Free doughnuts. You don’t have to say much more to get The Buzz hyped up.

Today is, yes, National Doughnut Day and both Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts are getting in on the action. Krispy Kreme is offering a free doughnut to anyone who stops by a store. Dunkin’ Donuts is giving one away to any customer who buys a drink.
