High school and college graduates are unfortunately faced with canceled ceremonies in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. To make life a little sweeter, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering a special deal to the class of 2020.
The doughnut chain’s new “Graduate Dozen” is being made free to any high school or college senior – no purchase necessary – who visits a Krispy Kreme dressed in their graduation cap and gown or “Class of 2020” shirt, letterman jacket or other swag on Tuesday, May 19.
Customers can also purchase the new assorted dozen, which spells out “2020” in three rows, May 18-24 via drive‑thru and by ordering online at Krispy Kreme’s website or app for door-side pickup or delivery.
The Graduate Dozen includes Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles and Strawberry Iced with Sprinkles doughnuts along with a variety of fan favorites dressed up to honor the Class of 2020:
- Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled is filled with our classic Kreme, dipped in chocolate icing and decorated with a “2”

“We feel for all of the high school and college seniors. We wish they had that moment of walking across the stage and getting their diploma,” says Dave Skena, chief marketing officer for Krispy Kreme. “We can’t replace that … but we thought we could help them safely have a little fun and enjoy a special ‘Graduate Dozen’ on us. Moms, dads, friends and family can buy this ‘Graduate Dozen’ all week long to honor their favorite graduates, but only seniors can get one for free.”
