Happy National Donut Day!

IMG_0702


Yes, it's a real holiday!

The day is to commemorate Salvation Army volunteers who braved the front lines in order to provide home cooked foods as a morale boost to soldiers. The donuts made in those days were often times cooked inside of the metal helmets of American soldiers.

If you'd like to get your fried dough fix today, Dunkin Donuts is giving away a free donut with any beverage purchase and Krispy Kreme -- oh how I love Krispy Kreme! -- is giving away free donuts with no strings attached.
