National Donut Day held annually on the first Friday of June, was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 in Chicago to honor the “Donut Lassies”, who served these treats to soldiers during World War I, and to help raise needed funds during the Great Depression. While partnering with Entenmann’s bakery for half a decade the Salvation Army continues to support our military servicemen and their families and I have to say as a daughter raised in a military family, I truly appreciate their efforts.
Fact: One of my most favorite snacks since childhood is Entenmann’s powdered donuts and a big ole glass of cold milk! There is just something nostalgic about eating those powdery bites of heaven and having the powdery smile to prove it.
