I often wonder why there are 2 ways to spell donuts… This is what I found on Yahoo Answers :
To be technically correct, it’s doughnut. But since doughnuts are such marketable commodities, it got shortened to donut for the sake of space and readability on signs and “cuteness” in marketing and advertising and it’s been that way for so long, it’s become acceptable to spell it that way, but doughnut is still correct.
I’m not sure if donut has been added to the dictionary as an alternate spelling after all these years, but that is possible.
So I think I’m good with Donuts!! lol
TGIF and go ahead… East a DONUT!!
