Those intrepid journalists at TIME magazine have performed an invaluable national service by reporting on this vital issue:
Today is National Doughnut Day. What, you didn’t know the first Friday in June was National Doughnut Day? Now you do. More importantly, now you can find out which doughnut chains around the country are doling out freebies all day long to acknowledge the hol-e-day.
Krispy Kreme, which created a National Doughnut Day event page on Facebook, says people can stop into a store and get one free doughnut of any kind, no purchase necessary. LaMar’s Donuts, a chain with a decent-sized presence in Colorado and the Midwest, is also offering one freebie per customer, no strings attached.
The Dunkin’ Donuts deal is still pretty sweet, but it’s not totally free: Buy any beverage — including the prepackaged ones in the fridge — and they’ll throw in a complimentary doughnut, while supplies last. (Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme both throw in the “at participating stores” caveat. Reps for both companies say the best way to figure out if the doughnut shop you plan to visit is participating, give them a call.)
But wait: there’s more!
