(Best Syndication News) - There seems to be a day to commemorate everything – including donuts. June 1, 2012 is National Donut Day. What does this mean? This might mean a free donut at some retailers around the country. Every first Friday of June has been designated as National Donut Day. Donuts is also spelled as doughnuts, but either way they are a popular treat.

The National Donut Day goes back to 1938, when the The Salvation Army in Chicago did a fundraiser with the bakery food. The donuts were the chosen product because of the successful reception of treats that were given out to military men in World War I by Salvation Army volunteers. The Salvation Army still celebrates National Donut Day in areas by handing out donuts and coffee on this day.

Retailers have joined in on the day by offering free donut promotional offers. Dunkin Donuts is offering a free donut with the purchase of a beverage. Krispy Kreme donuts is offering a free donut at their locations.
