After eating a dozen doughnuts at the bakery, Doughnut Don’s appetite for sugar was satiated or completely satisfied. These sugar needs happened from time to time, but Doughnut Don could always count on “Bart’s Bakery” on the corner to fully fill or satiate his large sweet tooth. In fact, after some visits to Bart’s, Doughnut Don consumed so many doughnuts that he often felt too full, stuffed, or satiated by sugary delights.
