National Donut Day Means Free Donuts Today


Share this Post

Every year The Salvation Army declares June 1 National Donut Day in honor of the Salvation Army "donut girls" who served donuts to soldiers in Europe during World War I. The organization has a short, wholesome video on the subject that you can view below. It's sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy about the U.S., but that's just The Salvation Army's interpretation of the day. What National Donut Day really means to most of us is free donuts.

Both Dunkin' Donuts and Krispy Kreme are giving away donuts at their in-store locations in celebration of the holiday. To receive a free donut from Dunkin' Donuts, customers must purchase a beverage at the store, but Krispy Kreme claims that any customer can receive any one donut of his or her choice for free - no purchase necessary.

Krispy Kreme has had its "Krispy Kreme Cruiser" parked on Wall Street today, and the company's CEO and CFO rang the closing bell for the New York Stock Exchange. Dunkin' Donuts has been running a Twitter contest, giving their followers a chance to win $50 Dunkin' Donuts gift certificates for answering an hourly donut quiz question.

Take a look below the video to see some of the sugar-high-influenced tweets caused by National Donut Day. And don't forget to pick up your free donut on the way home from work.
