Enter Krispy Kreme. After all, police officers aren't the only public servants who love those glazed treats, especially when they're hot out of the oven. They're loved by firefighters and the commander-in-chief, too.

According to Buzzfeed, President Obama had pre-ordered three dozen doughnuts, but added a second dozen to the order at the shop. At Krispy Kreme, the President met an employee named Michelle, to which he replied, "love Michelles."

He then met a man with two young boys and said, "let the President buy you a jam doughnut." The little boys opted for two powdered sugar treats instead.

One customer, a teacher, received a special shout out from the President who told the press pool, "Trent is a math teacher, he is buying doughnuts for his kids. That whole math and doughnut connection is the key to school reform because I know his kids are doing great."
