Is That Doughnut or Donut?

Is it doughnut or donut?  Apparently, the official spelling for that oh-so delicious round piece of dough that is fried is "doughnut" although people have been using the spelling "donut" for a long, long time.  

The company Dunkin’ Donuts opened its doors to the public in the 1950s and has helped the shortened form of the word become even more popular.

The shortened word now appears instead of the longer, harder-to-spell form of the word, in about 33 percent of all American writings.  

If you don’t want to help promote the aforementioned company, you might wish to stick to doughnut. 

Whatever you call them, you can be sure they’re going to stick to your hips!

Which way do YOU spell it? Do you even care?

See you
at the doughnut shop!
