Today’s National Doughnut Day: Free Doughnuts!

According to my Metroblogging brethren in San Jose and DC, today is National Doughnut Day and Krispy Kreme is giving away a free doughnut to honor the occasion.

I haven’t verified with the Stassney or the 183 locations that they’re participating, so don’t blame me if you get down there and they tell you to screw off. The free doughnut isn’t really all that special since they seem to make a habit of giving out a free one when you’re standing in line. At least they do at the Stassney location when I’m there on Sunday mornings.

Not coincidentally, I suppose, Metroblogging LA points to a list of America’s Best Doughnuts. I saw Voodoo doughnuts in Portland, OR featured in an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. It was drool worthy. There aren’t any Texas shops on the list. I know people are partial to Shipley’s and there are fans of Round Rock doughnuts. Dale Rice blogged last month that Dunkin Donuts will be adding five locations here over the next few years.

Have we gotten far enough past the Atkins craze that people are eating these again? Are there any other local shops we’re missing? I’m all for the fat doughy goodness. I’m still pissed off at Starbucks for instituting that no trans fats deal. Their pastries taste like shit now. Who do I have to kill to get the old Pumpkin Scones back?

    True, you usually get a free glazed donut standing in line; but then, you are standing in line to buy donuts. Today, you do not have to buy donuts and you can chose which type of free donut you would like.
