Donut Club Members and Constitutionals,
The 4th of July is a uniquely American Holiday, and a good day to ponder what makes us special. There are many characteristics of America, but one I am thinking about is that America is a true melting pot of cultures. One of those is the Dutch, a large portion of which settled in Pennsylvania. These Pennsylvania Dutch, as they came to be known, were excellent bakers. They brought us the modern variation on cookies, cream pies, cobblers and of course apple pie. Why do I bring this up today in the donut email?
Donuts have a varied history around the world and come in many different shapes and tastes. But, donuts were truly perfected in America by the legendary bakers, the Pennsylvania Dutch. So on the eve of the eve of the most American of Holidays, celebrate like a Pennsylvania Dutchman and have a donut for America.
And along the way thank Donut Boy Eric Jochens for the four dozen delicious Winchell’s donuts located, as always, at JP’s desk.
