Time To Make The Donuts

Friday, June 6 is officially National Donut Day. It’s an unofficial holiday that started out as a way to honor Salvation Army workers who toiled away serving these fried delights to our troops during World War I. So it’s no surprise, that companies associated with these trans-fat belly bombs are hitching their wagons to this event that’s a favorite for carb lovers everywhere. Entenmanns, which will be sadly closing its baking plant in North Bay Shore, (near my childhood home), is offering a lucky winner free donuts for a year. Click on this link to get in on that action:

For the entirety of National Donut Day, Dunkin Donuts is offering a free donut when you buy a beverage. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop, (whose founder and namesake is the late Hall of Fame Toronto Maple Leaf/New York Ranger/Pittsburgh Penguin/Buffalo Sabres defenseman), is also offering a free donut with any purchase all day. This of course, is NOT to be confused with Stan Mikita’s Donuts in Wayne’s World:

But the only franchise which understands the word free means no monetary exchange is occurring on any level is Krispy Kreme. The only catch is that since the majority of outlets from this North Carolina-based franchise went belly up in our area a few years ago, your only shot at taking advantage of this promotion is at the Amtrak level at 2 Penn Plaza in Manhattan.
