Get Your Free Doughnuts for National Doughnut Day

What obesity epidemic? Today is National Doughnut Day and Dunkin’ Donuts, Krispy Kreme, and LaMar’s are handing out freebies to celebrate. So if you need some sugar to make it to lunchtime, head on over.

At Dunkin’, you have a buy a beverage to get the free donut, and it has to be something that doesn’t come pre-packaged like a bottle of soda. At Krispy Kreme, it’s a free-for-all.

Strangely, National Doughnut Day was started by the Salvation Army as a day to honor the women who gave soldiers doughnuts during WWI. More than 10 million are sold each year, putting them second in baked goods to bread. More doughnut info is available in this Huffington Post infographic. It might be bathing suit season, but you’re eating doughnuts for historical reasons, so it’s OK.
