Celebrate National Doughnut Day with free doughnuts June 7!
By Natalie Marusin
Hip-hip-hooray, it’s National Doughnut Day! And, for us, there is no better way to celebrate the sweet and scrumptious morning (or afternoon — or evening) treat than indulging in one (or five) on this nationally celebrated holiday.
Happily, many doughnut chains have decided to kick off the festivities by giving away free doughnuts. That’s right, free! So, be sure to stop in at these fine doughnut establishments on June 7 to join the sugar rush party.
Free doughnut at Krispy Kreme
It has been debated that Krispy Kreme has one of the best doughnuts around. And when the chain’s “Hot Doughnuts Now” sign is lit, indicating fresh Original Glazed doughnuts hot-of-the-press, it is almost impossible not to make a pit stop. Krispy Kreme is celebrating National Doughnut Day by offering a free doughnut of any variety with no purchase necessary. So, will you choose Original Glazed, celebrate with a chocolate iced with sprinkles or be adventurous with a featured Key Lime Cake doughnut? Whichever way you go, the free choice is yours on June 7.
Free doughnut at Dunkin’ Donuts
Dunkin’ Donuts is going all out this year, taking its celebration of National Doughnut Day global. In the chain’s first-ever worldwide doughnut celebration, Dunkin’ Donuts will be offering a free doughnut of your choice on June 7 with purchase of any beverage in 31 countries. And, while you’re there, go ahead and try one of the company’s newest creations: the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich. We’re talking crispy bacon slices paired with a pepper-fried egg between two halves of a glazed doughnut. Now, that one may not be free, but it’s one heck of a way to celebrate.
Free doughnut at LaMar’s Donuts
In channeling the true meaning of National Doughnut Day, LaMar’s Donuts is taking a look back to where it all started. National Doughnut Day is celebrated the first Friday of every June, thanks to a tradition established in 1917, when Salvation Army volunteers known as “Lassies” made doughnuts for soldiers on the front lines of World War I.
As a nod to the past, LaMar’s is teaming up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for a variety of humanitarian efforts while giving away free doughnuts on June 7. Stop in and receive a free doughnut, no purchase necessary, and have the opportunity to help out those in need. What a way to celebrate that sugary breakfast delicacy we all know and love.
