Good morning and happy National Donut Day!
Are you celebrating today? I sure hope so. It’s quite the delicious day!
When Mal woke up this morning, the first words out of his mouth were: “NATIONAL DONUT DAY!!!” And then, “Let’s get free donuts!” He was absolutely pumped and immediately jumped out of bed
like a freak. In fact, he was so excited, he got Murphy all riled up, thinking he was coming along for the ride too. (We actually ended up leaving the pug at home because he gets SO EXCITED and barks non-stop when we order coffee at the drive-up window because he thinks he is getting a treat. A pug never forgets.)
Anyway, Mal and I drove to the Dunkin’ Donuts on route 18 in Weymouth to get iced coffees and free donuts. FYI for the locals: This location actually makes all of their donuts in-house, so they’re the freshest and best-tasting around. Other Dunkin Donuts get their donuts shipped in from the Brockton location, so they’re not nearly as amazing in my opinion.
On the drive to Dunkin’ Donuts, Mal and I started talking about what donuts we were going to get to celebrate National Donut Day. He knew immediately what he wanted (chocolate frosted), but it took me a little while to decide. I started listing off some top contenders, which Mal thought was kind of funny because, apparently, according to him, I like “old people” donut flavors, like Old Fashioned and Butternut. I felt like a boring, ol’ fuddy-duddy, so I eventually went with a chocolate frosted donut with rainbow sprinkles, which was an excellent choice and awesome way to celebrate the day.
As far as what donut I would NOT get to celebrate National Donut Day (Mal and I talked about that too), the Peep donut definitely topped my list. It was a glazed donut with magenta frosting and a Peep in the middle. It just didn’t look appetizing. Actually, pretty much any donut with bright pink or purple frosting didn’t look good to me. I’d also probably pass on the jelly- or cream-filled donuts. Obviously, I love sugar, but it’s almost like too much sugar in each bite, ya know?
