It doesn't surprise me that Florida would pick Mini Doughnuts. That is just plain crazy, you are already ruining your diet for the day, just get one full doughnut. You buy those mini doughnuts thinking I'll just have one and forty doughnuts later you are asleep at your desk and covered head to toe in white powder like a full on junkie. Typical Florida.

Happy National Junk Food Day, eat yourself into a mini coma, I know I will.
