I've been watching "The Simpsons" since high school. I always thought there was a decent chance that it was based on Springfield, MO (our hometown). Except we don't have a nuclear power plant like the one Homer works at, or a nearby ocean, or a neighboring town called Shelbyville. Turns out 34 states in the U.S. have a Springfield, so it's probably not based on ours.
The reason I'm thinking about "The Simpsons" is because I took these donuts to the office, and everyone was immediately like, "Homer Simpson donuts!"
What I love about these donuts (other than the fact that they look like "Simpsons" donuts) is that the batter is made with cream so they're extra rich. And the glaze is made with a little raspberry juice instead of food coloring, giving the glaze its light pink color. They don't really taste like raspberry though, just FYI.
