Finally, someone is offering a perk to those who got vaccinated before it was being incentivized with cash payments. As the country continues to scale Covid-19 vaccinations, Krispy Kreme has found a way to show support for those who are protecting themselves and others by getting vaccinated. For me, staying healthy was incentive enough, but it’s nice to be acknowledged for doing the right thing . Here’s the deal:
For one week only, 8/30 – 9/5/21, anyone who shows their Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card at any US-based Krispy Kreme location will receive two free doughnuts: an Original Glazed doughnut and an Original Glazed Heart-shaped doughnut. If you are feeling generous, you might offer your heart-shaped doughnut to a friend, though I am pretty sure I would eat both doughnuts myself. Because free donuts.

The first Friday in June every year is celebrated in the United States as National Donut Day! This is a true thing. Today only you can get a free donut at all Dunkin Donuts (where you need to buy a beverage to get your Donut) and Krispy Kreme Donut Shops. Go! Go while you can! Get a free Donut!
Donuts are awesome. Celebrate National Donut Day (which is today) with a free donut at Dunkin Donuts, where you need to buy a coffee to get your freebie, or at Krispy Kreme, where your fried, sugary treat is free simply for the asking. Donuts!

National Donut Day is a real “celebration” of sorts, which was actually invented by the Salvation Army, and is celebrated on the first Friday in June. Please Google that fact yourself, because I am too exhausted right now to embed a hyperlink on this post. Various donut shop chains around the country are holding different promotions to celebrate this happy day honoring sugar-glazed fried dough.
At the Krispy Kreme, for example, you can get a free donut just by showing up at one of their stores. But at Dunkin Donuts here in New York, you have to buy a beverage in order to get your free donut. At the DD around the corner from where I work – which is basically located in a back alley – they weren’t exactly forthcoming about the “Buy a Bevvy and Get a Free Donut” promotion, but they did eventually acquiesce to giving me a vanilla-frosted donut thing for “free” after initially trying to charge me $3.49 for medium Hazelnut Coffee. Nothing is easy.
The Donut Burger is not a myth or culinary legend: it really exists. Originally invented by the late R&B singer, Luther Vandross when he ran out of hamburger buns and instead placed his delicious meaty burger between two glazed donuts, the donut burger and its assorted variations, such as the Bacon and Egg Brunch Burger really do exist. Imagine how much more popular, controversial (and deadly) McDonald’s would be if only they dared to add a McDonut Burger to their morning breakfast menu? Mmmm . . . so tasty!
