National Doughnut Day? Let’s Celebrate!!
Who knew? ….The first Friday in June is National Doughnut Day.
Who Cares! Any day is a good day to eat Doughnuts!
Every food seems to have a holiday for itself these days. National Doughnut Day has an awesome purpose.
Apparently National Doughnut Day was created back in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers in World War I. The day of recognitions and celebration was actually started by Chicago’s Salvation Army as a fund-raiser to help the needy during the Great Depression. The day has since become a way to recognize the contributions of these women during the war.
So in honor of them, let’s eat doughnuts!!
There are a lot of ways to celebrate today. Several establishments are offering special purchases of and with doughnuts.
Today, I am celebrating National Doughnut Day with a delicious doughnut from my recently discovered Fractured Prune® Doughnuts
Their Basic (delicious-on- its-own) Plain doughnut drenched in a strawberry glaze then topped with teeny-mini chocolate chips
The doughnuts were so warm that the chocolate chips actually started to melt into the strawberry glaze …..oh yum!!
