I have always enjoyed a good donut. One of my favorites is Entenmann’s Devils Food Chocolate covered donuts. Oh gosh and if you put the box in the fridge? Even better since our weather has been in the high 80’s low 90’s. I also enjoyed trying one of their National Donut Day sprinkled donuts.
NATIONAL DONUT DAY FUN FACTS
- National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending, home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines.
- With limited resources, these treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign, Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance, cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers in France, starting in 1917 during WWI.
- Entenmann’s® Bakery produces more than 780 million donuts a year to keep up with the demands of Entenmann’s donut lovers nationwide.
- The Rich Frosted Donut has been Entenmann’s® #1 seller since its introduction in 1973.
- The Salvation Army is located in more than 120 countries worldwide. In 2015, nearly 30 million Americans received assistance from The Salvation Army’s 3,500 officers, 60,700 employees, and 3.5 million volunteers.

Entenmann’s has been wonderful to offer Night Helper to have a giveaway of the same Prize Pack that I received.
