Get Out and Grab a Doughnut

It’s National Doughnut Day! It is never too late to grab some sweet fried dough, filled or not, with a topping of your preference. Did you know there are actually two correct spellings for the word doughnut? According to the Grammarist website, “the dictionary approved spelling is doughnut, but the shortened donut has been around since the late 1800s but wasn’t popularized until the late 20th century when the successful American doughnut chain Dunkin’ Donuts made it ubiquitous”. Whether you spell it doughnut or donut, you should go out and enjoy one! If you are in Modesto, you have got to check out the local favorite Mr. T’s!
