Now that we got you hungry, you will be thrilled to know that Krispy Kreme is offering a free doughnut of any variety with no purchase necessary (but, seriously how can you eat just one?) to celebrate the annual National Doughnut Day on the June 7 (locations and details below).
As silly as a “National Doughnut Day” sounds, historically it was created by the Salvation Army as a fundraiser in 1938 to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
As if we needed a holiday to partake in the sugary goodness that is Krispy Kreme, they had us by
“free.” If you’re on a diet, this should definitely be your cheat day. So make a thing of it and celebrate America in our favorite fashion: with deep-fried and sweetened food! – Kelly Chambers
