The Best Donuts In Delaware Are Down At The Beaches

National Donut Day is fast approaching, according to National Day Calendar. So, that makes this the perfect time to tell you about a small shop at the Delaware beaches that is being called one of the best, by Yelp! National Donut Day First, let's get a little background about National Donut Day. Each year the donut holidays falls on the first Friday in June, making this Friday, June 7th National Donut Day here in Delaware. According to National Calendar Day, the origins of the donut date back to World War One and the Salvation Army Lassies, women who baked the donuts and served them to the troops. The lassies were hoping to give the men a sense of home with the fresh baked goods.
