Friday Tip: Free Donuts

If you hadn't heard, today is National Donut Day! I don't know how I have lived as long as I have and have missed this sacred day.  Although, I am generally a fan of healthful eating, I have never met a sale that I didn't like.  And as everyone knows, free makes everything taste better!

Apparently national donut day is not simply an ode to fried pastries that are covered in glaze.  It is a tribute to Salvation Army workers who distributed free donuts to soldiers during World War II. Apparently, the donut is a pastry with a purpose.  Who knew?!

The Huffington Post ran an article today listing places where you can get free donuts today. You can access the article through this link: Places to Get Free Donuts! 

For those in Pittsburgh, you can honor the holiday at a number of local locations, including Giant Eagle. Giant Eagle is making ALL DONUTS just $2.99 a doz.! It's a cheap way to host a Saturday breakfast if you're having guests.  Also, you can get a FREE DONUT with purchase of a hot or cold dispensed beverage. Check out this article for more local locations: National Donut Day Pittsburgh Style.

If you use Twitter, check out hashtags "#DoughnutDay or #DonutDay". Also, there's a website devoted to this holiday called, appropriately, "Donut Day USA".


Here's a video to tell you everything that you need to know about the holiday. ENJOY!!!
