National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day! Did you know that? How are you celebrating? For those that are close to a Krispy Kreme, they are giving away free donuts! Locally, here in the Salt Lake Valley, Dunford Bakery is giving $1 off a dozen donuts!

A little history lesson, why National Donut Day? Apparently, it was created by The Salvation Army to honor the women who served donuts to the soldiers in World War I. That was in 1938! It was started as a fundraiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Anyway, the history goes on from there and you are welcome to google it for more information! Needless to say, the first Friday of June, every year is National Donut Day!

My little group chose Dunford Bakey in West Jordan and even though they didn't have all our favorites out, we got a variety instead of our usual...most everyone I know loves their chocolate chocolate donuts! YUM!

What did you do to celebrate? What is your favorite donut?
