Do you know the difference between a cruller and an eclair, or an old-fashioned and a raised donut? Know how to distinguish a Boston cream from a Bavarian cream, or what sweet substance should top a beignet? If you think you know everything about the mighty donut, prove it with our delicious donuts quiz!

Let's face it -- there are some mornings where only a healthy serving of sugar and carbs will get you out of bed and on with your day. When that happens, many people turn to donuts as a sweet pick-me-up. This doughy delight is so popular that Americans buy around 400 million donuts a year just from convenience stores, which adds up to well over half a billion dollars worth of donuts sold each year.

Ever wonder how the donut became such a hit? It began way back in WWI when American troops in France feasted on the pastries out on the battlefields. They brought their love for this treat home, and the donut craze began to grow. In 1920, a baker named Adolph Levitt invented the first automatic donut machine to keep up with demand at his NYC donut shop. Within a decade, he was a multi-millionaire. 

In 1937, a group of friends in North Carolina started a shop called Krispy Kreme. Dunkin' Donuts began in New England in 1950, and Canadian icon Tim Horton's opened its doors in 1964. These chains and small bakeries spread around the country, delivering donuts to hungry customers. But do you know the different kinds they make?

Think you can tell one variety of donut from another? Take our quiz to find out!
