Doughnuts are among the most beloved handheld treats — they're literally full of possibilities! Doughnuts also appeal to all sorts of taste preferences, and come in everything from frosted to glazed to jelly-filled. With so much to love about them, it’s only fair that we honor this circular pastry with its own special day.

National Doughnut Day, which is observed on June 3 this year, was originated by The Salvation Army in 1938 as a way of honoring those who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. Now, it’s a fun excuse for restaurant chains nationwide to offer sweet discounts and freebies on doughnuts.


This is an occasion to be celebrated, and in honor of National Doughnut Day, 7-Eleven has a buy one, get one free doughnut deal for 7Rewards and Speedy Rewards members at participating 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes stores. This offer is in-store only and lasts from June 3 through June 5.
