This time-honored treat roots back to the battlefields of France during World War I, when the Salvation Army workers served coffee and doughnuts to the brave soldiers in the trenches. During this time, rations were poor, so the idea of the doughnut was conceived as a means of boosting the morale and bringing the soldiers good cheer. To this date, the iconic treat still has the same humbling effect and can bring people of all ages great comfort and joy!
