Where to get free doughnuts – National Doughnut Day

Happy National Doughnut Day everyone!  To some of you, this may be your first celebration, while others have been waiting an entire year for the free doughnuts today.

Well, I highly doubt anybody has really been waiting for today, but it is a nice random day that people who love doughnuts can celebrate the great tastes of doughnuts and save some money.

National Doughnut Day surprisingly wasn’t created by one of the doughnut companies to try and sell more products.  It was actually started in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War II.  The Salvation Army was the group responsible for making this day.

There are a few different doughnut locations offering different doughnut deals for this “holiday”.

Where to get free doughnuts today:

Krispy Kreme 

Krispy Kreme created an event page on Facebook to get the word out about National Doughnut Day.  Stop into any Krispy Kreme location today, June 1, and you can get any flavored doughnut for free.  There is no purchase necessary, you just have to show up and ask for your free doughnut.

Dunkin’ Donuts

You still get a free doughnut, but a purchase is necessary to get it.  Buy any Dunkin’ beverage today and you’ll get a free doughnut.  So for those of you that go in for your Dunkin’ Donuts coffee anyways, you might as well come add on your free treat too.

LaMar’s Doughnuts

This is a smaller chain of doughnut shops out of Colorado and throughout the midwest.  They have a big standing throughout the midwest.  Just like Krispy Kreme they are giving away free doughnuts with no strings attached.

Tim Horton’s

Tim Horton’s Facebook page is advertising a free doughnut for National Doughnut Day as well, kind of like Krispy Kreme.  The “big catch” is you have to like their page.  Like their Facebook page and you will get a free doughnut coupon.

Winchell’s Doughnut House is opting out of this day’s celebration for some reason.

National Doughnut Day – Free Doughnut

Krispy Kreme has been a staple to southeastern American doughnut fans since 1937 when they opened their doors to the first location in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  Within 20 years Krispy Kreme had expanded their operations to make them a doughnut behemoth throughout the southeast region of the United States.

Krispy Kreme History

The first Krispy Kreme location opened up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina by Vernon Rudolph.  Rudolph helped his uncle start a doughnut shop in Nashville during the Great Depression that ended up failing because of the harsh times.  They moved back to Winston-Salem and opened a Krispy Kreme location using the original yeast doughnut recipe that they used in Nashville.

This location started out selling just to grocery stores (which they still do now).  The recipe was so great that they were able to expand quickly and begin selling directly to customers as well.  It did help that the first location was across from the Salem College and Academy.

Krispy Kreme’s major competition is Dunkin’ Donuts.

Krispy Kreme became extremely popular thanks to their hot and fresh doughnuts that customers could buy right off of the conveyor belt.  The original stores started with just the “Original Glazed Doughuts” but they have expanded to other flavors over the years.

You can still get the Original Glazed Doughnuts in Krispy Kreme stores and even in grocery  stores and convenience stores.  They also expanded to flavors like:

  • Glazed Cinnamon
  • Chocolate Iced Glazed
  • Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles
  • Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled
  • Dulce de Leche
  • Chocolate Iced Custard Filled
  • Glazed Raspberry Filled
  • Glazed Lemon Filled
  • Glazed Cruller
  • Maple Iced Glazed
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon Bun
  • Cinnamon Twist
  • Cinnamon Apple Filled
  • Glazed Kreme Filled
  • Powdered Strawberry Filled
  • Traditional Cake
  • Chocolate Iced Cake
  • Chocolate Iced Glazed Cruller
  • Powdered Cake
  • Glazed Chocolate Cake
  • Glazed Blueberry
  • Glazed Sour Cream
  • Apple Fritter
  • New York Cheesecake
  • Caramel Kreme Crunch

If these doughnut flavors and types aren’t enough for you, they also have seasonal and promotional flavors.  At the time of this writing Krispy Kreme is advertising Glazed Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Icing as well as a Key Lime Kreme Pie Doughnut.

If regular doughnuts aren’t your thing, there is always an option for other menu items.  Mini doughnuts are just that, miniature doughnuts.  They are available in original glazed, chocolate iced glazed, and chocolate iced with sprinkles.  They also have doughnut holes, much like Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins.
