I always enjoy a great food holiday and Donut Day is by far the best. It is the one day a year where Krispy Kreme gives me donuts all day for free. Sure, I only get one at a time for free, but the fun of the day is driving to all the different ones and seeing everyone so happy to get free sugar. Dunkin Donuts are the spoil sports. Oh sure, they will give you a free donut, but you have to buy a coffee first. The problem with that is that with that much coffee in your system, the drive to the next Dunkin Donuts can be very, very long and you hope the line to the bathroom is very, very short.
The other thing I love about this day is that it has been around forever. It started in 1938 so this isn't something that was some PR dreamed up a few years ago. Nope. Instead it was started by the Salvation Army as a way to raise money for their needs. At Krispy Kreme and at Dunkin Donuts there should be a way for you to chip in a few bucks to help the Salvation Army and not have to listen to them ring that bell of theirs.
If you decide to go to a Dunkin Donuts they are having their contest to determine which donut creation from an individual will be sold for a year at all Dunkin Donuts stores. Every year I submit my tequila glaze donut and every year I come out a loser. The favorite to win was the sm'Oreo donut and they were really winning by a lot. It sounded amazing. However, I think the corporate people realized it would be really expensive and so some guy won who put some toffee chips on a plain donut. Yeah, I love a candy bar on my donut as much as the next person, but I can get the same taste at every ice cream store around the world. You give me a smore and an oreo and a donut, that is a new taste experience.
