United States – June 2nd is National Donut Day, and thousands of people are flooding social media to establish that they did get their morning donut today, just like they did on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week.
“I get at least one donut every morning before work, sometimes I get two when Cindy brings in a box for the office. But today is special, because I get to tweet about my compulsion for fried bread without guilt.” -Dale, 48
Major chains like Dunkin Donuts are offering free donuts today with a beverage purchase, which is a great way to say thank you to their customers who would have otherwise paid for their usual breakfast.
