Free doughnuts! Krispy Kreme marks National Doughnut Day with 100,000 giveaways.  

To celebrate National Doughnut Day on Friday, June 2, the home of the Original GlazedR Doughnut, Krispy Kreme will be giving away 100,000 FREE Original GlazedR doughnuts—that’s enough OGs to cover the length of seven Sydney Harbour Bridges!

Customers can visit any participating Krispy Kreme store across SA, NSW, VIC, QLD, and WA on the day to claim their free doughnut.

To help fans celebrate the day with ease, the team at Krispy Kreme has come up with four hot tips on how to get your hands on our beloved Original GlazedR:

Spot the Hot Light from 5-8 p.m.

Sure, the Original Glazed R is hands down the best doughnut in the world, but there’s something else that truly gets fans going: the Hot Light. Whenever Krispy Kreme’s Hot Light is on, it means the fluffy doughnuts are rolling down the production line, glistening through the glaze waterfall, and going straight into your box fresh and warm.

All Krispy Kreme doughnuts are made and delivered fresh daily, but life is not complete if you haven’t tried a warm doughnut straight off the production line. It tastes like a delicious warm cloud, is light in texture, and melts in your mouth.

Did you know more than half (55.2%) of Aussies have never eaten a Krispy Kreme doughnut while it’s still hot? So go on… Spot the Hot Light this National Doughnut Day at your nearest Krispy Kreme Hot Light store, and thank us later.

Don’t visit during peak hours.

According to last year’s National Doughnut Day, between 4 and 5 p.m., close to 8,000 Aussies rushed to their local Krispy Kreme stores to claim a free OG. This year, Krispy Kreme recommends fans visit during quieter times between 6 and 11 a.m. After all, it’s never too early or too late to enjoy a doughnut. If you’re having Original Glazed Doughnuts for morning tea, we recommend you grab a coffee while you’re there!

Plan your travel ahead of time.

It’s serious business to claim your free OG. For Adelaidians, the busiest store from last year was West Croydon, followed by Port Wakefield Road and James Place Adelaide. If you want to avoid long lines, plan ahead and map out your travel route for the day, or simply visit another nearby store. Check out the Krispy Kreme store map here.

Share your joy.

Grab your friends, family, and roommates and make a day out of it. Because who doesn’t love doughnuts? OR be that cool person who rocks up to work with a box of a dozen Original GlazedR doughnuts… It’s  Friday and National Doughnut Day; there is no better excuse to spread joy!

Aimee Cutajar, Head of Marketing at Krispy Kreme Australia, says, “National Doughnut Day is our most popular event of the year. Our much-loved Original Glazed R Doughnuts are made fresh daily, and all our retail staff are rolling up their sleeves in preparation for a busy day ahead. We love to share joy with our fans and thank them for their support. Nothing says National Doughnut Day like a free Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Roll.Please do drop by and celebrate with us and your close family and friends.”

Psst. For those who can’t make it on National Doughnut Day to nab their free Original GlazedR, don’t fret just yet. From now until July 10, if you spot the Hot Light being lit up across any participating Krispy Kreme Hot Light stores, you can redeem a free Original Glazed R doughnut—no purchase necessary!

You’re welcome.
