If you could only have a mug or a donut, which would you choose?

On one hand, the donut in this combo looks delicious. The decision to only sprinkle half the donut implies culinary expertise, because while tasty, sprinkles can quickly overpower chocolate icing. I give this donut a tentative 9.5 / 10. I say tentative because I’m going purely off looks here; I still need to taste the donut.

On the other hand, that mug looks built to last. On my enjoyment graph, the donut spikes quickly before sinking like a stone in the river of my heart. But a mug, it’s got real growth potential. If the mug becomes part of my morning routine, I might build an emotional attachment. Who has ever had an emotional attachment with a donut? Nobody I know. (Copy Editor's Note: Me. I have.)

You know, frankly, I'm torn. The mug’s open mouth would always remind me of the donut I never had. And the donut would make me thirsty for a sip of hot coffee from my absent mug. Is it better to have eaten a donut and lost a mug, or kept a mug and regretted the donut you never ate? Something to really chew on / drink from as you answer this important poll.
