Are you ready to sink your teeth into the hot, supple goodness that is the Original Glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme? Celebrate their 80th birthday on July 14 and treat yo'self -- and a few others -- to a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for just 80 cents when you buy any dozen doughnuts. No coupon is required and the offer is good at participating restaurants in the U.S. and Canada.
Interestingly, Krispy Kreme’s birthday is actually on July 13. It was on this day in 1937 that Vernon Rudolph started selling his tasty confections (the recipe for which he purchased from a New Orleans French chef) to grocery stores in Winston-Salem, NC. The smell of the sweet, fried dough drifted through the neighborhood and had passers-by lining up for a taste, so Vernon cut a hole in his building and started selling hot Original Glazed doughnuts directly to customers.
The rest, as they say, is history, though the recipe for Krispy Kreme’s popular Original Glazed doughnut remains the same. Get yours on July 14 and share the sweetness!
