National Donut Day!

Who doesn’t love a donut?! Papa Rich and Grandma Colleen absolutely love donuts! The custard filled with chocolate icing are their favorite! Another favorite, the segment about donuts from comedian Jim Gaffigan. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a must! Jim Gaffigan is hilarious and total gets the deliciousness of a doughnut!

There are so many different donut bakeries. Who knows which one is best? Perhaps, ALL OF THEM! Here is a list of a few donut places you may want to give a whirl!

GoodGrandma℠ encourages a “Reason to Celebrate” and to go and get yourself, and the grandkids, some donuts. Maybe a half dozen, or a dozen, or more! Why not?! It’s worth splurging; it’s a National holiday celebrating DONUTS!!!

National Doughnut Day History

Each year on the first Friday in June, people participate in National Doughnut or Donut Day. This day celebrates the doughnut and honors the Salvation Army Lassies, the women that served doughnuts to soldiers during WWI.

In 1917, the original “Salvation Army Doughnut” was first served by the ladies of the Salvation Army. It was during WWI that the Salvation Army Lassies went to the front lines of Europe. Home cooked foods, provided by these brave volunteers, were a morale boost to the troops.

The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of American soldiers. American infantrymen were then commonly called “doughboys.”

National Doughnut Day was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served the doughnuts to soldiers in World War I. This day began as a fund-raiser for Chicago’s Salvation Army. The goal of their 1938 fund-raiser was to help the needy during the Great Depression.
