Free doughnuts? We’re so down!

National Doughnut Day (perhaps the greatest of all National Food Days) is upon us once again this Friday, June 3―promising a sweet, fried treat to kick off the weekend. This means there are hot lights to be shamelessly stalked and original glazed doughnuts to be salivated over.

The day, established by the Salvation Army, celebrates volunteers―called “Doughnut Lassies”― who served soldiers with the sweet comfort food in France during World War I. You see! National Doughnut Day is not only about posting selfies with sugary treats before gobbling them up with reckless abandon. It’s about service, sacrifice…and then, yes, stuffing your face.

This list of the best doughnut deals should help you along your way.

Krispy Kreme is offering one free doughnut in every state except Connecticut. No purchase is necessary, but the company does encourage hungry lovers of the fried dough to donate to the Salvation Army.
