Friday June 2 is no ordinary Friday. It’s National Doughnut Day, and it’s rapidly approaching. To help you get in the spirit of things, Krispy Kreme Australia is giving away 100,000 of their sweet, Original Glazed doughnuts. That’s enough doughnuts to cover 17 laps of the MCG! Pop into your local store and claim your free doughnut this Friday.
Free doughnuts from Krispy Kreme
The Krispy Kreme team have prepared some tips to help you celebrate the day with ease.
- Spot the Hot Light from 5-8pm – When you see the Hot Light on, that means the doughnuts are rolling down the production line, going through the glaze waterfall and landing in your box fresh and warm. Of course, all Krispy Kreme doughnuts are made fresh daily, but there’s something extra special about trying your treat hot off the production line. Hot Light stores in Victoria are Highpoint, Fawkner, Bulleen and Fountain Gate.
- Avoid peak hour – last year, almost 8,000 people rushed to Krispy Kreme stores around the country to claim their free doughnut between 4pm and 5pm. If you want to avoid the rush, aim for the quiet morning hours between 6am and 11am.
- Plan your travel ahead of time – Avoid long queues and plan out which store you’d like to visit ahead of time. Last year, the busiest store in Melbourne was Chadstone, followed by Fountain Gate and Swanston Street.
“National Doughnut Day is our most popular event of the year,” said Aimee Cutajar, Head of Marketing at Krispy Kreme ANZ. “Our much loved Original Glazed Doughnuts are made fresh daily and all our retail staff are rolling up their sleeves in preparation for a busy day ahead.”
Participating stores include:
- Collins St (CBD)
- Swanston St (CBD)
- Fountain Gate
If you can’t make it on the day to claim your freebie, don’t worry. From now until July 10, if you see the Hot Light lit up at any participating Hot Light store, you can redeem a free OG doughnut. Find your nearest store here.
