If you are a regular listener to our morning show, you know that Courtlin loves her nachos. It's her favorite go to food. But today is a celebration of one of MY favorite guilty pleasure foods. It's National Donut Day people! Oh, those wonderful, sweet, glazed and frosted ovals of joy...donuts!

I've been a fan ever since I was a kid. My parents didn't buy them a lot, but when they did they were gone! We lived in Anamosa so we didn't have access to the donut shops of Cedar Rapids. But every once in a while my parents would bring home donuts from Donutland. Oh, my what a treat! My favorite to this day are the Donutland blueberry cake donuts. My other favorite kinds of donuts? Well, I'm a sucker for a great Boston Creme or jelly filled donut. Or anything that has to do with chocolate I'll give a try.

There are some donut shops have deals today in honor of National Donut Day.

  • Dunkin' Donuts - They are offering a free donut with every drink purchase today.
  • Krispy Kreme - FREE donuts! No purchase necessary! Pick a donut off their menu for free today!

So stop counting calories and enjoy a donut or two today on National Donut Day! It's also nice to share! Here is my address.
