National Doughnut Day means free treats
Plenty of food items garner an annual homage, but National Doughnut Day is extra sweet. It comes with freebies.
The first Friday in June, we honor this empty-calorie treat. And so it is for NDD 2014. Here's where to celebrate.
At participating Dunkin' Donuts, get a free doughnut of your choice with the purchase of a beverage (while supplies last). That means you could try new flavor blueberry cobbler, or go with a classic glazed. DD is all over Long Island. Find the location nearest you: dunkindonuts.com.
Krispy Kreme no longer operates on LI, but if you're headed into the city, you'll want to go to 2 Pennsylvania Plaza, inside Penn Station, upstairs Amtrak level (krispykreme.com). KK is giving away one free doughnut -- pick a doughnut, any doughnut -- per person, no purchase necessary. New varieties include Brownie Batter and Birthday Cake Batter.
At Cumberland Farms, a minimart chain with several LI locations including Huntington Station and Plainview, buy a coffee or Chill Zone drink and get a free doughnut. Find a location near you: cumberlandfarms.com.
