Today is National Doughnut Day!
National Doughnut Day was originally created by The Salvation Army in 1938 as a fundraiser to help people who were in need during the Depression. It was also meant to honor women who served their country by serving doughnuts to World War I soldiers (known as Salvation Army “Lassies”).
Today at Dunkin’ Donuts, many locations are offering a free doughnut when you purchase any beverage.
Krispy Kreme’s Doughnut Day Facebook Page touts one free doughnut for every customer today, with no purchase required.
National Doughnut Day may not be the healthiest holiday, but we think everyone deserves a treat once in a while. So go ahead! Have a doughnut! And maybe to go with it, try Green Mountain’s Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut K-cups! Mmm, chocolate coffee and doughnuts!
Happy National Doughnut Day from your friends at CoffeeCow!
