Doughnuts are good luck!

I read today that circular foods in the shape of a ring are thought to bring good luck .Symbolizing coming full circle.My Good Luck Chocolate Doughnuts with chocolate glaze are made with whole wheat flour and baked not fried so I am already on the right track. So stay away from chicken because that is bad luck according to my brother in law Jim .I surely do not want to scratch for a living in 2012! Happy New Year !!!!
