Before the comments about stereotyping start to roll in, let’s look at the figures.
American actually has a National Donut Day (the first Friday of every June). The day celebrates the fact that there are 10 billion donuts consumed in the United States every year.
Then there’s Guinness and Irish cream, known the world over by the brand name, Bailey’s. Everyone around the globe knows these two Irish drinks, even if they know nothing else about Irish culture. These two are like Coke. Massive brands and ridiculously popular.
So there you have it. This recipe from the genius of blogger, Thrifty Jinxy, is perfect.
Whip up a batch of these for your next party and wait for the praise!
