The first Friday in June every year is celebrated in the United States as National Donut Day! This is a true thing. Today only you can get a free donut at all Dunkin Donuts (where you need to buy a beverage to get your Donut) and Krispy Kreme Donut Shops. Go! Go while you can! Get a free Donut!
Try to Get a Free Donut today, if You think You Can
National Donut Day is a real “celebration” of sorts, which was actually invented by the Salvation Army. Please Google that fact yourself, because I am too exhausted right now to embed a website hyper link on this post. Various donut shop chains around the country are holding different promotions to celebrate this happy day honoring sugar-glazed fried dough. At the Krispy Kreme, for example, you can get a free donut just by showing up at one of their stores. But at Dunkin Donuts here in New York, you have to buy a beverage in order to get your free donut. At the DD around the corner from where I work – which is basically located in a back alley – they weren’t exactly forthcoming about the “Buy a Bevvy and Get a Free Donut” promotion, but they did eventually acquiesce to giving me a vanilla-frosted donut thing for “free” after initially trying to charge me $3.49 for medium Hazelnut Coffee. Nothing is easy.
The Donut Burger is not a myth or culinary legend: it really exists. Originally invented by the late R&B singer, Luther Vandross when he ran out of hamburger buns and instead placed his delicious meaty burger between two glazed donuts, the donut burger and its assorted variations, such as the Bacon and Egg Brunch Burger really do exist. Imagine how much more popular, controversial (and deadly) McDonald’s would be if only they dared to add a McDonut Burger to their morning breakfast menu? Mmmm . . . so tasty!
