A donut is a tasty treat that many people love to eat!
Did you know that donuts can come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and flavors?
They are usually round with a hole in the middle, but you can find some in fun shapes like stars and hearts too.
Donuts have a long history and no one is really sure where they started.
Some say they come from Holland, where people would fry dough in oil during tough winters.
Other people believe a sailor from New England invented them when he put a nut in the middle of dough to make it cook evenly.
One thing we do know is that donuts became really popular in America after World War I.
A company called the Salvation Army used to give out donuts to soldiers in the war as a treat.
Ever since then, the donut has been a beloved snack in America and around the world.
