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.”
