National Donut Day: Random, Fun Facts About Donuts [Infographic]

National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day, and several brands, including Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme, are offering free donuts (watch out for conditions though). The fine folks over at WhitePages have created an infographic with random, fun facts about donuts.

For example, did you know that:

• Ten people who live in the United States have the last name Doughnut or Donut?;
• Four-hundred-and-seventy people are named Fritter?;
• Boston has one donut shop for every 2,480 people making it the most donut-crazed city in the United States, and Long Beach, Calif., comes in second; and
• The top donut destination is VooDoo Doughnuts in Portland, Ore.

Dunkin’ Donuts is requiring customers to purchase any size beverage to get a free donut, and Tim Hortons is taking advantage of National Donut Day to engage people on social media – they’re requiring customers to like their Facebook page and print out a coupon that gets them a free donut with the purchase of one other item. Lamar’s is also offering free donuts.

And now, the infographic:
