National Donut Day! Get Your Free One Here
It's been happening since the 1930s, when the Salvation Army started serving doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
Going on 100 years later, you and I can get a free doughnut (or 'donut') today, in almost any town in Northern Colorado! And donuts are happiness. Here's where to get those:
- Any Dunkin Donuts, if you buy a beverage.
- Mr. Yo's in Windsor, a favorite of mine, as if you get there early enough, you can get crazy stuff like Twix Bar doughnuts. And don't get me started on their apple fritters. Ohhhhh man.
- Peace, Love, and Little Donuts in Fort Collins. Tried them last weekend? A whole new level of deliciousness. Probably worth paying the same price for little donuts, honestly. Eat there more than once a year, however, and I would probably gain a hundred pounds.
- LaMar's on Drake & Shields.
- Donut Haus in Loveland.
On a side note, my three girls are HUGE Denver Bronco fans. Oh, they don't know a thing about the team other than they wear orange jerseys - and, if they win? King Soopers gives a free donut the next day. If you have a kid, or you still are one yourself, you know it's imperative that the Broncos win every game. (Maybe this year?)
