- ―Homer Simpson
Doughnuts are circular pastries that usually contain large amounts of fat. They are most notably Homer Simpson's favorite food and a trademark symbol of his character. He is unable to live without his doughnuts and does not like anyone else eating them. In a Treehouse of Horror episode, Homer changes the past and comes back to an alternate universe where his family is rich and happy, but when Marge does not know what a doughnut is, Homer goes back to the toaster to travel back through time again. However, when Homer leaves, it starts raining doughnuts. In another Treehouse of Horror episode, Homer sells his soul for one. Marge wins the court case and Homer keeps his soul but his head is turned into a doughnut by Ned Flanders. In the show, they usually have pink frosting with multi-color sprinkles.
Doughnuts also make an appearance in The Simpsons: Tapped Out as a type of currency.
Krispy Kreme also has a pink frosted, sprinkled doughnut on their menu called the "Simpson D'ohnut"
