National Donut Day Deals at Krispy Kreme, Dunkin', Tim Hortons and More

Today is National Donut Day and your favorite donut shops, like Krispy Kreme and Dunkin', are celebrating with some tasty offers. From deals and discounts to even free donuts, there are plenty of ways to join in the festivities.

National Donut Day takes place on the first Friday in June every year. Although largely about indulging in sweet treats, it's also a chance to celebrate the Salvation Army lassies, the women who served donuts—made using molds from old shrapnel—to soldiers during the first world war.

The original "Salvation Army Doughnut" was served by women in the Salvation Army in 1917 when they handed home-cooked foods to soldiers on the front line. They served thousands of donuts daily and the Salvation Army lassies became known as "Doughnut Girls."

More than a hundred years later, donut shops across the U.S. are celebrating the donut with deals and discounts, like those listed below...
