It's National Doughnut Day - Celebrate with a FREE one from Krispy Kreme

It's #NationalDoughnutDay so swing by your local Krispy Kreme doughnut shop to get a FREE doughnut in recognition of the day.  Throughout June 5, 2015 Krispy Kreme locations in the U.S. and Canada will let you swing by and walk out with a free doughnut of your choice.  Whether it's powdered, filled or a hot Original Glazed® just tell them you want a free doughnut and its yours.

I stopped by the Krispy Kreme by our house this morning after I dropped the kids off at school.  I was in and out in just a few moments and it was easy as just saying "I'd like a free doughnut" to get my National Doughnut Day celebratory treat. Oh was that hot glazed doughnut good!

National Doughnut Day commemorates The Salvation Army volunteers who provided doughnuts to soldiers serving overseas during WWI to boast their moral.  It seems there is some sort of  national recognition day everyday that is promoted by some industry trade association as a marketing tool to sell stuff, but National Doughnut Day is a little different. It was launched in 1938 by the Chicago branch of The Salvation Army as a way to generate awareness of its community services and recognize its women volunteers who contributed to the war effort. LIFE posted a great story on the background of National Doughnut Day on their website, check it out!   National Doughnut Day is still going strong 77 years later ... and of course the doughnut retailers are joining in now. I'm not complaining though, I love a good freebie and Krispy Kreme doughnuts are great!

Happy National Doughnut Day everyone!
