There are a couple of food companies for which my arteries would thank me for boycotting. My heart — and mind — however, would throw a protest so disruptive that any thought of forswearing the treats of said company would be absolutely out of the question, lest I die instantly of emotional shock.
Entenmann’s is one of those companies. From their signature packaged cake donuts to their lunch-box ready Little Bites, Entenmann’s has always held a special place in my heart, my stomach, and yes, clogging up my bloodstream.
All nutritional joking aside, the folks at Entenmann’s do a great job, and not just when it comes to baking up sinfully sweet treats that are good enough to make even the most haughty pastry fans eschew their local bakery. Each year, Entenmann’s teams up with The Salvation Army for National Donut Day (June 1st, for you health freaks) in remembrance of the fine women who served up donuts to soldiers during the First World War. This marks the 75th anniversary of National Donut Day, and once again, Entenmann’s has a great contest going online where you can win some awesome prizes, including free donuts for a year. The best part? By supporting the cause, and liking the company of facebook, you’ll be helping to raise money for The Salvation Army.
And what does that mean? Well, it means you’ll be helping an orginization which serves more than 64 millions meals to people in need each year, and an organization which provides some 10 million nights of shelter for the homeless. Now that’s a cause which is a lot more important than a sugar fix, and one this blog can get behind.
And to further help Entenmann’s get the word out, we’re going to send one lucky reader a great prize pack that includes $10 worth of Entenmann’s Coupons and a special plush DONUT GUY (!!!) toy. All you have to do to be entered in the random drawing is a leave a comment here saying you’ve liked Entenmann’s on Facebook, and tell us what you’d like to buy with your coupons. You can also tell me what your favorite donut, but you don’t have to. Just leave a comment by Monday, May 21st to be eligible. Good luck, and thanks for supporting a great cause!
