Krispy Kreme Fans Won't Want To Miss This National Donut Day Deal

Mark your calendar for Friday, June 4, 2021, aka National Donut Day, aka the best day in June, aka the excuse you never needed to indulge. (Yes, there's a second "National Doughnut Day" in November, and that's strictly about celebrating how wonderful the food is.) Mark your calendars for that one too. June's doughnut day, however, is special. Like CNN once pointed out, National Donut Day is sweet, but it's also all about service. When you enjoy a doughnut on the first Friday of every June, what you're really doing is recognizing a group of Salvation Army volunteers (the "donut lassies") who made and distributed doughnuts for soldiers on the front lines during World War I.

This year, Krispy Kreme is gearing up to recognize another kind of public service. Everyone who stops by one of Krispy Kreme's storefronts on June 4 can claim one free doughnut. But, according to a statement released to Mashed, those who've been vaccinated have the right to two. Here are all the details.

How to get up to two free doughnuts at Krispy Kreme on June 4

"On National Donut Day, stop by and enjoy any doughnut you want on us.  And if you're helping us get past this pandemic by getting your COVID-19 vaccine, then THANK YOU and have a second doughnut on us," said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme in a statement. To explain in full: everyone has the right to one doughnut of choice, no purchase necessary on June 4 at Krispy Kreme. Those who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination can also cash in on Krispy Kreme's promise to give the vaccinated a free original glazed doughnut, any time, until December 31, 2021. All you have to do is show your vaccine card. 

Looking to host a National Donut Day party on June 4? Yeah, Krispy Kreme's thought of that too. With the purchase of any dozen doughnuts, the company will throw in an additional Original Glazed dozen for just $1.00. If you can't eat them all, there are lots of other worthwhile things you can do with them. For example, try to break the Guinness World Record for the tallest doughnut stack built in just one minute, a title currently held by Wisconsiner Rachael Cholak who succeeded in stacking a dozen back in 2018.
