Krispy Kreme celebrating 85 years with 85 cent doughnuts

(WPDE) — Krispy Kreme will be celebrating 85 years of sweetness with a week of deals, which includes giving away 8,500 years of original glazed doughnuts.

Starting Monday, July 11 through Thursday, July 14, every Krispy Kreme doughnut shop in the U.S. will randomly choose multiple guests each day to receive an 85th birthday card worth free Original Glazed doughnuts for a year – one dozen per month through June 2023.

Also, on Friday, July 15 customers 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,” said Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme Chief Marketing Officer.

The doughnut shop is also continuing its Beat the Pump promotion by setting the price for a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts based on the national average price of a gallon of regular gasoline, each Wednesday through Aug. 31.
