Here's What You Missed: Donut Day Indy 2019

June 7th marks National Donut Day, which means free donuts. But here in Indy, National Donut Day means competition... you still get free donuts though. Here's how the Donut Day Indy competition went down.


Hundreds gathered for Donut Day Indy on monument circle to see which donut and which shop would be crowned the best in central Indiana. Oh, and for free donuts.

The Salvation Army handed out Titus Bakery donuts as Tony Katz broadcasted the donut competiton.

The donuts were judged on three categories: apperance, texture and taste.



With over 15 bakeries participating and over 30 donut shop submissions for Voter's Choice, the judges didn't have an easy feat.



In order to combat the sugar rush, the judges were broken up into three panels.

After a 40-minute taste test deliberation, the panels found their winners.
