Donuts are part of the Thanksgiving tradition

Well, in New York anyways...

New York recognized Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday in 1817. It was celebrated with many of the same traditional food items we have today, turkey, apple pie and cranberries, but New Yorkers often added doughnuts and crullers to the menu. YUMMY! 

If you would like to add DoughBoys Donuts to your Thanksgiving Day tradition please go to our North West Reno location. Sorry, our South Reno store will be closed.


Do you know where the jelly donut came from?

The jelly donut can be traced back to the 1500's and was included in Gutenberg‘s first cookbook printed on his "revolutionary printing press." This early version consisted of a bit of jam sandwiched between two rounds of yeast bread dough and deep-fried in lard. Whether the anonymous author actually invented the idea or recounted a new practice, the concept of filling a doughnut with jam spread across the globe.
