Get A Dozen Krispy Kreme Donuts For Only 80 Cents! (Video)
By Cooking Panda
The only thing better than a donut is a really, really cheap donut that’s almost free, am I right?
Krispy Kreme knows it. That’s why they’re offering one dozen Original Glazed donuts (let’s face it, those are the best kind) for only 80 cents to celebrate their 80th anniversary on July 14 — as long as you buy another dozen at regular price first, according to The Sacramento Bee.
The deal applies to most stores in the U.S. and Canada, and you don’t even need a coupon to cash in.
That’s probably going to come out to less than $10, as a dozen glazed donuts cost around $8 and a dozen of other types are closer to $9, putting you at under 40 cents per donut.
If you’re planning to chill by yourself at home and don’t really want to shovel 24 donuts into your mouth before they go stale, this might not be the deal for you (unless you want to go all-out and make a bunch of tasty desserts with leftover donuts!). But in the event that you have any important function to attend on July 14 or maybe just want to reward your office mates with a sweet treat, this might just be the ticket.
“The joy created by our Original Glazed doughnut and its secret recipe spans generations, and that is certainly something to celebrate,” Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, said in a statement, according to MLive. “It’s remarkable that for 80 years, Krispy Kreme’s commitment to delivering world-class doughnuts the Krispy Kreme way — hot, fresh and now — has not changed.”

The hot and fresh donut chain first opened its doors on July 13, 1937, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, notes The Sacramento Bee. Now, according to MLive, Krispy Kreme has more than 1,300 shops in 31 countries, and you can find their products in an estimated 12,000 other shops, like grocery and convenience stores.

Would you rather make your own donuts? Here are some outstanding yet easy recipes to celebrate the day:
If you want a quick donut recipe, it doesn’t get much easier than this. You can make donut rings too, but it is way faster to just roll your dough into little balls and be done with it. Want something even simpler? Try #2:
These two-ingredient pastries are the simplest you’ll ever make! They taste a little denser and more savory than your average yeast donuts, but they are still delicious and will absolutely kill that donut craving.
These brightly flavorful donuts are slightly “healthier” than the fried variety, and avoiding a vat of hot oil cuts down on the mess, too. But if you’d prefer, there’s no reason you can’t dump them in boiling oil.
This version uses the quick canned biscuit dough approach, although you are more than welcome to make your own dough from scratch if that’s more your style.
In about 40 minutes, you can have these moist, cinnamon sugar-coated yeast donuts topped with a dot of raspberry jam and crammed full of sweet cream cheese filling. You can have them all to yourself.
OK, not exactly making donuts from scratch, but if you happen to make or buy too many, this bread pudding is absolutely the perfect way to bring new life to a stale day-old dozen. There’s just one catch: you have to invite me over if you make this.

Why You Should Care About National Donut Day
By Cooking Panda
It’s National Donut Day, y’all!
We know that there are a ton of food holidays out there, but we have two great reasons to go all out celebrating this one – not only is there a rich and meaningful history surrounding the day, but you can also totally score free stuff. It’s truly a win-win situation.
You might be interested to learn that National Donut Day actually has a really cool history! The holiday goes back to World War I when the Salvation Army’s female volunteers would cook up donuts and hand out the sweet treats to American GIs overseas. This carried on through the Great Depression, and a Chicago Salvation Army declared National Doughnut Day in 1938 in order to raise a little extra money.
The “dough girls” or “dough lassies” continued the tradition during World War II.
During the Vietnam War, POW Orson Swindle even convinced his prison guards to serve sticky buns on November 10, which he convinced them was National Doughnut Day, a big holiday in America. This man was already a hero, but he totally leveled up that day.
So in a way, observing Donut Day is paying homage to our nation’s military history.
If that’s not enough to get you excited, there are tons of free donut deals. Most notably, Dunkin Donuts is giving out a free donut when you buy a drink, and at Krispy Kreme literally all you have to do is show up for a free donut.
If you’re in Australia, WE HAVE BIG NEWS: Krispy Kreme just released a thing of beauty called a “Big Apple Pie Donut” that legitimately looks like an actual pie. Check it out:
The lattice “crust” is made of white chocolate and cookie crumbs, while the rest of the donut is a standard one with apple pie filling inside. This is part of their American Classics line, which also includes the Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Campfire S’mores, and Coconut Cream Pie. We are super jealous! If you’re Down Under, give these donuts a try for us and report back.
If you can’t get your hands on those, but want something new, you must try these Glazed Donut Crunchkins:
These bite-sized candy poppers also come in Birthday Cake and Fudge Brownie flavors, and they are totally delicious, with a creamy outside coating and a light, crunchy center. If you’ve tried these, let us know what you think!donuts, doughnuts, food holiday, free donuts, National Donut Day
