Poll: Do you prefer doughnuts with or without fillings?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

YOU MAY HAVE noticed the explosion of doughnut shops across the country in recent months.

The greasy delights are the new cupcakes – the latest beloved treats of marketers and foodies the world round.

The resurgence in Ireland has kicked off a very important debate: to fill or not to fill. The creative chefs behind the new craze are fond of inventive fillings such as crème brûlée; peanut butter and jelly; and vanilla custard with mascarpone.

We want to know what our readers believe in.
