For those who don’t know doughnut is basically a delicious fried dough laced with flavors from chocolate to bacon. You might want to indulge in having one even if you don’t love sugar just in the honor of National Doughnut Day, which is observed each year on the first Friday of June. You might not aware of the fact that the history of the National Donut Day is as sweet as the desert itself. It Salvation Army decided to honor this date in 1938, but the history trace back to 1917 when the Salvation army sent 250 women to France to help the US Army. We hope you all started this month with a delicious treat and pleasant conversation.
