Random Ramblings: NATIONAL DONUT DAY

Sunday, June 7, 2015


Do you spell it donut or doughnut?
Which is the official correct way to spell it? I have no idea, but I have always spelled it donut, so I will just continue.
Well speaking of donuts, did you know the this past Friday June 5, 2015 was NATIONAL DONUT DAY?  I had no idea until someone mentioned it to me, and then I had to go ask the computer man google as Chloe says.  Yep sure enough it was a real thing, and many places were giving away a free donut.  Darn that we don't have a closer Krispie Kreme donut shop by us.  

So of course I HAD to get the kids some donuts, I mean it was a National Day and all.  

'National Doughnut Day', or National Donut Day, celebrated in the United States of America, is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Doughnut Day event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a. "donut") – an edible, torus-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. In 2009, both independent doughnut shops and large national franchises offered free doughnuts in the United States.

What is your favorite kind of donut?  Just looking at this picture and writing about donuts is making my mouth water!  I have a few favorite kinds, oh what the heck who am I kidding, is there really a bad donut?  No I don't think so. But if I am left with a choice I would have to say my top three favorite are

Several years ago we were in Las Vegas and in the lobby of our hotel there was a Krispie Kreme shop so I got us some for breakfast that morning.  One that I tried that I fell in love with was the 
 OMG so yum!

I think that one day this summer Jacob and I need to take a little trip down to the closest Krispie Kreme and get us a variety of super yummy donuts.  I love that you can watch the donuts being made right in the store.  

Well all this talk of donuts isn't good for trying to loose weight either because now I just want to eat my computer monitor lol.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for National Donut Day next year.
