Edit request, 30 Oct 2016[edit]

In the sentence "The donut spelling also showed up in a Los Angeles Times article dated August 10, 1929", donut should be italic as it refers to the word, not the object. This is correctly done in the rest of the paragraph. 2.25.149.53 (talk) 23:06, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

There was a clear, neutral voice maintained throughout the entire article, but I do feel that some of the information is a bit outdated. Also, some of the citations are from websites with links that do not work. For example, #70, which should link to “donutking.com” does not actually link to anything. Other examples are #73 and the hyperlink “Desert Doughnuts” in the In Popular Culture- United States section. I noticed that this article has a warning that it needs more citations for verification and that there are sections that might contain original research. Especially in the Shapes section, there should be more reliable sources present. Additionally, I thought it was interesting how the Regional Variations section was so long and comprehensive but the In Popular Culture section was only limited to 3 countries. There should be more information on donuts in pop culture in other countries as well. Rachelchang (talk) 07:54, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

German doughnut[edit]

Should we add the following content in article's "see also" section?

Donut Hole Diameter[edit]

I noticed this historical photo on Reddit today that shows the size of the doughnut hole changed over time. This might inspire someone to investigate and add to the article. https://i.redd.it/llyls0veqnwy.jpgSbmeirowTalk • 14:19, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Can we add a little information about Bulgaria in the Europe section. It goes like this: "Bulgaria The donuts in Bulgaria are usually under average size, have a sweet topping - chocolate or jam, they are always served in large numbers and have an extremely small hole in the middle. You can buy them on almost every festival. They cost around 2 leva(1 euro or 1,3 dollars) for 15 donuts." Grishol1 (talk) 14:02, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Unhealthy?[edit]

A change was made on 19 Mar 2017 which basically says "Doughnuts are unhealthy, some less so than others". It's a very definitive and direct statement, one that does not even exist for Twinkies, or Coca Cola. I would suggest changing it to "generally considered unhealthy", which allows for healthier variations of the treat to exist. Fshafique (talk) 18:26, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Toroidal doughnuts[edit]

I am sure that this article at one time said that ring-shaped doughnuts were called toroidal doughnuts. Could, and should, this go back in the article?Vorbee (talk) 14:24, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
