Directly to the candle lighting table
Most Israelis ordered donuts in the evening, between 16:00 and 18:00, just in time to light the candles.
Many more were pre-arranged, and booked between 11am and 12pm.
The most donuts were sold on the eve of the first candle (Sunday 28/11), the least were ordered on Sunday (5.12) the eighth and last candle, apparently people decided to crack the diet towards the end of the holiday.
One of the most popular orders is of course the special donut package offered by bakeries like Roldan, Tati, Baka Bakery, Bolognese 96 and Sweet.
Among them, starred donuts starred in artistic toppings and fillings such as oreo, pistachio, isfahan-raspberry, cheesecake, brownies and more, although they did not endanger, as mentioned, the undisputed rule of the classic donut, with the strawberry jam.

Afraid of traffic jams?
"When ordering through Wolt, Israelis enjoyed donuts, pancakes and Hanukkah products to home, in the quantity and flavors they chose, from the variety of leading bakeries and stores in Israel," says
Israel Avrahami, Retail Sales Manager at Wolt Israel.
"The convenient interface in the app, the selection and the fast delivery of half an hour that keeps the donuts and pancakes fresh are what make the difference for customers."
Why is the number of orders increasing this year, compared to last year when we were closed?
One can only guess: the combination of the fact that our free time for home preparation and frying has diminished, plus the fact that it is an urban service, with an emphasis on the crowded Gush Dan, so many homes that do not have a bakery nearby Pay a little more to get the delivery directly home, to the candle lighting ceremony.
