If there's one thing better than donuts, it's super-cheap donuts. Likewise, if there's one thing better than a dozen donuts, it's two dozen donuts. On Friday, July 27, you get both -- two dozen super-cheap donuts -- thanks to Krispy Kreme's dozen-donuts-for-$1 promotion in celebration of its 81st birthday. Friday just got even better.
Here's the deal:
For one day only on Friday, you can buy any dozen donuts at your local Krispy Kreme and the donut purveyors will sell you another dozen Original Glazed donuts for just a buck, according to a company spokesperson. You don't need a coupon, and you don't even need to say "happy birthday!" to anyone to take advantage of the big discount. You'll get to walk out with two dozen donuts for just a little bit more than the price of one dozen donuts. Not bad. Just call ahead to make sure your nearest outpost is in on the deal, as some locations may not be participating.
In addition to the deal, Krispy Kreme is celebrating the occasion with the launch of an all-new donut that's essentially a birthday-inspired spin on its Original Glazed. It's called the Glazed Confetti Doughnut and it features vanilla birthday cake-flavored confetti dough, an Original Glazed coating, and colorful sprinkles on top. It's birthday cake distilled into fluffy donut form, which may or may not make it better than actual birthday cake (this insane birthday cake is an exception, though). You decide.
“One of our favorite times during the year is when we get to celebrate our birthday with our fans,” Krispy Kreme CEO Mike Tattersfield said in a statement. “In addition to offering a delicious dollar deal on an extra dozen of our Original Glazed Doughnuts, we’ve ‘birthday-ed’ up our awesome Original Glazed Doughnut, creating a whole new experience.”
