This Friday, June 7, is National Doughnut Day! Yes, Doughnut Day is a real thing, and it was actually created by the Salvation Army in Chicago way back in 1938 to honor those who served doughnuts to soldiers during WWI.
Not sure where you can celebrate this uber important holiday in the Big Apple? Do-nut worry, we’ve created this guide to National Doughnut Day in NYC so that you don’t miss out on all of the freebies and deals the city has to offer!
Dunkin’ Donuts – FREE Classic Doughnut with Beverage Purchase
As Dunkin’ Donuts once said, “A day for doughnuts is a day for America!” Stop by one of their locations on Friday for a FREE classic doughnut with the purchase of a beverage all day long – Double Chocolate, Vanilla Frosted, Boston Kreme, Old Fashioned, you name it!
Perfect for breakfast, an afternoon pick-me-up, or even an after-work treat (in case you’re looking for a convenient time of day to break your diet for one of these frosted delights).
Krispy Kreme – FREE Doughnut (No Purchase Necessary)
Krispy Kreme wants YOU to help them give away 1 million doughnuts this Friday in honor of National Doughnut Day! Anyone who stops by a Krispy Kreme location will be able to choose their favorite doughnut and get it for free.
Better be on your way because when Krispy Kreme hits that 1 million, they are going to offer another giveaway later this month – a taste of their newest creation that will be unveiled later in June!
Doughnut Plant – FREE Mini Carnival Sprinkles Doughnuts

Tim Hortons – Flavor Unveiling
Last but not least (although not a freebie), Tim Hortons is celebrating National Doughnut Day by unveiling a brand new flavor – the Churro Doughnut!
In case your mouth isn’t watering yet, this new creation is a Honey Cruller Doughnut filled with sweet caramel and topped with cinnamon sugar for a “hole” lot of deliciousness!
It will be available on Friday at participating locations and available nationally on June 12. Make sure to grab one soon because it is only available for a limited time!
