In Donuts
Interesting you should ask this question. Would you believe I found 2 books written on the subject of the lowly donut! So you aren't the only person pondering this subject.

Not sure how accurate this fact is, but according to The Donut Book: The Whole Story in Words, Pictures & Outrageous Tales, published in 2005 in the US alone over 10 Billion donuts are consumed every year. This translates into roughly $2 Billion dollars worth of tasty treats being sold each year.

Not sure about donut consumption elsewhere in the world. I know Canada is the donut capital of the world with an estimated 3,200 donut stores nationwide and Canadians have the highest per capita consumption of donuts on Earth. It has jokingly been refered to as Canada's national food. In Jan 2008 The Donut: A Canadian History was published. It was written by a University of Toronto history professor. Canada's estimated donut consumption is put around 1 billion.

So in the race for donut supremecy (I know this isn't what you asked, but hey, it's such a fun question I can't help but digress) in sheer numbers, the US wins, but in per capita consumption (this means the average number of donuts eaten spread out over a population) Canada comes out tops because Canada has a significantly smaller population base. Hmmmm... not sure this is something to be boasting, about on second thought.

I couldn't find statistics for other countries. Hopefully someone can contribute them.

So long that archaeologists continue to unearth fossilized bits of what look like doughnuts in the middens of prehistoric Native American settlements. ... The doughnut , as we know and love , supposedly came to Manhattan ( then still New Amsterdam ) under the Dutch name of olykoeks -- "oily cakes". ... In early colonial times , US Dutch immigrants discovered fried cakes. So, as the story goes , a cow kicked a pot of boiling oil over onto some pastry mix , thus inventing the golden brown delight. Apparently, they didn't share this great discovery with their homeland and the fried cakes became a staple in the harsh conditions that existed in the colony. ... Around 1847, Elizibeth Gregory , a New England ship captain's mother , made a deep - fried dough that used her son's spice cargo of nutmeg , cinnamon, and lemon rind. She made the deep fried cakes for her son Hansen and his crew so they could store the pastry on long voyages ...and to ward off scurvy and colds. Mrs. Gregory put hazel nuts or walnuts in the center, where the dough might not cook through , and called them doughnuts . ...Hensen always took credit for the hole in the doughnut. Some doughnut historians think that Hensen was a bit of a cheapskate and was just trying to save on food costs. Others say that he gave the doughnut its first hole when , in the middle of a terrible storm and in order to get both hands on the ship's wheel, he crammed one of his mother's fried sensations onto one of the wooded spokes of the wheel. Yet another tale claims that he decided, after a visit from an angel, that the doughy center of the fried cakes had to go. ... Her son Henson presented "his" creation to the people who apparently sang and danced for days in praise of the best fried cake they had ever tasted. Is the doughnut heavenly food? 17th century America thought so, but unfortunately Hanson was eventually burnt at the stake for being a witch in the mid - 19th century. Today , the town of Clam Cove , Maine has a plaque in honor of Captain Hanson Gregory, the man who invented the hole in the doughnut. ...

Levitt's doughnut machine was a huge hit , causing doughnuts to spread like wildfire. ... By 1934 , at the World's Fair in Chicago , doughnuts were billed as "the hit food of the Century of Progress". Seeing them made by machines "automatically" somehow made them seem all more futuristic. ... Doughnuts became beloved. Legend says that dunking donuts first became a trend when actress Mae Murray accidentally dropped a donut in her coffee one day at Lindy's Deli on Broadway. In the 1934 film "It Happened One Night" , newspaperman Clark Gable teaches young runaway heiress Claudette Corbet how to "dunk". In 1937 a popular song proclaimed that you can live on coffee and doughnuts if "you're in love". ...
