Happy National Donut Day!
Whether you spell
it doughnut or donut it’s one fun day!
Doughnut is the
original spelling of the word, with donut generally being listed as a variant
of the preferred original spelling.
Fun fact, Dunkin’
Donuts made the spelling donut more popular. I personally prefer
the spelling donut.
Celebrated on the
first Friday in June each year, National Doughnut Day started in
1938 as a fund raiser for Chicago’s Salvation Army. Their goal was to help
those in need during the Great Depression, and to honor The Salvation Army
women of World War I, who served doughnuts to the soldiers.

donut today (why wouldn’t you?!) here are some local places you can try.

Tim Hortons Had to
be listed because who doesn’t love a Timmi’s donut?! My faves are honey
dip and old fashion glazed, as I’m sure you can tell I like
the simpler donuts. Though I will buy fun donuts for a good pic, haha but
luckily my bf is always happy to eat them. Though I do love Tim’s sprinkle, chocolate
dip and maple dip donuts, I’ve been eating those since I was a kid!
