Dr. Anthony Fauci spends his days informing Americans about the coronavirus pandemic — and now people are eating him up.
The famous face in public health is now the face of a popular doughnut after a Rochester, N.Y., doughnut shop came up with the idea to put a picture of the infectious disease expert on sweet treats to cheer up the people in lockdown.
“We noticed Dr. Fauci on [TV], and we loved his message and how thorough he was, and how he kept everyone informed during the crisis . . . so we wanted to give back and say thanks,” Donuts Delite owner Nick Semeraro tells CNN.
The shop printed his face on edible paper and placed it on a plain doughnut with buttercream frosting, and the tasty treat has brought in orders from across the country.
Donuts Delite expected to sell a few hundred of the specialty doughnuts and ended up selling thousands. Customers are asking for deliveries to multiple cities and states, Semeraro says, and the shop is getting praise for the nationwide hit.
“I never met a guy that worldwide he is so loved,” Semeraro says. “And a month ago, we never knew his first and last name . . . His political agenda is medical. It’s facts . . . the American public needs facts now.”
Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as a doctor for the National Institutes of Health, and has become a fixture in daily briefings on the pandemic. He recently did a Facebook live with Mark Zuckerburg to address the crisis.
Donuts Delite will continue to sell the Dr. Fauci doughnuts as long as they’re still in demand.
The specialty doughnut costs $2.10 each, $11 for a half-dozen or $20 for a dozen. The store is offering curbside pickup, takeout and delivery, including contactless delivery.
