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.

Didn’t know there was a National Doughnut Day? We didn’t either.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the holiday was started by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the sugary confection.
