CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA– Today is all about the iconic treat, the doughnut!

Whether you like to enjoy your doughnut frosted, powdered or glazed, many enjoy this doughy snack.

It is believed that doughnuts have been tantalizing American taste buds since Dutch settlers brought them across the sea in the early 19th century.

Some of the earliest recipes featured nuts crammed into the center of the dough.

In present day, doughnuts have become a snacking staple and have brought in billions in sugary sales.
