2. During World War I, homesick soldiers in France were served doughnuts by Salvation Army volunteers to boost morale.
The female volunteers were known as “lassies,” and they made thousands of doughnuts fresh for soldiers. Reporting for duty was never so tasty.
9. The French version of doughnut holes are called pet de nonne, which translates to “Nun’s Fart.”
The French doughnut was allegedly created when a nun in Marmoutier was preparing food and farted. The other nuns laughed so hard that she accidentally dropped a spoonful of dough in a pot of boiling water. Hey, at least farts are good for something!
