Is there anything better than a donut in the morning? Having a donut for breakfast automatically means you’re going to have a good day, especially if you have it by an open window with a mug of something warm. But which donut should you go with? There are so many to choose from! Do you select something classic and glazed and cake-y? Or something frosted and covered with sprinkles? Do you go with a fruity flavor or a chocolate delight? And don’t even get us started on all the donut filling options out there — jelly, cream… we’re drooling.
To help us on our quest to find the perfect donut to add to our morning routine (and sometimes afternoon/mid-afternoon/post-dinner/nighttime routine, tbh), we’re looking to the twelve zodiac signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Since these signs can help us delve into the depths of our personalities, who says they can’t help us make fun, food-related decisions? We’ve already looked at cookies, hot cocoa, M&M’s, cupcakes, and so much more. So it only makes sense that we’d tackle the donut case next.
When you’re as busy as an Aries whose brain is focused on their many goals, you’ll take what you can get. Since glazed is, arguably, the most widely available donut, we can easily picture this zodiac sign grabbing one from the office kitchen when they’re on a deadline.
Strawberry-frosted donuts taste and look special, don’t they? Add some sprinkles on top and you’ve got a goodie fit for a Taurus who loves to treat themselves after being a hardworking badass in the office. It makes for both a delicious snack that you seriously deserve and a perfect Instagram pic.
Geminis are never afraid to embrace the controversial — especially when it means they get a chance to try something new and different. Enter the Bavarian cream donut, which many people love to hate. Yes, it’s a bit different, but who ever said different was a bad thing?
As a child, it’s likely that you feasted on powdered sugar donut holes whenever you celebrated something special in school. And though they tend to get all over the place (and your face), you didn’t mind one bit. Even as an adult, you love to embrace this nostalgic donut that makes you feel like a kid again.
When your eyes are searching the donut case, it’s hard to ignore the treats that are covered in cereal and frosting. Your sweet tooth can’t help it! That’s exactly why we think a Leo would be this scene-stealing donut with a charismatic personality. Who could resist?
Virgos tend to err on the side of caution, careful not to indulge too much. With this in mind, we picked a classic donut stuffed with fruit for this sign — because that makes it slightly healthier, right? Plus, this is the perfect dessert for someone who likes to stick with something they know is reliable.
Aside from sounding like a romantic donut one must eat beneath the Eiffel Tower, the French cruller is perfect for someone who likes their food to be balanced. This donut is crunchy and glazed on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. It is everything a Libra could want and more.
Much like a Scorpio, jelly-filled donuts always contain a surprise inside. You never know what’s going on beneath the surface with these treats, and that makes them quite the mysterious choice. You can go with a passionfruit jelly to represent this sign’s passion, or even a deep, dark blackberry to play into their deep, dark depths.
Nothing stands out from the rest quite like a donut covered in toasted coconut. It’s like a vacation in your mouth, allowing you to take a mental trip to an exotic place. Not only is this donut independent like a Sag — it’s also made with the type of wanderlust this sign thrives on.
There is nothing more tried and true than a plain donut covered in maple-flavored frosting. It’s simple, straightforward, and gets the job done — just like a Capricorn. Plus, this dessert is perfect beside a cup of coffee — the best treats always are, aren’t they? Once you go maple bar, you’ll never go back.
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Aquarius is unable to be anything ordinary, because this is one zodiac sign that lives for the extraordinary. Why be just a donut when you can be a donut and a cookie all in one? It might look like something from another dessert-loving planet, but that’s exactly what gets an Aquarius going.
Chocolate-frosted donuts are a favorite among many — especially when they’re covered in rainbow sprinkles. Much like a Pisces, this donut is a friendly, sweet, creative reminder that there are good things in this world of ours. To be the most Pisces you can be, grab a dozen of these to share with friends!
