National Cream Filled Donut Day

When : Always September 14th

National Cream Filled Donut Day is a sugary, sweet day. Dontcha just love special days like today!? Sure, you were watching your weight. Then, along comes a special day that is just packed with calorie and carbs. And, that special day encourages you to eat one of your favorite breakfast treats.... cream filled donuts.

There is not shortage of food related "special days". We are certainly glad that someone chose to create a day just for cream filled donuts. It truely is a special treat.

The most popular cream filled donuts are chocolate cream and vanilla cream. This author's favorite is banana cream. But, they are hard to find. Whatever flavor is your favorite, just make sure the day does not go by, without having one or more cream filled donuts.

Origin of National Cream Filled Donut Day:
We found no factual information about this special day. Nor, did we find the creator.......yet.

There was some reference to this as a "National Day". Most food related holidays are called "National". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
