Pajama Food: Donuts

Donuts definitely fall in the category of yummy pajama foods!  There are so may varieties and who can resist a glazed or jelly filled delight with a delicious cup of coffee?  There’s no denying that they’re typically high in sugar, fat, and calories, but this doesn’t mean you can’t indulge every now and again, right?!

Take the Krispy Kreme Challenge

If you’ve never heard of it, the Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual charity race that takes place in Raleigh, NC, that started as a dare between a few NC State students.  It soon got national coverage with people coming in from all over the country.  As they say, the challenge “epitomizes the test of physical fitness and gastrointestinal fortitude”.  Its a 5 mile run, but halfway through participants are challenged to eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, and then run the rest of the race.  Now that’s a challenge!
