Winn-Dixie celebrates National Donut Day with free donut hole

WHEN: Friday, June 5, during regular store hours

WHERE: Your neighborhood Winn-Dixie stores

WHY: To celebrate a 78-year tradition started in Chicago, Illinois, by the Salvation Army in 1938 to raise funds during the Great Depression.

    Great article.
    Like anyone in their right mind is going to run to a WinnDixie to get a free donut hole. Not even a whole donut but a donut hole. What a silly dumb promotion.

  2. Don says...

    Just FYI: Tim Hortons coffee/ donut stores call these donut centers -TIMBITs – a real little kid pleaser.

    Jeff, nothing for nothing, but I’m sure that about a zillion of your faithful readers – amongst whom I am pleased to be one! – wonders every day:
    How does JEFF EATs stay in shape and How come he doesn’t weigh 500 pounds?
    All The Best!

    Just maybe if they gave me 3 dozen donuts Id go to a Winn-Dixe.

  4. ksr says...

    That 1 donut hole offer is laughable.

    A donut hole.
    What a joke.

    A DONUT HOLE????????????????
    Now you know why Publix ate Winn-Dixie’s lunch.
    What an absurd dumb promotion.

  7. PC says...

    What a joke. Keep in mind your kid can get a free cookie at the Publix bakery 365 days a year. Well maybe 364, I believe they’re closed on Christmas.

      Publix is closed Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. I keep putting in for Yom Kippur, but they do not respond…

    It’s columns like this that have made me a steady reader for years.
    The Sun Sentinel will feature this promotion as if it was something terrific for its readers. You on the other hand show the promotion for what is , moronic.

    • Young Court says...

      I agree with you.
      Jeff doesn’t sugar coat things.
      He says what most of us are only willing to think.

    dunkin will give you a free donut if you buy a drink. One single hole is pretty funny. Notice limited supply on the holes.
