But something new this year has been concocted at Blinkie’s — presidential donuts just in time for Election Day.

The fluffy confections are frosted and covered with either blue sprinkles for the Biden/Harris donuts, or red sprinkles for the Trump/Pence donuts. Each have their respective campaign logos printed on an edible frosted sheet in the center.

Blinkie’s owner Teresa Ngo says she’s gotten a mixed reaction from customers when they see her presidential creations, ranging from “burn the red ones, or the blue, or ‘yeah that’s cool. I’m glad you’re supporting both parties,’” but it’s all in good fun.

Teresa is keeping a tally each day on which batch of presidential donuts sell out on an “Election 2020” board in the shop. So far, in the last four days of sales, the score is tied up, 2-2.
