    Krispy Kreme has announced it will provide free doughnuts to healthcare workers during this COVID-19 crisis.

    I’m not sure what to make of this myself. It is generous. But it is providing our healthcare workers with decidedly unhealthy snacks.

    A donut or two is not going to kill you. I reckon health care workers are among the people least likely to pig out on donuts or junk food.

    Anyone thinking about healthcare workers gets a thumbs up.

    McDonalds and Nando's Chicken have special offers here.
    (Free coffee, and 50% off, respectively)

    If one really likes that kind of donut, then the
    morale boost is good for the immune system.

    As with the Clintons donating pizza to hospitals in NYC, this is a bad idea and an easy way to spread the virus, any take out food is potentially infected.

    I think it's a nice gesture. Personally, although I am not above stuffing a doughnut into my pie-hole now and then, Krispy Kreme is just way to sweet for me.

    I had one once.
    Didn't do it for me.
    Not nearly as good as a cider donut.

    I have never even heard of a cider donut. Must be an east coast thing? I'm up for it....send me a dozen.

    Not that most nutritionists would admit it but sugary snacks are the best food to get through a demanding and stressful day. Just don't let it become a habit.

    They're a deep fried cake donut commonly served in the fall with
    recently pressed apple cider, especially popular with grizzly bears.
    (They help @Wu Wei put on weight for the winter's hibernation.)
    These are sugar sprinkled, but I prefer mine plane.
