This sweet deep fried favorite among many around the world is prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased… they come with various toppings and flavorings like sugar, chocolate, or maple glazing, and fillings like cream, jelly… 

However you got them, just enjoy them…

The idea for Donut Day began on the battlefields of France during World War I when Salvation Army workers served coffee and doughnuts to soldiers in the trenches. Rations were poor so the doughnut idea was conceived as a means of bringing the soldiers cheer. Doughnuts were not the reason Salvation Army workers were in the fighting zones of France. Those men and women were there primarily to give spiritual aid and comfort to the American soldier and his allies. They were there to be a link with home and family.
