Wish I could be a cop so I can casually eat 3 donuts in a day…

Why are donuts such a popular sweet treat for police officers? Based on the Tasting Table, most donut stores were opened all night, allowing for officers on beat to enjoy a convenient snack. But more importantly, it served as an emotional sustenance. So, if you find yourself in need of a pick-me-up during your daily grind, don’t settle for less.

Instead, opt for the best possible donuts. Whether it’s a classic powdered donut or innovative variations like the mochi donut or bombolone, here are seven bakeries in Singapore to get the best donuts.
