RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Even though most people admitted to going to Dunkin' Donuts on Friday morning for the coffee, Ridgefield residents agreed that National Donut Day is a clever marketing tool.

In honor of the day, the national chain offered a free doughnut with the purchase of any beverage to those who came into the store.

“I don’t actually like doughnuts,” said Ridgefield resident Nathan Zezula. But he said he figured the doughnut retailer would push the special day with more than just a sign at the cash register.

For Peggy Fallon of Brewster, N.Y., getting a doughnut is a special treat.

“I do like doughnuts, but only every once and a while,” she said. If she had to pick a favorite – it's Boston Crème.

Ridgefield resident Katie MacDonald said she comes to Dunkin' Donuts only for the coffee but called the promotion pretty cool.

“On National Donut Day, they should give out free doughnuts,” MacDonald said.

National Donut Day was started after World War I when the Salvation Army honored those who gave out doughnuts to soldiers during the war. In  2009, the national chains and some local bakeries began to give out free doughnuts in honor of the day.
