    I don`t remember Donuts... but I definitely remember Doughnuts. Damned Americans and your being too lazy to spell things.

    "Glazed yeast raised ring" sounds like a medical diagnosis of an embarrassing personal problem, not a scrummy confection.

    Remember when Donuts were called Doughnuts? Oh, and I just read your post andynaylor. That`s one critique of Americans that I can concur with.

    looks like Randall`s packaging (Safeway up north?), if you`ve ever shopped in those stores, they try to make it upscale. "donuts" is what poor people eat...

    Maybe there`s too much bug parts to legally call them donuts.

    Remember when `donuts` were spelled `doughnuts`? Or is it a Canadian thing?

    No, they`ve been called `donuts` ever since Noah Webster (dictionary dude) rewrote the American dictionary because he knew the Yanks were retards. Hence why particular words (e.g. coloUr) were rewritten in an easier way :-)

    True story!

    Because those are a yeast ring and a donut or however you feel it should be spelled is what is now called a cake donut and there is a huge difference. I don`t like those and they used to be called glazed donuts but I like the fact they are not called a donut now because to me they aren`t one only the cake donut is worthy of the name.

    @randall14. Up here, Safeway has the rep of being the rich man`s grocery store...upscale, stuffy, in-store Starbucks, etc. and their prices tend to reflect this....
