Let’s not sugar coat it; donuts are having a moment! It seems like you can’t even scroll through your Instagram feed these days without coming across one of the artfully-displayed, sugary confections. AND WE LOVE IT! Who doesn’t love a treat that is both comforting and inexpensive? It’s the holy grail of gluttony.
National Doughnut Day is celebrated the first Friday in June. The celebration was first established by the Chicago Salvation Army in 1938 to honor women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. And you thought it was just another one of those silly ‘National’ days that seem to have hit social media the past few years. It’s cool, so did we!
Donuts have come a long way, though. Remember when they were a simple snack you grabbed from the corner store? Now we see them decked out in crazy colors and toppings, and it’s the best thing ever. Having a cereal topped donut is like two breakfasts’ in one. You can’t beat that! We especially love all of the sweet and savory combinations that have been creating a buzz. Um, can you say maple bacon?!
From traditional to trendy, we just can’t seem to get enough. And we’re ok with that. Donut you agree? 😉
