Dunkin’: Buy joe, get free Donut Day sinker
For some, Christmas is the most special of days. For others, birthdays take the cake. But for a rare breed, no holiday is more worthy of veneration than tomorrow's National Doughnut Day, which Dunkin' Donut plans to celebrate with a doughnut deal.
When it comes to adulating the sinker, few can match Dunkin', the Canton-based chain of coffee-and-baked-goods stores. (Indeed, the chain is so focused on its namesake product that its breakfast scientists have long plumped for the Americanized spelling of donut.)
In honor of National Doughnut Day - oops, we mean National Donut Day - the chain said that participating stores tomorrow "will give every customer a free donut of their choice, with the purchase of any beverage, limit one per customer."
Dunkin' also plans to announce the winner of its "Create Dunkin's Next Donut" contest. One entry that caused much hubbub at a contest Web page was the sm'OREO. Some ingredients? Marshmallow filling, OREO Cookie Pieces, Graham Cracker Crunch, and chocolate frosting.
Whew! Down a dozen of those, and a giddy gourmet is sure to be embonpoint - in good condition, and with a physique that boasts generous racing lines to boot.
