Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is celebrating 85 years of serving its iconic Original Glazed Doughnuts with a week of deals for fans, including giving away 8,500 years-worth of free Original Glazed dozens.
From Monday, July 11 through Thursday, July 14, every participating Krispy Kreme shop in the US will randomly select multiple guests each day to receive a Krispy Kreme 85th birthday card worth free Original Glazed doughnuts for a year (one dozen per month through June 2023). A total of 8,500 years of free doughnuts will be given away.
Additionally, on Friday, July 15, Krispy Kreme fans can get an Original Glazed dozen for just 85 cents with the purchase of any regular price dozen.
“We love celebrating Krispy Kreme’s birthday every year with our fans. But this year is special, we’re turning 85! So we’re going to have a weeklong celebration by giving 8,500 people a year’s worth of free Original Glazed doughnuts,” says Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer. “And on Friday you can get a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for just 85 cents when you buy any dozen.”
As part of its “Sweet New Deal” for America announced in June, Krispy Kreme is offering guests through Labor Day a free Original Glazed doughnut at all shops that have a Hot Light any time the Hot Light is on – every day, every night – no purchase necessary.
The chain also is continuing its Beat the Pump promotion as part of the Sweet New Deal, setting the price for a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts based on the national average price of a gallon of regular gasoline, each Wednesday through August 31. Guests can get up to two dozen Original Glazed doughnuts at participating shops, via drive-thru and for pick-up by ordering online and through the Krispy Kreme app.
