The 79th-Annual National Donut Day will be celebrated on Friday, June 3, and CRUST has big plans to celebrate!
CRUST’s Donut Vault will be opened for just one day, and you’ll find we’re bringing back a huge assortment of donuts to mark the occasion. Pick up a few for the office, and you’ll be a hero all day long. We’re opening at 6 a.m. on National Donut Day, so you’ll have plenty of time to pick up your order that morning.
National Donut Day was originally created in 1938 by The Salvation Army to honor the women who served donuts and hot coffee to soldiers behind the front lines during World War I. We’d like to continue the tradition of giving back, so CRUST will donate a portion of sales on June 3 toward summer lunch programs for students in our community. The more you buy; the more we give!
Take a look at the day’s selections and place your special orders by 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 1. Please note we require pre-payment on all special orders.
Purchase 12 donuts, and the 13th is free!**

FOURTH-ANNUAL “CREATE CRUST’s NEXT DONUT” CONTEST
Through Sunday, May 22, CRUST is asking you to submit your ideas for a new donut flavor via our Facebook page. We’ll narrow those ideas down to a few top contenders, do a little donut Research & Development in our pastry kitchen, and announce a winner on National Donut Day! The winner will be notified via Facebook and invited to taste-test the finished product before it hits our counters.
Last year’s winner was submitted by Jeanne Miller of New Hudson. You’ll see her American Berry Crumb Donut (The ABCD) as part of our Donut Day 2016 line-up!
Now this contest is very informal, and we haven’t written up a bunch of rules or disclaimers. It’s just meant to be fun and give our loyal fans a voice in the creative process. So we hope you’ll participate, have some fun and help bring CRUST’s next donut variety to Flour Power members everywhere!
Happy National Donut Day from the baking company!
