National Doughnut Day – Celebs and Doughnuts

Written by June 1, 2012

Spokeo doughnuts

Happy National Doughnut Day!! We all enjoy the delicious fried treats, probably not as much as Mr. Homer Simpson, but definitely enough to celebrate today.

National Doughnut Day actually started in 1938 with the Salvation Army to honor the women who served doughnuts to U.S. soldiers during World War I. Way to go!

In celebration of this great day, we’ve profiled the celebs who love to indulge in the glazed confections.

* Beyonce Knowles – according to PopEater and Self magazine Mrs. Jay-Z is focused on cardio exercise but when it comes to indulgences, she loves herself some Krispy Kremes.

* Liam Hemsworth – The Hunger Games hottie told Details magazine that he can go through two dozen Krispy Kremes in one sitting. “It’s ridiculous.”

* Katy Perry – We have no evidence that she eats them, but a few years ago, Katy was such a fan of doughnuts that she donned one as an accessory to shield herself from the paparazzi.

* Bill Clinton – He may have had to change his diet for health reasons, but while in the White House the former President was said to have doughnuts from Connecticut shipped to him.

* Kim Kardashian – She’s tweeted about them occasionally and at her wedding to Kris Humphries, goody bags included heart-shaped Krispy Kreme donuts.

We hope you enjoy a delicious treat today, whether glazed or filled with jelly. YUM!
