It’s one of the sweetest days of the year: National Doughnut Day. While it seems like every favorite food is bestowed its own calendar celebration, this one stands out.
It started out as a way to celebrate the female volunteers with the Salvation Army who served up the sweet treats to soldiers fighting in World War I. These brave women, remembered as The Doughnut Lassies, are now acknowledged for their efforts all across the country on the first Friday of June every year. So take some time to think about the work the Doughnut Lassies did for their country, while also enjoying some local deals around town. Here’s where you can celebrate National Doughnut Day.
Celebrate this Friday with a free classic doughnut, with the purchase of a beverage, at Dunkin Donuts. Guests can choose between one of their Glazed, Strawberry-frosted, Chocolate-frosted, Vanilla-frosted, Glazed Chocolate Cake, Boston Kreme, Jelly and Old-fashioned creations. Happy dunkin’!
For doughnuts that come in all kinds of fun shapes and sizes, head over to Earnest Donuts in Grapevine. They are known for their shaped sweets that are sure to put a smile on your kids’ faces. Be sure to pre-order these bad boys if you have an event coming up to customize your own design, or stop by and try out one of their tasty flavors: like Boston Cream Pie and Maple Bacon.
To enjoy a free doughnut – no questions asked – head over to Krispy Kreme in Grapevine. Grab your sweet treat of choice, one per person, to start out your day, no purchase necessary. You can even try out one of their new limited flavors like Chips Ahoy and Nutter Butter Cookie Twist.
If you’re near Grapevine Mills Mall, head over to The Dapper Doughnut. These cake-style treats have both traditional and decadent toppings – everything from Cinnamon Sugar to S’mores. They are so cute and tiny that you may just have to try out a few different options to find your new favorite.
For a local favorite, head over to Peace, Love and Little Donuts of Southlake. Guests can try out everything from their mini plain and powdered doughnuts to nutty creations like their Heath Wind & Fire and Elvis creations that come topped with delicious treats. For a sweeter fix, try out the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough or Fruity Pebbles doughnuts. And for a more gourmet option, their Salted Carmel Macchiato and Robert Brulee treats act as perfectly sweet little starters for the day. Order ahead to make sure you get the quantity you want and the flavors of your choice.
