With schools and most restaurants and businesses across the country closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, people are struggling to find ways to celebrate important milestones they’re being forced to miss — from weddings to birthdays to graduations for the entire class of 2020. Seriously, how do you celebrate something as major as graduation when there’s no ceremony, no “Pomp and Circumstance,” and no classmates within six feet? You enlist Krispy Kreme to help out.
The donut chain has announced a new special to help celebrate this year’s grads. This Tuesday, May 19, any grad who wears their cap and gown (or any 2020 graduate gear) into a Krispy Kreme location can nab a free “grad’s dozen” donuts — a mix of glazed and creme-filled treats that spell out “2020” over and over in the box.
The special is good for any grad — high school, college, grad school, you name it. Just be sure to wear that graduation gear — including cap and gown, “Class of 2020” shirt, letterman jacket or other swag — to Krispy Kreme to take part in the celebration.
The graduate dozen box contains two Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled, two Strawberry Iced Kreme Filled, and two Cake Batter Filled donuts, as well as six Yellow Iced Original Glazed donuts. Graduates can only grab their free boxes for one day — Tuesday — but the special 2020 treats are available for purchase at participating Krispy Kreme locations all week long. Although the free “Graduate Dozen” day is May 19, the donuts will be available May 18-24 in store, at the drive-through, and for online delivery.
