So many doughnuts, so little time.
In honor of #NationalDonutDay on Friday, CNBC took a closer look with experts from New York-based Tasting Table. We asked two mavens to try a dozen varieties—six glazed/original doughnuts and six specialty ones—to find the one that gives the best bang for your buck, based on taste.
