Today is one of the great special days of the year: National Doughnut Day. I don't think there is a National Lasagna Day...nor is there a National Sausage Egg McMuffin Day. But there is a donut national day and thats because donuts rock!
The Salvation Army created the holiday, which is always celebrated on the first Friday in June, in 1917 to boost the morale of troops fighting in WWI. According to holidayinsights.com, those doughnuts were fried in oil inside an American soldier's metal helmet.
I like to consider myself an expert. I have the pounds to prove it. There is Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts and other great places. With that said, the best donut is a little shop in downtown Salt Lake City, Banbury Cross. If you haven't been there or if it has been a while, celebrate National Donut day next week--they won't mind.
