LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – The first Friday of June marks the special holiday of National Donut Day, a tradition that has been celebrated since the late 1930s.

Free fried treats will last as long as supplies do at several of the nation’s largest chains, including Dunkin’, Duck Donuts, and Krispy Kreme. According to Krispy Kreme, guests will be treated to any doughnut free, no purchase required, and also $2 Original Glazed dozens with the purchase of any dozen.

“Our fans look forward to celebrating National Doughnut Day every year with family, friends and co-workers, and they really enjoy getting their favorite doughnut – any doughnut – for free!” said Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme. “We look forward to a sweet celebration with everyone Friday at Krispy Kreme shops throughout the country.”

According to the North Carolina headquartered company, a number of the free doughnuts available include four recently re-added flavors for a short time including: the Banana Pudding Doughnut, Chocolate Kreme Pie Doughnut, Key Lime Pie Doughnut and Strawberries & Kreme Doughnut. Dunkin’ Donuts is offering a similar deal among its nationwide locations for customers in search of some sweetness. “Friends don’t let friends miss out on free donuts,” said Jill McVicar Nelson, Chief Marketing Officer, Dunkin’. “This June, we’re rallying donut fans nationwide to end donut FOMO for good. So gather your friends, grab your favorite donut on us when you order your favorite drink, and indulge in the sweet delight of National Donut Day!”

While not a place that many would think of, Taco Bell is partnering with some delivery services such as DoorDash and GrubHub to provide free cinnabon delights with any purchase of $20 or more.

The National Doughnut Day tradition has its roots in the trenches of World War I, as the Salvation Army was present to help in spiritual and material aid to soldiers. The women serving the troops, Donut Lassies, are remembered for their service and sharing of the baked dessert first in 1938 as Chicago paid tribute to them.

So no matter how you spell, doughnut or donut, you can enjoy a myriad of the delicious treats throughout Michigan at your locally owned businesses and smaller chains.
