Krispy Kreme Is Turning Their Donuts Green to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
Plus, you can win a year of free donuts!
Krispy Kreme clearly loves the holidays almost as much as we do, because they never miss an opportunity to celebrate. Whether it’s their gingerbread donuts during the winter months or conversation heart donuts for Valentine’s Day, they always find a way to make holiday celebrations sweeter.
This year, Krispy Kreme is upping the ante for St. Patrick’s Day by bringing back their O’riginal Glazed donuts and giving customers the chance to win tons of free donuts (more on that later). The O’riginal Glazed is made with green dough, making it the perfect breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day. They’ll be available for a couple of days before the holiday, too—participating Krispy Kremes across the country will have them beginning on Friday, March 15, and ending on St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, March 17.
Krispy Kreme also seems to be taking a few cues from Willy Wonka, because donut fans across the country will have the chance to win a Golden Dozen Pass. It’s even better than a golden ticket, because it’ll win you free glazed donuts for the year. And instead of just a select few, thousands across the country are going to win a year’s supply of free donuts. According to Krispy Kreme, there will be multiple Golden Dozen winners each day the green donuts are available at every participating Krispy Kreme across the country, so your chances aren't bad.
If you really love donuts, you could stop by all three days to increase your odds of winning one of those coveted Golden Dozen Passes. Finding one doesn’t entitle you to an unlimited supply of donuts, unfortunately—according to Krispy Kreme, you’ll be able to get one dozen free donuts per month until St. Patrick’s Day 2020. Still, that’s 144 free donuts in a year, which is more than enough reason for us to visit Krispy Kreme a time or two on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Just remember to wear green on the 17th to match your donut!
