It only comes but once a year: a day of celebrating the doughnut, whether shaped like a tire, log, ball, or twist. Actually, we celebrate it pretty often, but this has to be the holiest of do(ugh)nut-eating days. No matter how you spell it, you should eat one today.
Dunkin' Donuts is giving away free donuts with the purchase of any drink, and at Krispy Kreme they're just giving away straight-up free ones, no purchase necessary. Or, if you're willing to fork over a couple bucks, check out our National Doughnut Honor Roll for favorite bakeries and cafes all over the country.
Or, maybe you want to make some yourself?
