June 3rd, 2016 is National Doughnut Day! So why is there is a National Doughnut Day? Are we just paying homage to the tasty treat we love? Nope, there is a legitimate and pretty cool history for this yummy day! National Doughnut Day was was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The women who did this work became known by the servicemen as “Doughnut Dollies”. In Chicago, National Doughnut Day is still a fundraiser for The Salvation Army. In the Second World War, Red Cross Volunteers also distributed doughnuts, and it became routine to refer to the Red Cross girls as Doughnut Dollies as well. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June.
Who doesn’t love a yummy doughnut to start off their day. I start every Disney Day off with Dunkin’ Donuts since there is one about half way through my 2 hour drive that I love to go to. They always have quick service and quality food. Plus, it is one of the few location where I can find a cheddar cheese bagel.

You may be wondering what drink to order. I was lucky and got to try all the new summer beverages Dunkin’ Donuts has to offer. Check out these tasty, refreshing drinks!
- Almond Joy Iced Coffee
- Heath Iced Coffee
- Lemonade Sweet Tea
- Watermelon Coolatta
- Blue Raspberry Coolatta
- Sour Apple Coolatta

My favorite was the Heath Iced coffee. It doesn’t even need any sugar added to it, it tastes just like the candy bar! My favorite Coolatta was the Blue Raspberry.
If you are looking for something less sweet, try the Bacon Supreme Omelette Sandwich! It is so yummy!!
