National Donut Day was first celebrated in 1938 to honor members of the Salvation Army who served donuts to World War I soldiers.
The front line donut-serving women were called "Doughnut Dollies" by soldiers.
The "Doughnut Dollies" set up bakery kitchens in abandoned buildings where they served fresh donuts and coffee to servicemen.
National Donut Day was originally called "National Donut And Veggies Day."
It's actually still called that.
National Donut Day is always the first Friday in June, but International Jelly-Filled Donut Day is June 8th.
That's next week! Mark your calendars.
National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day is celebrated on September 14th!
Bonus donut fact: Boston Creme is the official favorite donut of the trueself staff.
The "donut shape" is actually called a 'torus.'
You probably donut care but the plural of torus is tori.
The origin of the donut is a mystery.
Donuts may have been invented by the Dutch, but they may have also been invented by the English. A recipe for "dow nuts" was found in a cookbook written in 1800.
There's a silly hipster food called a "cronut," which is really just a torus-shaped croissant.
Do you remember what a torus is? See fact #6 above.
