An Ode to Donuts

Whether you prefer jelly-filled, sprinkle-topped, or sugar-dusted, donuts are a delightful treat morning, noon, or night. Today, we celebrate these sweet pastries in honor of National Donut Day.

Visit Dunkin' Donuts on Friday, June 4, and get a free donut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage. To pay homage to its product and acknowledge the holiday, the company will also announce the winner of its second annual "Create Dunkin’s Next Donut" contest. The chosen creation will be sold at locations across the country this fall. What's more, Krispy Kreme stores across the country will offer one free glazed donut to every customer on this day.

In addition to being tasty, donuts are trendy as well. Specialty shops like Portland's Voodoo Doughnut and Top Pot Doughnuts in Seattle have become popular tourist destinations.

Thanks to brands like Entenmann's and Little Debbie, donuts have become popular at home, too, with crullers and kid-friendly donut holes bringing smiles to adults and children alike.

Fresh off the line or bought at a supermarket, donuts are delicious and worthy of their own special day.
