Donut get us started about National Donut Day! Or do, because who doesn’t love donuts?
Friday, June 3rd is National Donut Day. Each year, this holiday falls on the first Friday of June. And, the history of this holiday is actually quite interesting.
National Donut Day can be traced back to the volunteers of the Salvation Army in World War 1. There was a group of volunteers who were tasked with providing comforting meals to the soldiers on the front line. These volunteers quickly found that donuts were an efficient and effective way to provide food in the difficult circumstances. They would even use war helmets to fry up donuts! In 1938, National Donut Day was established as a way to honor the volunteers of the Salvation Army that showed up to help soldiers in the first World War.
How cool is that? Be sure to celebrate with a donut or two today! Most donut shops across the country have some sort of donut special (some even have free donuts– and we know our Agents love a good freebie)!
What is your favorite kind of donut? Let us know in the comments!

Jelly filled and eclairs
I love the fried cinnamon rolls with maple icing!
If I get to go to our specialty shop, any of their homemade cake donuts! I prefer the maple icing but any of their icings are delicious!!
Long Johns or the other chocolate iced, creme filled donuts…Not the custard filled ones (yuck). Also the ones that are cinnamon swirled. And Apple Fritters of course.
It is the chocolate covered donuts with Boston crème for me. Love them 🙂
Krispy kreme chocolate filled glazed
Jelly filled or chocolate long Johns
I have had coffee nut drizzle …love custard filled but most times we grab glazed or glazed with chocolate icing
I love all types flavored donuts I’m not picky at all for them. But I’ll eat more the chocolate ones.
I like them all .
Rasberry jelly filled
Boston creme donut
I love old fashioned donut when it’s little crispy
My favorite is a glazed donut with chocolate icing on the top half. No, it’s the glazed donut with crème inside where the hole usually is and chocolate icing on top. Sometimes just a simple glazed donut. Now I’ve let it be known that I love donuts and my favorite depends on how I feel that day and now I’m hungry for donuts.
I personally like all of them . Especially chocolate filled .
