Donuts on donuts on a donut? The Inception Donut will blow your mind. (The Cinnamon Snail)

Donuts or doughnuts? No matter how you spell them, they're delicious.

Whether you like 'em deep-fried, cake-style, stuffed with jelly or cream, sprinkled with powdered sugar, sprinkles or chocolate-frosted, these doughy delights are undeniably delicious. 

National Doughnut Day was created in 1938 when the Salvation Army used the pastry to raise money during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.

To help celebrate National Doughnut Day, plenty of national and local places are offering sweet deals and discounted donuts. 

Today, Dunkin Donuts is giving out a free donut with any beverage purchase. If Krispy Kreme is more your style, pick up a free donut at any of their U.S. or Canadian locations, no purchase necessary.

At Giant Eagle, purchase a half dozen and another six donuts free. Entermann's may give you free donuts for a year-- just register online today for chance to win.

You can also get sweet deals on non-donut purchases at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Store locations are offering 20 percent off all orders with promo code THX200. Use the code ENJOY10 to take 10 percent off of your Mrs. Fields purchase today.

If you've got a little extra dough to spent on your ringed treat, look no further than these shops. These hot donut spots across the U.S. are offering some of the most insane donuts we've ever seen.
