It’s National Donut Day, and a few places are running deals . . .

You can get a free donut at Krispy Kreme, no purchase necessary.  Dunkin’ has a free donut deal too if you buy a drink.  DiGiorno is also giving away a pizza-donut mashup on Twitter called DiGiornuts.  Here are a few donut stats . . .
