Why aren't donuts more popular as a dessert item?

Sure, sometimes they are offered as dessert, but it's pretty rare.

Aren't they the perfect dessert item? Deep-fried, sweet doughy goodness?

Why are donuts more notable as a snack (or a breakfast item in the category of danishes or muffins) than as a true dessert item?

Do you eat donuts for dessert?

I know I do. Homemade donuts with a large scoop of ice cream is just about as perfect as it can get for simplicity and deliciousness.
