NATIONAL DONUT DAY - Yep, this Friday June 7th is officially National Donut Day so be on the lookout for national and local donut shops to be giving out free donuts or having special deals.
FREE DUNKIN' DONUTS - Dunkin' Donuts is giving away a free donut with any beverage purchase Friday to celebrate. And it seems to be a world wide offer.
FREE KRISPY KREME DONUTS - Speaking of free donuts, Krispy Kreme is getting in on the National Donut Day festivities by giving away a free donut of any variety, no purchase necessary (not valid in CT and Puerto Rico).
FOIE GRAS DONUTS -And if a regular old donut isn't your cup of tea, how about a Foie Bomb from Psycho Donuts? It's a donut hole "stuffed with foie gras mousse and then pierced with a pipette of honey, fig and balsamic gastrique", then topped with a leaf of crispy fried sage. Psycho Donuts had help coming up with this concoction from local chef Charlie Ayers (he of former executive chef of Google fame). Since the donuts are being given away for National Donut Day instead of being sold, they get around the ban of selling foie gras in California rule.
DONUT BACON SANDWICH - Not quite the Donut Bacon Cheeseburger everyone had a fit about when Paula Deen had one but Dunkin' Donuts is going nationwide with their new offering this week. The new breakfast item comes with fried eggs and bacon served between one of their split glazed doughnuts. Supposedly coming in at only 360 calories, the sandwich is going to be part of Dunkin' Donuts permanent menu this Friday. Will I try one? I'd try one if there was a Dunkin' around, but I have already tried a Donut Bacon Cheeseburger (it was actually quite tasty). Should we all be in an uproar that this unhealthy item is on the menu? Nah, I don't see this as any worse than having a couple of pancakes with your eggs and bacon for breakfast every now and then.
As always with these free promotion give-aways, you need to make sure your local store is participating (you can usually check the companies website), and they can sell out quickly so make sure you get there early!
