Krispy Kreme to celebrate 80 years of its original glazed doughnut

On Friday, July 14, Krispy Kreme is celebrating the 80th birthday of its iconic glazed doughnuts with special promotions. Customers will be able to purchase a dozen original glazed doughnuts for 80 cents with the purchase of any dozen at regular menu price that day at participating shops in the United States and Canada.

“The joy created by our original glazed doughnut and its secret recipe spans generations, and that is certainly something to celebrate,” says Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “It’s remarkable that for 80 years, Krispy Kreme’s commitment to delivering world-class doughnuts the Krispy Kreme way – hot, fresh and now – has not changed.”

Recently, Krispy Kreme also announced the return of its Cake Batter doughnut. The special party doughnut is filled with a blend of yellow cake batter and White Kreme filling and topped with yellow icing and confetti sprinkles.

In addition to the celebratory special offers on Friday, celebrity franchisee Shaquille O’Neal is throwing a surprise birthday party with customers.
