization of donuts other than I lump Long Johns, Boston Creams, and Jelly-filled all in the "donut" category. Rolls include things like cinnamon buns, that don't have the donut taste and feel.

    I agree that a doughnut need not have a hole in the middle of it. For example: Cream, custard, and jelly fillings in doughnuts are common - would you call those "rolls" for some strange reason?

    What the heck is a bismark?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    NOT a donut, apparently.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    I think you're describe a cake donut vs a yeast donut (usually glazed donuts). The shape and hole make them a donut...not the taste or feel IMO.

    BTW...this link does somewhat go against my initial argument as they lump filled "donuts" in with traditional ring donuts.

    IMO, a long john is a donut. As is cream filled donuts, as they are called.
