On Friday, July 12 only, guests who purchase any dozen at regular price can receive an Original Glazed dozen for just 87 cents – limit two dozen when purchased in-shop and via drive-thru and one dozen when purchased online for pickup or delivery at participating shops across the U.S. while supplies last.

Krispy Kreme was founded in 1937 by Vernon Rudolph, who began selling doughnuts to grocery stores. Romanced by the irresistible scent of doughnut-making drifting into the streets, passersby asked if they could buy hot, fresh doughnuts. So, Rudolph cut a hole in an outside wall and began selling Original Glazed doughnuts directly to customers on the sidewalk. 

Nearing nine decades later, Krispy Kreme continues to evolve its menu with a wide range of delicious doughnut innovations while the Original Glazed doughnut remains just as melt-in-your-mouth delicious and iconic as ever, enjoyed by all generations, especially when the brand’s beloved Hot Light is on.
