Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is celebrating a birthday on Friday, July 27, and the chain wants make sure everyone has an opportunity to get in on the fun!
To mark 81 years since Krispy Kreme’s founding, on Friday, doughnut lovers can purchase one dozen of the classic original glazed doughnuts for just $1 with the purchase of any dozen doughnuts at participating shops across the United States and Canada.
Though this promotion has been a yearly occurrence for Krispy Kreme for quite some time, this year, for the first time ever, the chain is sweetening the deal with the release of the new glazed confetti doughnut. This celebratory confection, which will only be available from Friday, July 27, to Thursday, August 2, is a modern Krispy Kreme take on the nostalgic fan-favorite birthday cake flavor.
The festive treat features a vanilla birthday cake-inspired dough with confetti sprinkles throughout, glazed in classic original glaze, and lightly topped with colorful sprinkles. It will only be available at participating shops, while supplies last.
“One of our favorite times during the year is when we get to celebrate our birthday with our fans,” Mike Tattersfield, chief executive officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, said via a press release. “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.”
As can be expected, Twitter was psyched about the $1 doughnut promotion and about the newest addition to the Krispy Kreme family. Check out some reactions below:
