Where can I get free doughnuts for National Doughnut Day?

All of your favorite doughnut shops are getting in on the festivities. Krispy Kreme, 7-Eleven, Duck Donuts, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Tim Hortons are all offering their own tribute. Even Taco Bell is getting in on the action, providing free Cinnabon Delights with every DoorDash, Uber Eats, Postmates, or Grubhub order that costs $20 or more on June 2nd.

What do I have to do to get free doughnuts for National Doughnut Day?

At Krispy Kreme, you can grab any doughnut you want for free. Just walk in and give them a perfect rendition of the entire opera Carmen (this second part is not required, but would certainly increase your chances of becoming TikTok famous). Similarly, if there are any Duck Donuts fans out there, the chain is offering a free cinnamon sugar doughnut to anyone who walks into a participating store.

Unfortunately, most of the other free doughnut deals require the customer to purchase a drink or have a minimum total on their delivery orders. For instance, at Dunkin’ Donuts, you can grab a free classic doughnut, but only if you purchase a drink, and 7-Eleven only offers a buy-one-doughnut-get-a-second-doughnut-free option. Tim Hortons only offers free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day to reward members who purchase a doughnut through the Tim Horton’s app or online.

The History of National Doughnut Day

The first National Doughnut Day took place on June 1st, 1938 to support The Salvation Army’s efforts during the Great Depression and celebrate The Salvation Army’s Donut Lassies (women who were sent to the front lines in WWI to bring soldiers essential goods and sweet treats). You can access The Salvation Army’s original recipe here. All you need are eggs, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, milk, and butter (use tub lard if you want to be authentic to the original recipe).
