Happy National Donut Day Giveaway!

Spread the love

Did you know that National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending, home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines.

Thanks to my partnership with Entenmann’s, I have these fun facts and a terrific giveaway to share with you in honor of National Donut Day today.  Read on!

Happy National Donut Day Giveaway!

In the beginning, with limited resources, the donuts for soldiers treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign, Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance, cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers in France, starting in 1917 during WWI.

Today, we celebrate the sweetest holiday of them all National Donut Day and Entenmann’s would like to help you get the party started!

For the sixth consecutive year, Entenmann’s® and The Salvation Army are partnering to celebrate National Donut Day and the rich heritage behind it! To celebrate in 2016, Entenmann’s® is rolling out the NEW Entenmann’s® Rich Frosted Party Sprinkled Donut, an iconic treat made just for National Donut Day 2016. The Rich Frosted Party Sprinkled Donut combines the classic fan favorite, the Rich Frosted Donut, with a splash of colorful party sprinkles.

    I am not so sure about the name, but my favorite is the one you commonly see that has white icing and chopped peanuts on top. Looking over the selection at a bakery, and seeing all of the chocolate ones, you wouldn’t expect this one to be so good.
