Through an email message from my favorite doughnut shop, I was informed that this Friday, June 5th, is National Doughnut Day. I know it’s hip and cool to like doughnuts right now, but I am a doughnut hipster and have loved them so much ever since I was a kid when my mom would buy me a sprinkle doughnut from the grocery store every Saturday morning on her way back from Weight Watchers.
Unlike most Hallmark holidays, it seems like Doughnut Day started out as a fundraiser (one of my other favorite things) for soldiers in WWI and WWII. So by eating doughnuts on Friday, not only are we pleasuring our tummies, but we’re also being patriotic.
As this site’s preeminent doughnut reporter, I’m going to undertake a challenge in honor of this blessed day. For the next four days, I’m going to eat a doughnut and report on it. Now, mid-Michigan is not quite the doughnut heaven that I wish it was, so don’t expect to see amazing confections. But some of them WILL be amazing confections. I invite you to eat your own personal doughnuts while reading, and post pictures and reviews of them in the comments.
Tomorrow’s doughnut: Grocery store doughnut.
