Woo-hoo! Celebrate National Doughnut Day with free doughnuts!
We're taking a break from politics to discuss something much more important: Free doughnuts!
We obviously don't need to tell you that today is National Doughnut Day. The annual holiday -- started 71 years ago -- was created as a way to raise money for the Chicago Salvation Army. And like any great holiday it continues on, year after year.
And why shouldn't it? Americans love their doughnuts -- consuming more than 10 million of them annually.
For the small minority of people who aren't aware of this hopefully soon-to-be federal holiday, it is celebrated on the first Friday of every June.
To observe this glorious "holey" day, a number of doughnut stores are offering their confections on the house.
On a budget? Krispy Kreme might be the best location. They don't require you to buy anything. Dunkin Donuts on the other hand requires you to buy a coffee or other drink to qualify for a free doughnut. That's still not a bad deal though. Who are we to criticize?
Another helpful tip: Both businesses have store finders on their respective websites. If there are many locations in your area, perhaps you could go on a doughnut "world tour" for the day. You know, hop from store to store loading up free doughnuts. Make a game out of it. See how much weight you can pack on in a day.
