September 14th National Cream-filled Donut Day

Now here’s a day you can really sink your teeth into! And it is not just about the doughnut, it’s about the cream-filled donut! My favorite! You can fill a doughnut with a lot of different things. You can top a doughnut with a lot of different things. But if you want the best of both worlds… fill it with cream. Yes they are fattening, yes they are filled with carbs… but if you are going to have a doughnut why not go all the way! I’m sure anyone of the many doughnut shops can help you celebrate today, if you look around enough you might even find one for free.

How to celebrate – Have a cream filled doughnut. There are several different creams you can have it filled with so choose wisely. Learn how to make your own cream-filled doughnut.

National Doughnut Day was created by the Salvation Army in Chicago, 1938 as a fund raiser during the Great Depression. It also highlighted the service of the “Lassies” of World War 1 who were 250 female Salvation volunteers that went to Europe with the American troops to serve the soldiers doughnuts and remind them somewhat of the comforts of home and what they were fighting for

The same actions were repeated during World War 2 by the Red Cross volunteers called “Dollies”.
