You may notice a theme with which puzzles appeal to Christina and me. Bright colors? Tasty food? Bingo.

This was actually our second time completing this puzzle, the first time being in February 2019. We remembered it fondly and knew it would hit the spot as a stress-free puzzle.
Though the puzzle has 1000 pieces, it’s tremendously easy to sort. There are more than a few unique doughnuts, and by sorting those out it essentially becomes a game of putting together a 1000 piece puzzle made up of 20-25 piece puzzles. The only hitch is a few very similarly colored black frosted doughnuts, but saving those for last and fitting them by shape made this still quite easy.
It’s a bit simpler of a challenge than the recent Candylicious puzzle we solved, which required a frequent reevaluation of which themes could be picked out of the unused pieces. That’s not always a bad thing, especially as we often multitask while working on a puzzle, so it doesn’t need to command our full attention.
Any time we solve a food puzzle like this, I’m always left wondering- did the artist eat nothing but doughnuts for the next week?
