It seems like there is a special day for just about everything these days, and the donut is no exception.
National Doughnut Day is Friday, and in honor of their big day, donut shops across the nation will be handing out free donuts to customers.
, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, is offering a sweet deal: All you have to do is show up, no purchase necessary, for a free donut of your choice (one per customer).
The nearest Krispy Kreme is located at 4302 Tacoma Mall Blvd.
The most popular donut at Krispy Kreme is the Original Glaze, also known as the "Hot Glaze." If you want to step outside your donut comfort zone, try Krispy Kreme's newest flavor: Key Lime Kreme Pie or Glazed Lemon Cake.
The national day itself, always celebrated on the first Friday of June each year, was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.
The Salvation Army this year is teaming up with baking company Entenmann's to help celebrate National Doughnut Day; Entenmann's will donate proceeds from sales and offer customers a chance to win free donuts for a year. For more information, visit its Facebook page. Entenmann's donuts can be found at area grocery stores.
