The saying goes, "Every dog has his day."

And in this country, every food items has its national holiday too.

Today, the food item favored by cops and Homer Simpson is getting the recognition it deserves.

That's right, it's national doughnut day. Rather than keep going for a plain old fashioned, here are some crazy flavors to sample for this National Doughnut Day.

Dandee Donut Factory's Key Lime

While this local chain offer more than 50 kinds of doughnuts on any given day -- all of which are worth a try, by the way -- we like to keep it local in our flavoring. The key lime is sweet, zesty, and as South Florida as a doughnut can be.

Mojo Donuts' 420 Munchie Donut

We all know that Mary Jane has a tendency to bring out the culinary creativity -- come on, that's clearly what keeps Taco Bell running. This Pembroke Pines doughnut shop offers a massive selection of interesting combos, but one reigns supreme. The 420 Munchie features potato sticks, Snickers, and chocolate on a fried ring of pastry.

Rhino Doughnut & Coffee's Banana Nutella

Everyone loves Nutella (well, those who can eat nuts, at least). So, the combination of America's favorite fried pastry with the world's preferred Italian spread is sure to win hearts and minds. Throw in a little fresh banana and you have yourself an utter delight.

The Office's Maple Bacon Doughnut

One food item makes everything better: bacon. Add that to the sweet nectar of the maple tree and fluffy fried dough and there's your perfect equation. Although you can find the flavor composition all over the place, this Delray Beach gastro pub has one of the best around. Pair it with one of the homemade gelatos, and you'll have your mind -- and diet -- blown.

Jupiter Donut Factory's S'mores

Few memories are more enticing than sitting around a campfire with marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, creating the perfect dessert sammie. While we only have a short window of opportunity for dealing with the heat of a fire down here, this Jupiter doughnut shop has the power to recall those sensory recollections through its s'mores doughnut.
