Rock and Roll Donuts!

According to food writer, Julie R. Thomson of The Huffington Post, National Donut Day is celebrated both in June and in November. To celebrate take a look at this 1956 press photo issued by the Donut Institute in NYC. The photograph shows Lu Anne Warren,  a contestant for the nineteenth annual National Donut Week Queen. A highlight that year was  introducing the "new size in the hole of donuts". According to the press release, the new size was tailored to a "younger generation of dunkers influenced by the current rock and roll music craze".  Cheers to rock music, donuts and dunking!
