If you live in the eastern Unites States and have ever driven through Georgia or on south to Florida, there’s a good chance you found yourself on Interstate 75, passing near Macon.

Donut You Know it’s St. Louis

In 1904, St. Louis hosted the World’s Fair. Who would have thought so many years later, the donut would still be paying homage to that event?
