It is good to learn something new...and today I learned that there is a National Donut Day...who knew! Here are a few interesting tidbits...
* Started in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army; goal was to raise money for charity and honor those Salvation Army volunteers who baked donuts for soldiers in WWI.
*American infantrymen, who had a fondness for yummy donuts, were called Doughboys!
*It is celebrated every year on the first Friday in June (psst...that is TODAY!)
*One of the more recognizable donut stores is Krispy Kreme...who opened its first store in Winston-Salem in 1937 (heck when I moved to Georgia in 1998 I had never even heard of Krispy Kreme; they hadn't quite made their way to the NW yet!)
*Krispy Kreme is giving free donuts away today...that isn't news you say! But I heard they were giving you the donut of your choice...not just their glazed donuts!!! That is news!
Just curious...do you spell it donut or doughnut? Hmmm.......
