Furthermore, anyone that buys any dozen doughnuts between now and July 4th will also get a dozen of Original Glazed doughnuts for free. That deal's only available at participating locations, so you may want to call ahead of your visit.


"This Fourth of July, many Americans are going to celebrate with family and friends not just our independence but also emerging freedom from the pandemic. We're making these gatherings the sweetest parties of the summer with patriotic doughnuts and a fireworks-worthy deal," Krispy Kreme chief marketer Dave Skena says in a press release.

The last new holiday is a separate box that includes 20 mini-flag doughnuts in a special star-spangled box.
