Recipes for coffee frappes can be found in the late 1890s. These blended beverages refreshed and delighted. Adding cream gave the beverages a smoother texture. Even a blended, frozen tea on a warm day took on a whole new flavor. The tastes and recipes have come a long way from their beginnings in the 1980’s. Now you can have your choice of places to get one. McDonald’s, Starbucks, Dunkin, and even make them at home. You can pick your favorite flavor or use a copycat recipe out there.

National Doughnut Day

So This Friday, June 7th is National Doughnut Day.

You can join in the commemoration of this unique day with some awesome treats today.  Places like Dunkin, Krispy Kreme, Hurts Doughnut, and many others will be offering free and special pricing in honor of National Doughnut Day.

Where did this holiday come from and why didn’t I learn about this as a child?  Turns out it started in Salvation Army canteens in WWI.  The doughnuts and volunteers who handed them out to soldiers became so popular they were termed, Doughnut girls.  The tradition continued in WWII with over 4,000 volunteers manning canteens all over Europe for the soldiers.  

The popularity continues as we honor those volunteers with National Doughnut day. Now I know these are probably not a recommended food on your diet, however maybe just 1 for yourself or a treat for the kids on summer vacation makes todays list of things to do.
