You should get a t shirt with a picture of a big jelly stick so all you have to do is point.

If I recall, aren't they two distinct pastry products?

Cruller has no internal filling. Jelly stick has?

oldgoat,
I think the terms roots go back further in terms of distance than Cape Cod.
When I was a kid growing up in west central Ma (60's), the term cruller was universally used in all donut shops. You had plain crullers, along wioth jelly, cinnamon, sugared, glazed, and even chocolate. All were crullers. Never heard them called jelly sticks. But back in those days, almost all the better donut shops were 'mom and pops'.
Then along come Dunkin Donuts and they proliferate all of Ma, and suddenly they're called jelly sticks.

When I think Crueller, I picture a twisted donut either plain, glazed or sugared, they take SOME donut making ability to produce, unlike the jelly stick...... Which is just that.......a stick of dough with some jelly in it.......don't get me wrong though they're still a good substitute when a fix is needed. A lot of the donut shops in CT still make their jelly donuts the old fashioned way, sliced in half lengthwise and then filled with jelly, no poking those donuts!

Thankfully our local donut shop STILL makes a REAL cruller?. Not that crap that DD passes off.

Upper cape (Brockton) there's usauly a choice of plain or sugar jelly stick . I understand the addiction ,once being an addict myself . I'd get 6 plain jelly sticks at a time . A sugar jelly stick is too much imho.

Bob G has it I think

cruller was the original nomenclature, with sub species being, sugar, jelly filled, glazed etc back in the day

DD made it a jelly stick for some corporate reason I suspect

It's a common sense answer! Jelly stick is easier to say and spell than that other name DUH
