ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Dr. Anthony Fauci has received bipartisan acclaim for his role speaking to Americans about coronavirus response, and now Donuts Delite is giving him, and medical personnel, in general, a delicious tribute.
The bakery is now selling Dr. Fauci logo donuts emblazoned with the face of the Head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Owner Nick Semeraro says demand for the donut has been 'crazy', with calls from as far away as Washington requesting a batch.
He praises Fauci for telling America the facts about the pandemic.
"He's the one that kind of gives it to us like it is,” Semeraro said. “He's the one keeping the United States safe, keeping America safe, and that's pretty important. He's taking the time out to give us the facts every day, so we're watching him.”
Donuts Delite is offering touchless and curb-side pick-up during the pandemic.
Semararo says that they intend to keep selling the donuts, but says they may change them up a bit going forward.
