Friday, June 3rd is National Doughnut Day!
The Salvation Army created this sweet holiday back in 1938 as a fundraising event. But the day is now celebrated in many places with free doughnuts.
Here are some of the places around the country where you will be able to score doughnut deals and free circular treats.
Participating Krispy Kreme stores will give customers any doughnut free on National Doughnut Day (one per customer). Not enough doughnuts? For $1 you can a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts with the purchase of any dozen or 16 count minis.
At most Dunkin’ shops – and we hope at some airport locations – you should also be able to get a free classic donut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage on June 3.
Free IKEA Meatball Donut
Doughnut lovers will want to know all about the Donut Trail in Butler County, located in southwestern Ohio.
13 mom-and-pop doughnut shops are on the 80-mile Donut Trail. And in honor of National Doughnut Day the Donut Trail is partnering with IKEA in West Chester, Ohio to offer visitors a limited-edition IKEA-inspired meatball donut.
Yes, we said meatall donut.
IKEA’s donut is described as having a light and fluffy base, lingonberry glaze, lingonberry sauce, an IKEA meatball or a plant-based alternative on top. Visitors to this IKEA only will be able to get a complimentary meatball donut on June 3rd and 4th between 11 AM and 3 PM, while supplies last.
No doubt many of the artisan donut shops on the Butler County Donut Trail will be doing something special for National Doughnut Day too. But year-round anyone who visits all 13 donut stores and gets their official donut trail passport stamped can also get a complimentary Donut Trail T-shirt.
Duck Donut locations around the country will hand out free cinnamon sugar donuts to customers on June 3.
You’ll also find free doughnut offers at Shipley Do-Nuts (free glazed, with any purchase) and many other donut shops as you travel around the country on National Doughnut Day.
