Let’s face it — donuts make us go nuts! Celebrate National Donut Day today, whether its with chocolate, cream filling, sprinkles, or all of the above. The decadent and doughy confections first gained popularity in 1917 due to the Salvation Army Lassies, women that served the sweet treats to soldiers during WWI. These home-cooked foods provided a much-needed morale boost to the troops, and the Salvation Army Lassies delivering the famous “doughboys” risked their lives in the process. A true American breakfast staple, bakeries and coffee shops across the United States will be celebrating National Donut Day -- now is your chance to get in on the sweet, sweet action.
“Mmm, donuts.” —
