The Snack: Doughology doughnut shop

- Retired NYPD Detective Chris Stiansen knows a thing or two about donuts. So he and his wife Jackie opened up the brand new doughnut shop Doughology in Lynbrook, Long Island.

It's a concept they decided on when Jackie was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. She left her job as a stockbroker and never looked back.

Doughology features a dozen different doughnut flavors. Everything from French toast to blueberry cheesecake to peanut butter cup. Or you can become a doughologist and make your own. There are endless possibilities. They have four toppings: chocolate, vanilla peanut butter and strawberry. Then they have 21 different things you can add.

All of the doughnuts are made in a contraption, one of the only of its kind in the tri-state area, called a Belshaw doughnut robot. The dough goes in, the doughnut comes out.

Just so you know, once you start you won't be able to stop. These aren't your average doughnuts; they are melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

By the way, Jackie is now cancer free and each Wednesday proceeds from Doughology will go towards breast cancer awareness organizations.

So far, the doughnuts are a hit with customers, who keep coming back for more.
