National Donut Day June 5 2009: get a free Dunkin Donut
There is no greater holiday than National Donut Day this Friday June 5, and both Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme are taking part in the day by giving away a free donut to customers.
In honor of National Doughnut Day - oops, we mean National Donut Day - the chain said that participating stores tomorrow "will give every customer a free donut of their choice, with the purchase of any beverage, limit one per customer."
So you have to buy a beverage at Dunkin Donuts, but Krispy Kreme is giving away one of their delicious treasures for free.
National Donut Day is celebrated on the first friday in June every year and celebrates the glorious invention that is the donut (or doughnut for you traditionalists).
It began in 1938 as a fundraiser for the Chicago Salvation Army to help those in need during the Great Depression and to honour those women from World War I who used to hand out donunts to the soldiers behind the front lines in France during the war.
