This Friday, June 5th is National Donut Day. It’s exactly what everyone who loves baked sugary treats needs in their life: a day to celebrate donuts.

Where to celebrate National Donut Day

National Donut Day means there are donut deals to be had.

Krispy Kreme: You can choose any donut you’d like, and no purchase is necessary on National Donut Day.

Dunkin’ Donuts: Stop by on Friday for a free donut with the purchase of any drink.

Entenmann’s: There’s no free donut on Friday, but you do have the chance be one of 100 to win free donuts for a year in celebration of National Donut Day.

Shipley Do-Nuts: Between 5 am and noon on Friday, you’ll get a free glazed Do-Nut.

The best and worst of donuts

Not all donuts are created equal, of course. Some are amazing and some are so disgusting, they don’t deserve to be called donuts.

We have compiled a list of the most disgusting donuts ever.  These aren’t those “so wrong they’re right” foods. People have found a way to take the world’s best breakfast dessert and ruin it. But don’t worry, we’ve countered these disgusting confections with some of the most amazing donuts ever. Fortunately, the good donuts of the world outweigh the bad.

Happy National Donut Day!

Wasabi Cheese donut

Nothing brings out the sweet goodness of a donut like wasabi.

The Purple Goat donut

Some fancy things are better left for fancy experiences, like maybe tea parties or something. Way to destroy breakfast joy with purple goat cheese (what is that?) and lavender glaze (again, what is that?).

Chilli Cheese Donut

There's no reason to take a perfectly good donut and cover it with shredded cheese and chili flakes. And yet, here we are.

The Monte Cristo donut

Is it a breakfast sandwich? It is a donut? I don't know. Too much confusion with the melted cheese, ham and strawberry jam in between glazed donuts.

Irish Car Bomb donut

Combining all the good things in life — a donut, Bailey's Irish cream and Guiness — this donut is from a shop that features a few of the worst. But if this donut is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Voodoo Doll donut

This made the list more for what it is than any unique flavor combo (it's a "raised yeast doughnut filled with raspberry jelly topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake"). But can you go wrong with a donut in the shape of a voodoo doll?

Pinup Girl donut

It's an apple bourbon fritter with bacon and it makes me very, very hungry.

Oreo Ice Cream Burger donut

Don't let the burger part gross you out — there's no actual meat in this magical dessert donut.

Chart Topper donut

I wasn't sure whether this should go on the worst or the best list because it's covered in Sriracha and peanut butter, but in the end, anything doused in Sriracha is the best.
