June 4 is the official National Doughnut Day… or one of two that is celebrated in America and around the world anyways. Each year it it celebrated on the first Friday of June.
This day was chosen back in 1938 to honour the Salvation Army Donut Lassies. These were women who served treats to soldiers during World War I. This day began as a fundraiser for Chicago’s Salvation Army. The goal of their 1938 fundraiser was to help the needy during the Great Depression.The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the helmets of the American soldiers. American infantrymen were then commonly call “doughboys”.
Doughnuts have been around for a long time but but have you ever stopped and wondered who invented donuts in the first place?? It was actually the Dutch.
The Breadski Brothers recently launched a new range of doughnuts. They are available right now in stores across Ireland and come in 4 delicious flavours. Get more information below.
