Everyone knows about Clearwater Travel Plaza's legendary donuts. They are as big as a human head, and a special treat when traveling through the area. If you have ever looked at that display case of glorious fried dough and said, "oh man I wish they had a _____ donut," this is the opportunity you've been waiting for.

The Clearwater Travel Plaza is looking for new donuts to sell, and they are rewarding you for your donut creation idea:

Clearwater Travel Plaza also shared a fun fact on Facebook recently that stuck with me. The bakery there orders 84 pounds of sprinkles a week to coat their delicious donuts. To put it into perspective, (if you're like me and numbers don't mean much) that is more sprinkles than the average weight of a full-grown Labrador retriever. That's a lot of sprinkles.

Start daydreaming about a new donut and share it with Clearwater Travel Plaza on Facebook. Who knows, we might even get to taste it for ourselves!
