Did you know June 1st marks an iconic American holiday?
National Doughnut Day...it's magically delicious, no?
To commemorate and celebrate the occasion, how about FREE doughnuts?
- My precious Dunkin' Donuts is giving away your choice of donuts with a beverage purchase.
- King of the "Hot & Now," Krispy Kreme is giving away one doughnut per customer, no purchase required.
Local donuteers in Chattanooga ~
- Julie Darling Donuts on North Shore's Frazier Avenue is giving away one of their treats with a beverage purchase.
- Tasty Delight Donuts on Jenkins Road will give you one of their doughnuts for free and they're asking for a donation to the Salvation Army.
And, what better time to republish my poetic tribute to Dunkin' Donuts? I can't help but play favorites, especially when it comes to that aromatically delectable coffee of theirs.
An Ode to Dunkin Donuts
Dunkin Donuts Coffee, aroma so fine,
Each morning I wake to this Scent of Divine.
We love you so much, we buy by mail order
Oh, no, could we be an addicted bean hoarder?!
Please say it ain't so! We just like our caffeine
From the best - and that's y'all - you, coffee machine!
One cup or two cups or dare I drink three?
Well, if I did that, all day would I pee!
And by nighttime, I'm sure sleep would elude
Ensuring next day a grouchy, bad mood.
But wait! There's a fix when insomnia lingers,
Sweet, sugared goodness all over your fingers!
Sprinkles and icing, doughnuts supreme
You won't find these treats at your Krispy Kreme!
You see, "Hot and Now" is all they can boast,
And here's why I love Dunkin Donuts the most:
Their coffee puts Starbucks, all others, to shame
Their doughnut perfection, I can't help but proclaim!
An edible rainbow, a colorful snack,
Delicious reasons I'll keep coming back.
