Why Do They Make Jelly Donuts?

We were lucky enough on the “Sean and Richie Show” to receive a dozen donuts from a guest who came in today. What struck me as odd was that, as I looked in the box, I thought, hey nice selections. You never know what your gonna get when someone brings in donuts but in this case there were lots of glazed, chocolate covered and Boston cremes, perfect. Then, I saw them. Tucked in the corner trying so hard to be inconspicuous were two powdered jelly donuts. Why? Who in the world thinks, I better get a couple of powdered jelly donuts I know how people love them. I really believe they ordered the others, then the guy said, well you got two more and the person said, “whatever just throw a couple more in there.” These things are horrible. Even kids don’t eat them.
So your thinking, “Sean, your being too hard on these donuts.” No, I’m not. First of all, they don’t taste that great. If that were the case alone though, they would still get eaten. The real problem is they are impossibly messy. I challenge anyone to eat one of these jelly filled land mines and not come out with either powder or jelly or more oft than not , both all over themselves. Seriously, I believe the only place you could really enjoy one of these donuts is in the shower.
So, again I have to wonder, why do they continue to make them? Do they really sell that well? I know they stopped making my favorite donut, the french cruller. It’s blasphemy! Maybe someone high up in Dunkin Donuts will read this blog and let me know. I am not privy to sales figures so I had to do my own research in the form of an experiment. Here is how it works.
Hypothesis: If a dozen assorted donuts are left in the break room, the last two donuts and most probably the only two left over the next day will be the Powdered jelly donuts.

Now this is what the box looked like when I left it in the break room at 10:30 am this morning.

Now here is the same box at 11:30 am.

Conclusion: Ok, now it is almost 12:30 pm and I’m afraid there has not been a significant change in the box. I can only assume I got it out there a little too late this morning. I am quite confident however, that my point is still proven. Not only were 6 more donuts removed from the box, but I don’t think the jelly donuts were even touched. Maybe you too could try this experiment at your office and let me know how it goes.

Come to think of it, maybe the only reason they still make the powdered jelly donuts is, we all keep buying them to try the experiment. It is just one of the great mysteries of the world I guess I will never understand.

God Bless.
