National Doughnut Day 2015: Get a freebie at Rise 'N Roll, Dunkin' Donuts or Krispy Kreme

Doughnuts are a time-honored breakfast of champions and the secret to winning over coworkers when you walk in with a few dozen.

You can score breakfast for free on Friday, June 5, for National Doughnut Day. 

Rise ’N Roll Bakery is giving a free cinnamon caramel doughnut to the first 300 customers at each of its stores on Friday, no purchase necessary.

Stop by the  Middlebury bakery (1065 N. 1150 W., 574-825-4032), the Nappanee location (70509 S.R. 19, 574-773-9012) or the new Mishawaka shop (3915 Grape Road, 574-272-7473) to try your luck snagging one.

Dunkin’ Donuts is one of the chains participating in the celebration and is giving a free doughnut all day to customers who purchase a beverage, according to a news release from the company. Croissant Donuts and Cheesecake Squares are excluded from the freebies, according to the release. 

The Goshen location, 906 W. Pike St., and the Elkhart location, 335 C.R. 6, are both participating, the restaurants confirmed. 

Krispy Kreme is also handing out glazed rings all day Friday with no purchase necessary, according to its website. You can get any variety of doughnut at the Mishawaka location, 5615 N. Main St. 

The sugar surge might only last a few minutes, but the history of National Doughnut Day actually stretches back to 1938, according to the news release from Dunkin’ Donuts.

It was established by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I and the tradition has stayed alive on the first Friday of June, according to the release.
