At participating Dunkin’ Donuts, you can get a free classic doughnut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage all day Friday. You can find your local Dunkin' Donuts shop here.

Oreo just released its new cookie flavor and Homer Simpson is losing his mind over it. The new jelly-donut flavored treats are Golden Oreos with a raspberry center and custard outer ring. The new flavor will be sold exclusively at Walmart.

The origins for National Doughnut Day go back to 1938.

The Chicago branch of the Salvation Army created the day as a fund raiser to help those struggling during the Great Depression and as a way to honor The Salvation Army “Lassies” who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday is typically celebrated on the first Friday of June.
