I just learned from RedPlum that Friday is National Donut Day! Can you believe such a thing? There is actually a day to celebrate the sugary round snack food. Apparently, the holiday was started by the Salvation Army as a way to recognize the women who served donuts to soldiers during the first World War and has been in existence since 1938. Who knew? Not me!
Starting Friday, June 4 from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, participating Krispy Kreme locations will be handing free delicious donuts WITHOUT any purchase necessary! Can you believe that? Completely free without any strings. I can feel my waistband expanding already!
Dunkin Donuts will be celebrating the holiday by giving away free donuts from 12:00am – 11:30pm on Friday, but you need to purchase a beverage in order to receive your sugary goodness. This isn’t a problem for me, since I can’t walk out of there without a cup of joe anyways.
Check your other local donut shops! They might be participating in the National Donut Day celebration too!
