Friday, June 3 is National Doughnut Day, and Datz and its sweet counterpart Dough will dish out exclusive treats in celebration.

All three Datz locations—in St. Petersburg, South Tampa and Riverview—will participate in the launch of its new Nashville hot chicken doughnut sandwich, while the standalone Dough storefront will offer a free doughnut with any purchase of a coffee or dessert.

Dough, located at 2602 S MacDill Ave. in South Tampa, will also use next week’s holiday to launch its newest and most Tampa-fied flavor yet—the guava and cheese doughnut.

Datz’s hot chicken sandwich is complete with fried chicken tenders tossed in a red-hot sauce, honey drizzle and pickles— all between two fluffy cinnamon sugar doughnuts. Known for its fried mac and cheese buns and cheddar-crusted tortillas, this sandwich is one of the newest additions to Datz's belly-busting menu.

Creative Loafing reached out to other doughnut hotspots like Supernatural Food & Wine, St. Pete’s Fray’s Donuts, and Tampa’s popular Nicola's Doughnut Shop, but none of those bakeries plan to celebrate National Doughnut Day next week.

National chains like Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme ran promotional deals for National Doughnut Day last year, but it’s unsure if they are doing anything special for next week’s holiday.

Coincidentally, June 3 is also National Egg Day, as South Tampa’s Datz will serve its egg-filled breakfast dishes all day-long. All three locations will also offer the chance to add egg to any of its sandwiches on the lunch and dinner menu as well.
