Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is currently one of the most trusted men in America. As a leader in the White House’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Fauci has been hard at work trying to keep Americans safe from the spread of COVID-19.
To honor Dr. Fauci, a New York donut shop has created a donut featuring his face. Donuts Delite in Rochester is selling “Dr. Fauci Logo Donuts” and has advertised them on Facebook.
They are plain donuts with buttercream frosting, and the option to be filled with any filling. Donuts Delite prints an image of Fauci on wafer-thin edible paper and places it on top of the frosting
The special donuts are available for contact-less delivery, takeout, and curbside pick-up. According to the shop, hundreds of the Fauci donuts have been sold since they were introduced on Monday.
“People are buying them like crazy,” says owner Nick Semeraro.
