    I bought a bag of jam ones from Tesco Express one evening .
    They had been put in the bag before they had cooled and were moist. Horrible!

    As homor simpson says... hhmmmmmm donuts.

    But we already established that the ones with a filling inside are impostors.

    Do - dough
    Nut - like a nut bolt

    Stick your fingers in the jam one and its going to look a bit red.

    Homor? Jeeeeez.๐Ÿ˜ 

    Ya, the "filled" ones usually, unless I remember and bite at the end with the injection site, ooze their load onto my shirt/sweater/coat. ๐Ÿ™„

    There is an amusing tradition where I live (Switzerland): on a certain day of the year, in every batch of jam donuts, there will be one filled with mustard instead of jam. Yup, the lucky winner gets a yucky surprise !

    Wonder if the idea came from Germany?

    Krapfen

    Krapfen (known outside of Berlin as Berliner!) are classic, non-North American donuts – deep fried, sugar coated buns with blobs of jam in the middle. And, Germans just happen to eat them in the early hours of New Year’s Day. After hours of talking, shooting off fireworks, entertaining the children, melting some metal (see above), these sweet treats are the perfect party pick-me-up and a great incentive for young children to stay awake. Beware the mustard-filled one: tradition has it that one of the donuts will be filled not with jam but mustard for the poor unsuspecting reveller to bite hard into it and get quite a shock.

    'Semmeldagen' or 'Fettisdagen' this year was 28th February, and this is a 'semla'

    "Semla in singular form or semlor in plural – (and let's face it, any decent bun lover will always have at least two so call them semlor) are doughy balls of sin, oozing a slathericious almond and cardamom paste with lashings and lashings of vanilla-whipped cream atop." (Visit Sweden)

    Sure, but that's because your glasses weigh 5 kilos.

    Why that swine said it was solid gold. Thanks for the tip. I will be calling my lawyer to see if there may be a suit possibility here.
