People are loyal to their favorites when it comes to after-dinner treats, and Shaquille O’Neal is no exception.

When it comes to dessert, O’Neal is unwavering about his favorite kind of ice cream — and we admire him for his decisiveness.

On Friday, the donut shop is offering a special deal — buy a dozen original glazed donuts and get a second dozen for just 80 cents. O’Neal celebrated by singing happy birthday to an enormous box of 80 donuts, and it was a real treat.
